Course: One Plus One Equals Three: Couple Therapy for the Analytically-Oriented Clinician
Instructor: Wendy Greenspun, Ph.D.
In clinical work with couples, the intricacy of each individual’s internal world meets up with the couple’s unique dyadic interpersonal system, forming a complex matrix for the couple therapist to navigate. This course is designed to help psychoanalysts expand their theoretical understanding of couples, including the interplay of psychodynamic and systemic views, and to develop a greater repertoire of techniques for engagement and intervention based on these ideas. We will also look at some of the specific contraindications and unique complications involved in doing couple work, including such challenges as interpersonal violence and affairs.
Dates: Saturdays, Jan.16, 23, 30 and Feb. 6, 2016, 10:30AM to 12:00PM.
Location: 60 W. 10th St (between 5th and 6th Avenues), Suite 6B
