The influence of one’s history and hormonal factors on what one perceives as “love” and “intimacy” will be explored from the point of view of both traditional psychoanalytic theory and more recent research uncovering the influence of naturally occurring chemicals of the body on emotions and attachment, both in psychotherapy and in everyday life.
- Learn how body chemistry affects the attraction to another, the experience of “falling in love” and long-term attachment.
- Develop a deeper understanding of the degree to which decision-making, in this case regarding relationships, happens at an unconscious level before one is even aware a decision is to be made.
- Share clinical experience in helping a patient become aware of emotionally/hormonally driven decisions about relationships.
- Feb.7 Review and discuss reading and relate readings to clinical experience.
- Feb. 14 Review and discuss reading while relating to clinical work, review role of hormones in love and the attachment. Relate hormone discussion to clinical experiences.
- Feb. 28 Explore and discuss “love” and attachment as expressed between patient and therapist and between patients in a group. Briefly discuss the above factors as they relate to boundary violations and ethics misconduct.
