Psychoanalytic Perspectives on Bereavement and Mourning
Loss and mourning are part of every successful psychoanalytic treatment. This course will sample readings from every era of psychoanalytic thinking beginning with a close reading of Freud’s “Mourning and Melancholia” through more contemporary views of bereavement and mourning. Readings and a brief video will sample memoir that capture the texture of loss and its aftermath. The concept of loss and bereavement will be extended beyond death and touch on the full range of losses that must be grieved. Participants will be encouraged to present clinical material from their practice.
