In the course, an extension from Dr Wise’s discussion of combat trauma two-years ago, we will look at trauma in general, from the perspective of contemporary relational psychoanalysis. The first hour will bring in concepts from attachment theory, Relational psychoanalysis, Self Psychology, and similar approaches which see healing as occurring in the context of relationships, including the inevitable mutuality and co-construction of those experiences. The second half will focus on case examples, including ample time for Question & Answer, and group discussion.
