What, Where Is Psychoanalysis: Classic Concepts, New Meanings

Online - February 3 - 28, 2014 | Weekend In-Residence - March 1 - 2, 2014 at MSPP

Andrea Celenza, Ph.D., instructor

This course traces the history of psychoanalytic theorizing and technique from classical positivist, one-person conceptualizations to a relational, two-person, intersubjective engagement. This trajectory is designed to highlight selected basic concepts from both classical and contemporary perspectives, examining the epistemological underpinnings of each as psychoanalytic theorizing is transformed throughout its history. Each topic is covered from an historical vantage point to establish a foundation of the concept as it was originally conceived. Then these concepts are reformulated through a postmodern lens with a resultant discussion of the changes that ensued due to the transformations of theory and technique. Readings have been selected that represent seminal moments in the history of psychoanalytic thinking, marking a turning point, an elaboration of the concept, or an alternative view in order to expand your knowledge of the issues and debates in the history of the concept. In many cases, the papers we will discuss are those currently being debated in the ongoing evolution of psychoanalytic theory and technique.

Learning Objectives:

1) Demonstrate a working knowledge of the differences between classical and contemporary psychoanalytic stances in relation to their patients

2) Describe the ways in which psychoanalytic theory and technique varies across time (historically) and space (geographically)

3) Discuss the various meanings of transference and countertransference as well as trace how these concepts changed over time, especially through differing epistemological lenses
