The Advanced Clinical Fellowship
This twenty-week fellowship offers a combination of didactic and group supervision in intersubjective, feminist and queer theories and their clinical applications. We will explore the history of intersubjective theory and its many clinical themes such as: the transformative nature of love, foundational relational attachments and manifestations of desire. These themes will be more richly understood with the addition of feminist and queer theory. These theories will help us better understand the implications of systemic oppression in the clinical encounter, as well as highlighting avenues for more authentic articulations of the subjective experience.
Each week, students will be offered pairings of theoretical papers from interdisciplinary perspectives. These papers will be the springboard for our discussions of case material presented by fellows. We will discuss the paradoxes, relational dilemmas, and uncertainties that manifest in the relationship between therapist and client when considered through an intersubjective lens. We will utilize feminist reckonings of self and other to explore the personal and political manifestations of transference and counter-tranference, moments of impasse, and the sometimes beautiful and often messy moments of in-betweenness that arise in our work.
