Technique I, Part 1: Psychoanalytic Perspectives on Psychopathology and Psychodynamic Assessment* (Fall)
1:00 - 2:30 P.M.

As the universe is ordered, so too is the human mind.  Psychoanalysis explains human dimensions, healthy and pathological.  Assessment is the task of diagnostics.  Treatment is determined in accordance with the principles governing the mental apparatus.  In preparation for analytic work, the analyst initiates the working alliance, assesses the patient's condition, offers a response, clarifies roles, and establishes parameters.  In this course, participants will proceed from initial patient contact and conclude where the analysis formally begins.
