What constitutes psychological work? How can we tell if it is happening? How can we know if a treatment is going well? What are we working toward? What are we really doing? This seminar will examine the role of the therapist in the generation of psychological growth. We will consider various ways of thinking about the unconscious, and read sections of papers from several authors describing different ideas as to what comprises psychological work in psychoanalytic psychotherapy.
