RACE, CLASS, AND CULTURE THROUGH A PSYCHOANALYTIC LENS.

RELATIONAL CHILD PSYCHOTHERAPY

will have both a theoretical and a practical, clinical focus. We will first consider the history and development of child therapy, looking at how concepts of transference /countertransference and play have evolved in the child therapy literature. Clinical examples from participants and the instructor will show the practical relevance and applicability of these concepts in day-to-day work with children. Issues raised by work with parents, teachers and other professionals will be addressed from a psychoanalytic/systemic perspective.

ADOLESCENT THERAPY (CO-INSTRUCTOR: JILLIAN STILE, PH.D.)

Adolescent therapy, like adolescents themselves, require us to “think different” from the way we are accustomed to think about work with adults and children. Adolescence itself has a number of sub-stages, and culturally diverse manifestations, that the clinician needs to keep in mind. We will consider some of the literature that has grappled with the unique and perplexing issues of adolescence and adolescent therapy. 

 

12 sessions, 12CEUs

The seminars take place at Dr. Altman’s office on the Upper Westside of Manhattan, New York City.

The fee for each seminar is $900.
