This seminar focuses on the application of traditional psychoanalytic concepts to clinical work. Beginning clinicians, as well as non-clinicians thinking about entering the field, often find difficulty in formulating their understanding of clinical phenomena and the patient therapist interaction using psychoanalytic concepts that, in the wider field of contemporary psychotherapy, sound old and archaic. Our goal in this seminar is to demonstrate the usefulness and aliveness of traditional psychoanalytic concepts, in framing a patient’s dynamics with the therapist as well as formulating the central issues determining his or her pathology and request for treatment. The four basic concepts on which we will narrow our focus are: the unconscious, transference, fantasy, and repetition.

Learning Objectives:

1. Participants shall be able to explain the concept of “The Unconscious”

2. Participants shall be able to describe how Transference manifests itself in the clinical encounter

3. Participants shall be able to explain the relationship between unconscious fantasy and presenting symptoms and request for treatment

4. Participants shall be able to describe how repetition manifests in the patient-therapist interaction

5. Participants shall be able to demonstrate the clinical applicability of the concepts of the unconscious, transference, fantasy, and repetition
