The focus of this class will be on learning to work more effectively with chronically destructive patients. These are patients whose destructive response to opportunities and treatments in their lives often puts them at great risk. Through focused readings and clinical examples, we will explore the delicate equilibrium between life and death instincts as a means of refining and enhancing our clinical capacity with these challenging patients.
