In this ten-week course, we will explore introductory concepts in psychoanalytic psychotherapy. Topics we will address include:
Readings will include both foundational texts and contemporary scholarship, and will be attentive to the sociocultural dimensions of unconscious life.
Participants in this course will be invited to evaluate and critique these theories as well as share clinical material to apply, elaborate, and critically examine key ideas.

Course fees are split between instructors and the Center. The fees to Center support operating costs for current and future programming. At this time, our non-teaching staff are volunteers.
Due to the size of the courses (8 participants), your presence is important so we hope that you make every effort to attend class. And, life happens.
However, there will be no recordings of sessions. We want to encourage participants to feel at ease to share personal and/or clinical material.
We want to offer a space for Asian / Asian American clinicians to be, to learn, to question, to create, and to support one another. And, from this space, our hope is that we can have more nuanced conversations and in depth explorations of the intersection of Asian subjectivities and psychoanalysis.
Our one time events are open to all. And, in the future, we might offer courses for non-Asian clinicians.
If you need to withdraw from enrollment, full refund will be given to up to 2 weeks prior to class start minus a processing fee of $25. If withdrawn with less than 2 weeks of start of class, you will be charged a $50 processing fee.
No refunds once classes begin or for missed classes. Extenuating circumstances will be considered.
In the event that the Center has to cancel a course, full refund will be provided.
Barring extenuating circumstances, participants in TAACP’s courses agree to attend all sessions, arriving on time for the entire duration of class.
As classes are online, ensure that you are in a quiet and private space that allows for both audio and video to be on.
Classes are small to encourage dialogue. We encourage you to “take” your share of talking time and listening time.
Keep other participants’ experience and clinical information confidential.
All involved with TAACP (staff, volunteers, faculty, participants, guests) are expected to interact with each other with respect.
Issues that arise will be first discussed / addressed with the immediate folks involved and can be progressed to include faculty and/or TAACP’s administration.
