Emotional Communication:  Modern Psychoanalytic Techniques in the Classroom

  • This event has passed.

May 5, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

Emotional Communication Series

Emotional communication is both the common experience of resonating emotionally with another person or group and a specific clinical technique. Modern psychoanalysis offers a range of theory based, goal-directed techniques in which clinicians use repeated countertransference emotional inductions to make interventions.  This series offers four seminars on the use of emotional communication:  in clinical work and training, in the classroom setting, in family life and with people suffering from dementia.
