Description: The PTP Graduate Seminar Series continues this fall with an emphasis on the unconscious. This course will focus on listening and incorporating into the plan for treatment the unconscious (or latent) material which the patient is simultaneously bringing.

While the series will be focused around psychoanalytic theories of development, it will assume that the participant already has basic grounding in developmental theory. In these seminars, we will approach treatment as a developmental experience. From this perspective, all difficulties that are viewed as difficulties with development and the therapeutic action, are seen as facilitating the individual’s return to a progressive path of development.

Though there will be some continuity between the modules, it is not expected that participants need take them all. In order to facilitate a good environment for conversation, the group size will be limited to 10.

CME Objectives: 

  1. Describe the different aspects of unconscious mental life and how they relate to each other.
  2. Explain how different influences affect the development of the unconscious mind, in both childhood and therapy.

    Instructor: Rex McGehee, MD, FABP specializes in child adolescent and adult psychoanalysis. He is a Training and Supervising Psychoanalyst of the Denver Institute for Psychoanalysis and member of the Denver Psychoanalytic Society. This will be his 11th session teaching the PTP Graduate Seminar.
