A Practical Introduction to Countertransference-Based Psychoanalytic Thinking from a Neo-Kleinian/Bionian Intersubjective Perspective

April 21, 2018, 9:30 AM - 12:30 PM


Are you interested in conceptualizing, thinking and working more psychoanalytically? In this course you gain confidence assessing and understanding your patients’ dynamics and formulating precise psychoanalytic interpretations. You learn to attune more accurately to your patients’ primitive mental states. And most importantly, you expand your capacity to use your own responsive countertransference feelings and phantasies to meet the singular needs of your patient. A Neo-Kleinian/Bionian Intersubjective perspective is privileged in this course, but not exclusively so, in helping you develop countertransference-based psychoanalytic interpretations in your clinical work. Ample opportunity for students to share clinical cases is provided and encouraged.

Learning Objectives

As a result of attending this course, participants should be able to:

  • Recognize, tolerate and utilize negative transference beneficially
  • Learn to use silence constructively
  • Discern and utilize ‘nearly imperceptible perturbations’ in the analytic field
  • Build capacity to think on your feet in critical situations while experiencing disruptive/disorienting mental and somatic state
