PSYCHOANALYTIC COUPLE PSYCHOTHERAPY GROUP NOW ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS
FOR INTENSIVE STUDY PROGRAM IN PSYCHOANALYTIC PSYCHOTHERAPY OF COUPLES 2015-2016
by Julie Friend, LCSW and Leora Benioff, PhD
PCPG’s program offers an immersion in the foundations of Tavistock and other psychoanalytic thinking about and working with couples. Tavistock couple theory, rooted in Klein, Winnicott, Bion, Meltzer and others, explores a wide range of issues, including the implications of Oedipal development regarding couple functioning, unconscious object choice and shared unconscious anxieties, the role of projection in structuring couple relationships, sexuality, technical application of theory, and transference and countertransference in work with couples. The coming year will feature a rich array of theoretical classes, case conferences, and film events.
