This course will examine the many and varied clinical situations that the course leaders present, that look at both the individual and community experiences of trauma. Each evening a psychoanalyst will present on a specific theme and lead a discussion. Participants will also be encouraged to bring in some of their own casework. We will focus on those theoretical concepts in psychoanalysis that we find particularly useful in clinical work.

Learning Objectives:

At the end of the course the participants will be able to:

  1. Understand in more depth the internal dynamics and the effects of trauma on the individual, from several psychoanalytically oriented viewpoints.
  2. Explore uses of parameters in psychoanalytic treatment of traumatized patients.
  3. Understand the effects of trauma in society in general.
