The Analytic Attitude, Part II

Fall 2013
Instructor: Lida M. Jeck, MD
Assistant Instructor: Susan Levy, MD
Course Description:
This 16-session course is the second of a series aimed at helping the psychoanalytic therapist conceptualize the intense therapeutic relationship that is at the core of the psychoanalytic process. Both psychoanalysis and psychoanalytic psychotherapy aim to free the patient’s inner life and depend on the analyst/therapist developing what is termed an analytic attitude. This course is intended to deepen the student’s capacity to listen and intervene in an analytic fashion. 
A second goal of this course is to give students a conceptual grasp of the range of psychoanalytic treatments: from psychoanalysis to psychoanalytic psychotherapy to supportive psychotherapy with an emphasis on the more expressive end of the spectrum. We will also explore how different techniques are used to effect therapeutic change.
The course will include both readings and exploration of clinical material from the participants and instructors. Topics will include listening to affect, resistance, transference, and counter-transference and applying these skills to the psychoanalytic process.   
This course is intended for clinicians at intermediate through advanced levels.

    Course Objectives:
    At the end of this course:
    I. The student will deepen his or her analytic approach with different patients by growing in his or her ability to:
  • Foster the patient’s use of transference and enable the patient to develop an analytic attitude.
  • Use his/her counter-transference in understanding the patient, in timing interpretations, and in understanding different perspectives on the counter-transference.
  • Recognize resistances and tailor approaches to them in both the psychoanalytic situation and in supportive treatments.
  • Recognize and use the patient’s affects and consider alternative approaches.
  • Assess readiness for termination against a backdrop of a variety of treatment goals and help patients terminate their treatments.
  • II. The student will better understand:
  • The concepts of “defense transference,” and “transference neurosis” and different perspectives on their usefulness.
  • The concepts “working through,” “reconstruction,” and “role responsiveness.”
  • Different perspectives on the counter-transference.
  • Strategies that span the spectrum between supportive and insight oriented interventions.
