Schedule: Beginning the week of January 10th through April 18th, 2023 – Tuesdays 11:45AM to 1:15PM (Mountain Time)
Instructor: Joseph Scallia III, Psya D
Couse Description: This course will be taught in seminar fashion, that is each week the class will include some lecturing pursuant to its weekly readings followed by a discussion by all the participants. We will attempt to bring the often highly esoteric, experience-distance concepts into an experience near reception, so that students might recognize their occurrences or omissions in their practices and lives. Particularly the link of having internalized the experiences of Lacanian psychoanalytic ideas and the ability to conduct Lacanian analysis will be always at least latent in what we are addressing.

PT111-K Group Supervision in Psychoanalysis
Schedule: Beginning January 26th through May 4th – Thursdays 9:00am to 10:30am (Mountain Time)
Instructor: Robert Brill, MDiv, MSW, NCPsya
Course Description: This class will introduce students to the principles of modern psychoanalysis, both in theory and practice. We will examine different transferences, counter-transferences, and how patients induce their feelings in us. We will look at what interventions are useful in resolving resistances, especially in the case of highly traumatized and therefore “difficult” people. Part of the focus will be on the role of destructive drives in psychopathology. We will also learn how to deal with the stress of working with such patients and how to keep ourselves from burning out or developing reactions that could negatively impact our lives.
