This year continues in a similar format as last year. We begin with an evening devoted to Psychoanalytic Diagnostics. The second evening focuses on a case (Dora) viewed from multiple perspectives as part of our ongoing effort to foster comparative-integrative thinking. We then look at several major topics (Therapeutic Action & Impasse; Trauma & Dissociation; Psyche & Soma; Neuropsychoanalysis; Dreams) from diverse perspectives as we continue to strive to refine our comparative and integrative skills. (At the end, there is a section on Loewald that was previously in the fourth year. This is a temporary home for this topic; in following years it may be placed elsewhere as a result of our upcoming curriculum review.) We conclude with a Year-End Review/Social evening with candidates from the 3rd and 1st year classes and members of the Executive and Curriculum Committees. We hope you will enjoy the year and find it intellectually and clinically stimulating.
