Welcome to Life Span Development II; we’re excited to be on this eight-week journey with you as we explore how human beings grow and develop, all through a psychoanalytic lens. This course is designed to create space to think about several areas of development: what impacts development? How are your own developmental processes inevitably involved in the development of the people you work with therapeutically and psychoanalytically? What happens when these dyadic developmental paths conflict? Our hope is that these readings (and subsequent discussions) will spur on further exploration for you, as well as offer you ways of listening and thinking that aid you in interacting and intervening with your patients.

Learning Objectives

Students will be able to:

  1. identify developmental milestones from latency, adolescence, and adult development
  2. identify diverse models of lifespan development incorporating an orientation of multiplicity of self-states, and elements of gender, sexuality, culture and race
  3. identify the impact of early attachment on adult development, and subsequent relationships
