Concentration in Psychoanalytic 心理学: 英国的对象关系

Develop skills in deep, empathetic listening to open new pathways of growth.

6 concentration-specific学分

1 婴儿观察年份

How do we navigate the complexity of our own emotional experiences? The task of psychoanalytic psychology provides a structure for thinking about emotional complexity and the therapist provides a space where contact can be made with that complexity. There is no greater gift than to offer another person the space to feel their own emotional complexity as they journey inward to navigate the challenges of their humanity in a world full of loss.

西雅图的学校 咨询心理学硕士 with a Concentration in Psychoanalytic 心理学: 英国的对象关系 prepares students to become therapists with experiential learning in this field of study. 通过一年的婴儿观察课程, students have the unique opportunity to learn about early childhood development as it is occurring in real time. This concentration provides a foundational understanding of the British Objects Relations theory to allow the opportunity for students to grow and deepen their clinical experience in the psychoanalytic tradition.

In 英国的对象关系 理论的 object is seen as the earliest mental formations of the primary relationship. Within the historical lineage of psychoanalytic theories, 英国的对象关系 theory is a model that puts the relationship at the center of the theory. Early experiences of life in utero and in infancy are the most vulnerable to traumas of 暴力, 被忽视和自恋的伤口. 一个人学会与自己相处的方式, 世界, and others is shaped by their earliest relationships and is carried with them throughout their lives. 通过在治疗环境中观察, unconscious processes emerge and with deep empathic hearing and listening, the therapist can work with patients to underst和创伤tic events and begin to feel the pain of old wounds. 和治疗师一起感受疼痛, one can begin to connect the inner world of their thoughts to their outward experience.

The relationship between the therapist and the patient, 然后, becomes the foundational space where a person can engage their most formative experiences. 以这种方式, students develop a capacity to work with a wide range of clinical populations, 包括儿童, 青少年, 成年人, 夫妻和家庭, 并且有着多元的文化背景.

“英国的对象关系 gives us a “compass as a way to navigate” (language from Franco Scabbiolo, M.D.) deep, complex emotional divisions and confusions of our world today. 种族歧视, 不宽容的人, 或者是对移民的愤怒, is an emotional confusion in how we locate from within our own interior mind into someone else, 美国以外的.

“从事心理治疗是一项艰苦的工作. I have needed creative and courageous minds to help ground me along the way. 英国的对象关系 theory helps me to think about and feel the experiences of my patients and myself in the midst of the work. 有利于遏制、开放和深化. It helps make the intensity of ambiguity and encounters with primitive experiences survivable and able to be worked with.”
