Through a psychoanalytic lens, this min-course will examine working with couples, while paying special attention to socio-political and systemic dynamics that often underlie couples’ dynamics. The instructor will employ psychoanalytic concepts such as projective identification, in tandem with postcolonial race theory, and feminist and queer theory, and attend to other ideological factors that are often powerful sources of difference that couples and analysts do not always know how to engage. The course will utilize didactic theoretical material, case studies from instructor’s practice, film footage from the docu-series Couples Therapy, and participants cases, within a large and small groups format.

Learning Objectives: After attending the presentation, participants will be able to
– Describe ways to employ a psychoanalytic lens to couples’ work.
– Discuss the importance of socio-political and systemic dynamics that underlie couples’ dynamics.
– Apply psychoanalytic concepts and ideological factors in couples’ therapy.
