About the Course:

"The Neuropsychodynamic Treatment of Self-Deficits: Searching for Complementarity"

The Neuropsychodynamic Treatment of Self-Deficits examines from a psychoanalytic perspective the problems that confront patients with neuropsychological impairments. A central thesis of this work is that when patients experience such disruptions in their lives, they feel impelled to seek others who can provide them with the psychological functions to complement those that they are missing. When those efforts are successful, their problems recede to the background. However, if the efforts fail, then a cascade of sequelae ensues, which is when some of them apply for therapy. For therapists, the challenge is to find ways of responding to such patients and to help them deal with their issues at the level of multiple domains of self-experience, rather than at the single level of their intrapsychic dynamics.
