Psychoanalytic field Theory is one of the key contemporary models for understanding clinical phenomena. It spans and integrates several different international schools of thought and provides a distinctive approach to listening, understanding, and working in the analytic process. This course will explore its various developments in contemporary practice. We will look at how the field as opposed to the patient is seen as the analytic object of inquiry.

Learning Objectives:

1. Define Field Theory in relation to its origins in South American Psychoanalysis

2. Discuss the contributions of Klein, Winnicott & Bion to the concept of the field

3. Relate the contribution of the philosophical understanding of the phenomenal field to the psychoanalytic concept

4. Clarify Ogden’s contribution to an understanding of the field in his conception of a relational formulation of projective identification

5. Locate the “third” as a field concept as explored in the work of Green, Ogden, and the Relational School

6. Discuss the central contribution of the Italian School, with Ferro and Civitarese’s framing of the field.
