This course will help students gain an understanding of working psychoanalytically with couples. This approach enables a therapist to think about both of the individuals as well as the couple’s shared unconscious and to help the couple learn how to think about what they are creating together. We will explore the following concepts – the couple state of mind, the couple’s projective system, projective identification, unconscious beliefs and phantasies, as well as struggles with separateness and narcissistic relating. We will consider transference and countertransference issues. Case material will be presented to highlight these topics.
