Tuesday Seminar - Family Therapy with Marilyn Charles, Ph.D., ABPP
In this seminar, we will study some considerations relevant to the practice of family therapy at the Austen Riggs Center. We will look first at views from within the work at the Center, and then turn to psychoanalytic perspectives on family therapy, We will then look at some of the capacities we are building through this work, finishing with some views that take into account the larger social context, as well, ending with a view from within, not the Center, but ourselves.
This seminar is predicated on the supposition that active learning is crucial to integration of material. Please come to each seminar having read that day’s papers in depth, with at least one question or talking point from each of that day’s readings.
