Relational Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy
A 30-week seminar
Taught by Julia Davies, Ph.D., Maria Slowiczek, Ph.D., and Jane Hassinger, L.M.S.W.
In contemporary psychoanalytic theory, the focus of analytic inquiry has shifted from a one-person intrapsychic conflict model to a two-person model in which conflict, desire and personal growth are understood to develop in the context of relationships and the social world. Influenced by postmodern critiques of the bounded self, as well as feminist theory, complex systems theory, and attachment theory, the “relational turn” in psychoanalysis has led to innovative clinical approaches and new theoretical perspectives including the Relational, Interpersonal, Intersubjective, and Self Psychological schools of thought. This Psychotherapy Program is designed to give experienced clinicians the opportunity to learn to think and practice from these relational perspectives. [P] 54 CE credits
