Despite Ralph R. Greenson's centrality as a clinical thinker and theoretician for an earlier generation, today his works are little studied. Also, because of the small number of people any one analyst or psychotherapist can treat, group clinical discussion is a foundational learning modality and necessary form of expanding one's own clinical experience. This course features required readings and clinical case discussion, which gives students a chance to get input on challenging cases, and continue with their didactic education, thereby developing a deeper psychoanalytic identity. Furthermore, since the San Diego Psychoanalytic Center is in possesion of the Ralph R. Greenson Memorial Library, from which a number of Greenson volumes have been published over the years (with others in preparation), such a study group is especially appropriate and well favored for success. 20 CE s will be provided for completion of the course. Course fee: $250.
