This class series runs until May 29, 2018.
The Middle School, or Independents, were the psychoanalysts who utilized British Object Relations theory but developed that theory in different ways than the Kleinians and the Anna Freudians. The Independents had many differences of opinion about theory and technique, but they shared a basic attitude in common. This was to evaluate and respect ideas for their use and truth value—no matter from where they came. In this course, we will be reading the four Independent British psychoanalysts who by their writing and teaching have had the biggest influence on psychoanalysis… Fairbairn, Balint, Bowlby and especially Winnicott, along with contemporary people such as Coltart, Bollas, Symington and Phillips. We will discuss both theoretical material and clinical application.
