Good Stuff: Courage, Gratitude, Generosity, Forgiveness

Event Description

Good Stuff: Courage, Gratitude, Generosity, Forgiveness

Online - April 3 - May 1, 2015

This course will be offered as a month-long online series of four one-hour video recorded lectures and corresponding readings available to the student 24/7. In additions, the course includes faculty facilitated email threaded discussions and a final one-hour webinar. This training model will allow students to participate from any location for enriching and stimulating study with senior faculty. The first session will focus on courage, second on generosity, the third on gratitude, and the fourth on forgiveness. In each of these sessions, developmental origins of the respective capacities as well as their psychopathologic variants will be discussed. Illustrative vignettes from daily life, culture at large, and clinical work will be presented in all four sessions. While developmental and psychopathological concerns will be raised, the emphasis will remain upon the application of these insights to conducting psychotherapy and psychoanalysis.

Learning objectives:

1) Differentiate between fearlessness, courage, and counterphobia

2) Enumerate the pathological syndromes of generosity

3) List the pathological syndromes of gratitude

4) Demonstrate how to empathize better with patients having difficulty with forgiveness

5) Employ the forgoing insights to improve clinical skills
