III.  Contents of the Theoretical Part of the Course in modules (morning classes)

Module I – May 2014

Subject A) Winnicott´s paradigm
The objective in this module is to present a general view of Winnicott´s psychoanalysis within the framework of contemporary theory of science based on Kuhn´s theory of paradigms, with emphasis on the revolutionary character of Winnicott´s contribution.

 Subject B) Winnicott´s theory of maturational processes
 This topic shall address the central part of Winnicott´s paradigm: his theory of the emotional and personal maturational processes, used by him as the frame of reference for his maturational psychopathology, clinical practices and prevention.

 

Module II – November 2014

Subject: Winnicott´s psychopathology I: psychoses and psycho-somatic disorders

This module shall be dedicated to the study of reactions and defenses against interruptions of the maturational process such as psychoses related to primitive agonies, including personality splits, schizoid states and psycho-somatic disorders, originating from environmental falilurs that take place in the very early phases of maturation (approximately in the first year, before or during the I AM stage).

 

Module III – May 2015

Subject: Winnicott´s psychopathology II: other maturational disorders

In this module shall be examined disorders which have their point of origin in the maturational process following the acquisition of the unit status (at the I AM stage), in particular depression, anti-social tendency, neuroses, maturational problems in adolescence and in adult social life.

Module IV – November 2015

Subject: Winnicott´s clinical practice

A) Summary of Winnicott´s views on clinical phenomena (Class 1)

Under this topic shall be studied 1) different modalities of transference, 2) analyst´s counter-transference (attitudes, roles, responses and behavior), 3) clinical phenomena emerging during the treatment (psychotic breakdown, regression to dependence etc.), 4) the course and the end of the treatment.

B) Definition of the aims and nature of the psychoanalytic treatment (Class 2)

C) Winnicott´s main new clinical procedures (Classes 3-5)
Topics to be studied include procedures inherited from traditional psychoanalysis and modified by Winnicott, in particular treatment by verbalization and interpretation, as well as modalities of treatment that are specific to Winnicott´s paradigm proper, such as playing roles and management in individual settings. Application of these procedures outside psychoanalysis proper shall also be considered, in particular in child psychiatry (therapeutic consultations and squiggle games, on demand therapy) and in extended settings, such as families, hospitals, hostels, etc., where different kinds of environmental provision are offered.

Module V – May 2016

Subject: Winnicott´s clinical cases I

In this module shall be offered the study of M. Little’s analysis with Winnicott presented by M. Little herself in a case report, as well as some other case reports written by Winnicott as supporting evidence or as illustrations of his paradigm.

 Class 1: The case of Margaret Little (Little, M. L. 1990: Psychotic Anxieties and Containment. London: Aronson.)

Class 2: The young woman who killed a tortoise in her dream (Winnicott, The maturational processes and the facilitating environment, chap. 23)

Class 3: Liza (Winnicott, 1989: Psycho-analytic explorations, chap. 40)
Class 4: Mark (Winnicott, 1971: Therapeutic consultations. London: The Hogarth Press, case 15)

Module VI – November 2016

Subject: Winnicott´s clinical cases II
