New Ten-Week Course: Analytic Listening and Concepts

Begins Monday, September 30, 2013 6:30–8:00pm Upper West Side location

How we listen, what we listen for, and how we choose what to speak about are at the core of psychoanalytic practice and engagement with analysands.

In this first course on analytic listening, we will address some of these questions. Beginning by listening to a poem as if it were a first session, students will be encouraged to bring their intuitive understanding and life experience to their listening.

We will then investigate some initial consultations and readings about these first meetings and learn how these first encounters can stir ‘’emotional turbulence” in both the analyst and the patient.

Psychoanalysis has a body of knowledge that informs our listening and our speech. In this ten week course, the student will study some of these central psychoanalytic concepts. Students will learn to listen for and recognize different levels of anxieties, to hear evidence of unconscious fantasy in clinical material and in dreams, to discern the difference between symbolic communication and concrete communication and to recognize transference phenomena and their own counter-transference reactions.

The fee for this 10 session course is $350. There will be a $100 non-refundable deposit to hold your place, with the balance of $250 to be paid in full by July 15th.
