NEUROSCIENCE AND PSYCHOANALYSIS

The Wisdom of Psychodynamic Theory: What Does it Offer Us In Our Multicultural World?

Conversations Among Psychodynamic Clinicians

Since Freud, and across professional and academic disciplines, psychodynamic thinking has been idealized, debated, and at times denigrated as a form of therapeutic practice.   And yet, the meaningfulness and utility of psychodynamic theorizing persists, finding sustained life within ordinary contemporary psychotherapeutic practice.  This series, using discrete sets of psychodynamic theory in combination with personal and clinical associations by small panels of ICSW faculty and doctoral students, will explore how and why these discourses matter in the context of our diverse social world.

3 CEUs per event / 21 CEUs full summer series

Objectives:

1)    To promote consideration of the ways in which psychodynamic theory continues to inform contemporary therapeutic practice.

2)   To facilitate consideration of clinical implications of psychodynamic thinking within diverse practice contexts.
