Thursday Evening Courses

October 7 - December 16, 2010

Sigmund Freud as an Object Relations Theorist
Instructor: Dr. Rafael Javier
This course offers a careful critical examination of major original works of Freud from its very beginning of his publication
on hysteria to his later works on the extent to which the work of psychoanalysis is greatly limited by the strength of
the instincts in terms of its capacity to produce permanent cure. The emphasis of this course is on the careful
delineation of how Freud’s concepts  of the “object” is present in his major works, and how his thinking contributed
extensively to current theoretical positions on object relations.  In this context, we examine his work on symptom
formation, narcissism, sexuality, masochism, to name a few.  Students are expected to read these original works,
which are also supplemented with other relevant writings from current thinkers.

Theory and American Object Relations theory, as well as in “in vivo” role playing demonstrations. Trough the role playing,
the students will have an opportunity to “get inside the skin of their patients,” or experience their patients from the inside
out, while the Instructor will play the role of the psychoanalytic object relations psychotherapist-analyst. Various
character resistances will be discussed in relation to Donald W. Winnicott’s contributions to this topic, as well as to
