Tuesdays 7:10-8:55pm Meets six dates: October 24, 31 and November 7, 14, 21, 28

This course introduces 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. 10 NASW-NJ approved CEUs for social
