Foundations in Psychoanalytic Thought 1 2017-18 (Foundations 1)

Course Description

OSPS offers various educational opportunities including monthly seminars, study groups, and the Foundations in Psychoanalytic Thought course.  The Foundations course is an intensive survey course that aims to deepen understanding in three schools of thought in Psychoanalysis. This course will occur on a weekly basis, Fridays from 1:00pm – 4:00pm, usually from September through May. Following the two introductory sessions, each week’s time will be divided equally between didactic presentation and case conference. The course work will be divided into four sections. The first section, Introduction to Psychoanalytic Models, will take place over the first two weeks and will provide an overview of the three overarching psychoanalytic models. The other three sections will include Conflict Theory, Object Relations Theory, and Relational Theory.  Each of the sections will feature major theories within these schools of thought, incorporating how these views translate into the clinical work between the therapist and client.  Students will be invited to present cases to be discussed from the various psychoanalytic models.  The Case Conference faculty orientation will roughly correspond to the section being presented.  Up to one hundred five hours of continuing education units are available for psychologists, social workers, licensed professional counselors, licensed marriage and family therapists, and licensed alcohol and drug counselors.

Learning Goals and Objectives

  1. Participants will gain an understanding of each of the major theoretical views within psychoanalytic thought.
  2. Participants will learn to differentiate between these theoretical positions both theoretically and in the clinical session.
  3. Participants will gain an understanding of the application of each of the theoretical positions in the clinical setting through presentation and discussion of clinical material in case conferences as well as observation of such presentations by fellow participants.

Fees

The course is open to licensed clinicians and those under supervision working towards licensure.  The course will be limited to the first 12 applicants to register.  The total cost for the course is $850 and this will include membership in OSPS and free admissions to monthly seminars from August 2017 to May 2018.  A $100 deposit will be due at the time of the application and the total amount will be due on August 18, 2017.
