Psychoanalytic Psychology

Subject Name: 
Critical Social Inquiry
Course Number: 
Hampshire College
This course will give an overview of two major psychological theories, attachment and psychoanalytic theories. These theories emphasize the development and derailment of relationships, self and other-wise. We will use these theoretical perspectives to explore the interpersonal, intersubjective, and intrapsychic dimensions of our relational worlds. Historical and cross-cultural aspects of these psychological approaches will be integrated throughout our discussions. Primary and secondary sources, memoirs, clinical cases and research, and plays/film will be used to illustrate psychological concepts based on relational patterns. We will elaborate on possible interdisciplinary applications of these theoretical frameworks.
Power, Community and Social Justice Multiple Cultural Perspectives Writing and Research Students are expected to spend 6-8 hours weekly on work and preparation outside of class time.
Instructor Permission: 
Permission is required for interchange registration during the add/drop period only.
