Trauma, Psychoanalysis and the Body
This 8-session course will examine the impact of chronic, relational trauma on the mind and body of the developing person. We will discuss the complexities of treating “adult survivors” using contemporary psychoanalytic lenses such as relational schemas, affect regulation, attachment, and self-states. The work of major contributors in mind-body trauma studies, including Bessel van der Kolk, Peter Levine (Somatic Experiencing), Francine Shapiro, (EMDR), and Pat Ogden (Sensorimotor Psychotherapy) and Stephen Porges (Polyvagal Theory) will be introduced and integrated with psychoanalytic approaches to treatment of trauma (including the contributions of Bowlby, Fonagy, Schore, and Bromberg).
Patients with complex developmental trauma require careful assessment and thoughtful use of technique. This class will go beyond theory in that each participant will be asked to hold one patient in mind during the course, to assess that person's particular strengths and vulnerabilities, and to “try on” new perspectives to understanding and working with that patient.
Prerequisite: Participants should have a basic understanding of psychoanalytic theory and its application to the treatment of patients. Applicants can meet this requirement through previous coursework, training, or supervision (e.g., Thinking Psychoanalytically: The Basics; the PPSC Introductory Course; psychoanalytic coursework or supervision in graduate school/residency or post-graduation). Applicants who do not meet this requirement may register for the course with permission from the instructors.
Training Program Credit: Students who successfully complete this course can earn elective credit in both the psychoanalysis and psychoanalytic psychotherapy training programs.
About the Instructors: Heather Craige, LCSW and Beverly Simmons, PhD, LCSW
