British Object Relations II 2023-24

Instructors: Chris Moseman, MA LMHC & Joanne della Penta, ATR LMHC FIPA

Course canceled.

This course will span the academic year – 18 sessions.

In this course, we will be extending the study of British Object Relations theory into the specifics of clinical work with patients. We will consider and discuss such topics as the ubiquity of narcissism, primitive mental states, countertransference phenomena, the mind’s relationship with the body, and conscious and unconscious levels of communication in the analytical process. Readings will accompany each topic and focus on authors such as Winicott, Rosenfeld, Caper, Tustin, and Bion, as well as more recent authors of Civitarense, Eshel and Eigen. Clinical material will make up a portion of each class, and will be presented by instructors and students. Participants need to be in clinical practice and completion of Foundations of British Object Relations (BOR I) or prior permission of the instructors is required.
