Interpretation and Working Through (402)
Instructor: Jon Meyer, MD

Description:  Psychoanalysts work to develop their mastery of analytic interventions. Interpretation and working through are processes vital to psychoanalytic work. We will study these concepts and their evolution and then apply them to clinical situations. Class participants will be asked to present their own case materials that illustrate these processes and their utility and difficulties.  

Target Audience:  This class is for students at the intermediate to advanced level.

Format: This class will combine lecture and seminar formats; student participation is encouraged. All the PCC courses are small group discussions which require participants to read and synthesize the materials presented. PCC faculty ensure that gaps in knowledge are addressed.
