This seminar explores the development of relational thought beginning with Freud and object relations, and into a 20th century flowering of relational approaches broadly defined – including self-psychology and the intersubjectivity “school”, Sullivan, the interpersonalists and feminist relational-cultural theory, relational psychoanalysis, and contemporary gender and race critique within psychoanalysis. Weekly case study work integrates theological reflection and pastoral clinical praxis.

Note: Enrollment limited to eleven students.
