The “Introduction to Psychoanalysis Seminars” organized by our association are open to psychiatrists and psychiatric assistants, psychologists, counselors and psychology undergraduate and graduate students who would like to study primary psychoanalytic texts and are interested in the application of the psychoanalytic perspective in their personal or institutional practice.
The third series of the seminars will take place this year under the title “Beginning Psychoanalysis”. In the previous two years participants have explored, through primary texts, Sigmund Freud’s theory of psychoanalysis, psychoanalytic concepts in clinical practice and diversity of the fields of application with theoretical seminars and case presentations. In our third year, we will present Freud’s theory of psychoanalysis through authors who have depicted his theory most succinctly in order to facilitate an understanding of psychoanalytic theory and treatment among participants who are getting acquainted with psychoanalysis.
The seminars will address psychoanalytic theory, defense mechanisms, personality organizations and psychopathology in the framework of Charles Brenner’s An Elementary Textbook of Psychoanalysis, Nancy McWilliams’s Psychoanalytic Diagnosis and Anna Freud’s Ego and the Mechanisms of Defense. As in previous years, the seminars will also entail case presentations to share clinical experience and discuss basic clinical applications.
The seminars will take place between October 2010-May 2011
each Monday between 20:00-22:00.
