Through both readings and intensive class discussion, students in this seminar will consider the psychology of those defined as “perpetrators” of interpersonally mediated traumatic events. The seminar will focus on gaining a better sense and understanding of the psychological organization of such persons (especially in terms of the role of dissociation), and will explore the clinical challenges inherent in working with them. In depth discussion of clinical material will be utilized with an eye towards conceptualizing potential countertransference interferences and pitfalls in working with such phenomena.
