This course meets on six dates and will introduce students to the unique way that a clinician listens as a psychoanalytic psychotherapist. By allowing clients to introduce topics without interference, the clinician listens to the client’s story, mode of communication and the story that is not being told. The untold story is analyzed silently as the unconscious communication is reported in dreams, projections, defense mechanisms, resistances and transference communications. After listening attentively, the clinician intervenes with questions, not interpretations, in order to strengthen the ego.
