Psychiatric and psychodynamic approaches will be compared; philosophical and ideological interests in specific modes of treatment will be explored. Throughout, we will consider the ways psychoanalysis – both classical and contemporary – has transformed views of mental distress by offering theories of unconscious and relational processes.
Participants will be offered opportunities to learn from leading thinkers in each field, to share their clinical work, receive group supervision and integrate theory into their psychotherapy practice.
