From November 8, 2024 - May 9, 2025

By delving into clinical aspects of cultural, social, and political upheaval, this course will create space for clinicians to process, grapple, and play with experiences of and responses to the ever-shifting reality in which we and our patients find ourselves. In a way unique to psychoanalysis, this course explores the nuances of these phenomena while also exploring potential limits to what psychoanalysis can offer and what interdisciplinary ideas can enhance the breadth and depth of our thinking.
