Intensive Study Group
10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Psychoanalytic Institute of Northern California (PINC), San Francisco

Under the guidance of insightful, experienced instructors, this year’s intensive study groups will investigate theoretical approaches to the negative and practical engagements with it in the clinical setting, considering such topics as trauma, the fusion of Eros and the death drive, negative therapeutic reaction, psychic retreats, perverse modes of relating, destructive narcissism, and excessive splitting. In some sections, reading assignments will be supplemented by films or include plays that vividly illustrate course themes. We invite you to explore with us how apparent challenges to psychotherapy may vitally contribute to the process of human transformation.
