Developmental Crises, Part 2
Instructors:  Paul Brinich, Ph.D. and Elissa Baldwin Murphy, Ph.D.

There are developmental challenges to be mastered throughout the life cycle. This course, the second in a series of four, will focus on the period that, roughly speaking, falls between 5 and 15 years of age (i.e., latency and pre-adolescence). We will utilize a psychoanalytic perspective to explore the intrapsychic and interpersonal developmental tasks common to this period and the issues that result from failure to master them.

We will consider differing theoretical perspectives using readings from classic and more recent articles. Relevant clinical material will be presented, and there will be ample opportunity for discussion.

This course is appropriate for intermediate through advanced students, as well as clinicians with extensive experience who have the permission of the instructor.

Relevant clinical material will be presented, and there will be ample opportunity for discussion.
