    NYPSI Extension Program: Psychoanalytic Principles of Child Development

    This is a course designed to help students better understand child development phases from a psychoanalytic perspective: the pre-oedipal, oedipal, latency, and early, middle and late adolescent phases. The course will highlight how certain issues affect child development at the different stages: sibling trauma, separation anxiety, beating fantasies, the origin and evolution of childhood narcissism, family romance fantasies (oedipal and latency fantasies) and object removal in adolescence. The discussion of these universal childhood fantasies is facilitated by a study of certain classical papers and current considerations of these issues. Clinical examples will be offered to illustrate the concepts being presented.

    5 CME/CE credits offered.

    Dr. David Sawyer is a member of NYPSI and is on the faculty of Weill Cornell-New York Presbyterian Hospital.

    Course Objectives

    Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:

    1. Describe the psychoanalytic nature of developmental phases in childhood: i.e., pre-oedipal, oedipal, latency, and early, middle,and late adolescence.

    2. Explain which principles organize development, including progression and fixation, the formation of unconscious fantasies, unconscious conflict, and the influence of parenting and parent psychology in order to recognize clinically significant developmental issues in childhood: sibling trauma, separation anxiety, sadomasochism, family romance fantasies, the evolution of narcissism, and object removal.
