Tuesday Seminar - Interpretation with Dr. Jennifer Stevens and Dr. David Mintz
This six-week course will provide an overview of various aspects of psychoanalytic interpretation, both theoretical and clinical – the “What,” “How,” and “Whens” of interpretation. Topics will include: the beginning historical theorization of the therapeutic action of interpretation, the relative merits and limits of transference and extra-transference interpretations, the importance of patients’ responses to interpretations, and the place and art of interpretation in working with more serious psychopathology. In an effort to bring the material more clinically alive, we encourage discussion of participants’ clinical work where relevant to the reading.
