Course
The Interpersonal Psychoanalytic Approach to Working with Veterans

Andrew S. Berry, Ph.D., Psy.D.
Captain Nate Emery, USMC (Ret'd)
Typically, when a veteran comes for psychotherapy for PTSD and related trauma, the PTSD is in the foreground of treatment, with everything else in the background. In the interpersonal approach, relationships and how PTSD effects them are in the foreground, with everything else in the background. Attachment issues and relationships are given special focus, and how PTSD effects them. Early clinical inquiries even during intake about the veteran’s brothers and sisters on the battlefield are emphasized, as well how the characteristics of the veteran’s relationships before battle change after the battle is over. Special focus is given to how relationships to people in positions of authority develop prior to treatment, and how re-parenting can occur to an extent, when trust in the process is achieved. New relationship development is then sought in clinical treatment.

Course
Regulation-Focused Psychotherapy for Children With Externalizing Behaviors: A Psychodynamic Approach

Leon Hoffman, MD
Timothy Rice, MD
In this course we will describe the essence of our treatment manual (Manual of Regulation-Focused Psychotherapy for Children (RFP-C) with Externalizing Behaviors(https://www.routledge.com/products/9781138823747).

This includes how the clinician works to understand the meaning of the child's maladaptive disruptive behavior. The treatment does not focus on teaching the child proper behavior or on teaching the parents management techniques. Instead, the therapist communicates to the child that there is meaning to the behavior and that it may feel safer to act up than feel painful emotions, such as sadness, shame, guilt, or loss. The child's defensive maneuvers to avoid painful affects and the transference and countertransference issues are addressed. Moreover, any child treatment necessarily includes an active parenting component. In our manual we help parents to understand the meaning of their children's behavior and how to approach their children in more effective ways. We help parents achieve greater understanding of their child as an individual with needs, worries, and responses to stress in their lives.

Course
Psychoanalytic Couple Therapy

Graciela Abelin-Sas Rose, M.D.
Peter Mezan, Ph.D.
This course will present results of an ongoing collaborative research by two analysts working in two different modalities – individual and couple. The comparison of the dynamics in the two settings reveals many new issues and questions. For instance: Is there an unconscious organization of the couple distinct from the unconscious organizations of the individuals in it? What are the differences between the individual’s transferences to the analyst and to the patient’s partner? How much can the analyst know about the patient’s partner? At every meeting the instructors will present clinical material illustrating these and other issues.
