ABOUT THE PROGRAM

The Institute of Contemporary Psychoanalysis Saturday Series offers classes in contemporary psychoanalysis to both licensed therapists and those in training who are not yet licensed. Classes meet once a month for nine consecutive months on the 2nd Saturday from 10:00 a.m. until 2:00  p.m. in the Pasadena/Glendale area. Lunch will be provided.

All courses are taught by ICP psychoanalysts and upper level candidates who have extensive experience and expertise in contemporary psychoanalytically- informed psychotherapy. The Series will introduce contemporary psychoanalytic ideas from various theories and treatment approaches. Special clinical issues will also be examined. Then, the Series will shift to assisting the student with understanding some of the key psychoanalytic processes in treatment. Finally, an abridgment of the presentations will be discussed in a group format to explore the students’ application of  learning to their own clinical practice.

Class topics will cover Relationships, Special Treatment Considerations and Psychoanalytic Process.

Relationships: The relationship is a core treatment component that is highlighted in this series. We break down treatment configurations and view through psychoanalytic theory and clinical application.

Special Treatment Considerations: Many analysts believe some prominent treatment issue such as addictions, psychotropic medications in treatment, and the need to work with multi-disciplinary teams makes a patient ‘unanalyzable’. Contemporary psychoanalytic thinking has challenged this notion.

Psychoanalytic Processes: The most valuable quality of psychoanalysis is process. During each class, students will provide case examples.

A facilitated discussion will consider the various theories and treatment approaches by examining the students’ clinical cases. The group will examine how the ideas learned could be applied to further enhance their therapeutic work with patients.
