Psychoanalytic Process*            
 

How do we communicate our trust in analytic process -- our hope -- to our analysands, and how do we help them to develop shared analytic goals?  What are the contributions to the transformative power of psychoanalytic process of insight and experience, of fit, of the analyst's empathy, understanding, and of his/her effort to help the patient create meaning/find words for what he/she is saying/feeling/doing?  In grappling with these questions, we will discuss both readings from a multiplicity of theoretical perspectives and clinical vignettes from class participants' analytic work.  Please e-mail Dr. Levin at when you register.
