The Theories of Melanie Klein
Weekly Event - Every Wednesday: 9:00 AM (EDT)
This first of the new 7-week course series on the Object relations Clinical Theory addresses the fundamental clinical and developmental contributions of Melanie Klein, stressing qualitative psychic process issues over content issues.
It will help the analyst/ therapist to better understand the answers to sometimes difficult questions related to "interpreting object," "historical subject," symbolic level of understanding of self-reflective capacity, capacity to mourn, and many others. Melanie Klein's papers on "Mourning and Its Relation to Manic Depressive States" and "Envy and Gratitude", and also Thomas Ogden's "The Matrix of the Mind" and works of Susan Kavaler-Adler will be utilized, along with the clinical examples.
Class starts on October 7th, 2009, 9am-10:15am, meets every Wednesday, for 7 weeks.
Cost: $300/ 7-week course.
This course is complemented by the group Supervision course (cost also $300), which is not mandatory, but which can be taken separately from the Clinical Theory class. The Group Supervision class starts right after the Clinical Theory class and meets at the same location, from 10:15am to 11:30am.
