The fall term typically begins with an introduction and historical overview of fundamental concepts. Questions such as what psychoanalysis is and how it can be helpful are explored. This is followed by a number of seminars focusing on the original work of Freud, including famous case histories. The final section in the fall term addresses core concepts such as transference/counter-transference, defence/resistance, applied psychoanalysis, dream theory and the work of Melanie Klein and Wilfred Bion.
The winter term includes a more in-depth study of the different schools of psychoanalysis from classical to contemporary, including child development,attachment theory, ego psychology, object relations, self psychology, and relational theory. In addition, there are seminars on addiction, women, sexual diversity and psychoanalysis. Finally, the curriculum finishes with seminars on practical applications of theory to technique, neuropsychoanalysis and addictions.
