Eight sessions, the third Fridays of the month:

October 18, November 15, December 20, 2019, January 17, February 21, March 20, April 17 & May 15, 2020 | 12:30 – 2:30 pm

Narrative: Intersubjectivity theory sees the relationship between patient and therapist as the primary source of psychological change. It provides a complex understanding of the clinical relationship that includes new ways of thinking about transference and countertransference, and how therapists’ misunderstandings of the ways they affect their patients can exacerbate the very problems they’re trying to treat.

In this seminar, we’ll study the basic concepts of intersubjectivity theory with the goal of translating theory into practice. In each class meeting, we’ll discuss a foundational paper in intersubjectivity theory. Topics will include understanding and working with intersubjective conjunctions and disjunctions; understanding the repetitive and developmental dimensions of the transference; and how affects organize self-experience. This will be followed by a discussion of a case in which participants will learn to effectively translate these ideas from theory to practice. Participants should develop greater confidence in using the clinical relationship to facilitate meaningful psychological change.

Jane Rubin, PhD, received her PhD in Philosophy from UC Berkeley, her PhD in Clinical Psychology from the Wright Institute, and her PsyD in Contemporary Psychoanalysis at the Institute of Contemporary Psychoanalysis in Los Angeles. She is in private practice in Berkeley.
