Post Graduate Training Program

Minding the Body: Disruptions and Possibilities

Eating, Sex, Surgery, Subversion, and Creativity


Our unique 18-month post graduate training program offers an integration of psychoanalytic, attachment, trauma, and social theories to study the spectrum of embodiment — from secure and cohesive to troubled and dissociated. Through a critical feminist lens, we analyze social hierarchies of race, class, sexual orientation, body size, gendered identities and expressions, and normative notions of health and illness.  We explore the internalization of family and culture in relation to body based symptoms and body modification practices, food and eating, trauma and sexual abuse, aging, reproduction and caregiving, and the indwelling of psyche in soma.  The WTCI model, individual supervision, and an experiential group enrich the clinician’s use of self, including attention to somatic countertransference and to the meeting of bodies/subjectivities in the therapeutic setting. Graduates have the opportunity to become part of a vibrant community of alumnae/i and faculty.

DSCC and DCCC 2014 Campaign Correspondence — Laurens R. Hunt

In 2004 John Kerry lost the chance to be elected our US President because of his statement “I voted for the Iraq War before I voted Against It”.

Republicans always supported a path to earned citizenship.   Now they call this amnesty.   They were for legal immigration before they were against it.

Republicans always supported tax credits and unemployment extensions for the unemployed and low income workers.  They now call these welfare and government handouts.  They were for this financial assistance before they were against it.

Republicans who opposed abortion always considered rape, incest, and the life of the mother as exceptions.  They now consider emergency contraception and birth control to be infanticide.  They supported these measures of health care and individual compassion before they were against them.

Republicans who opposed larger stimulus bills always supported spending on construction, manufacturing, state, and local governments.  Now they consider these appropriations that have led to stable job growth through all of American history to be runaway spending.  They supported funding that has always been proven to grow our economy before they were against it.

Republicans who support the 2nd Amendment always favored mandatory background checks.  They now say that this safety measure means denying the right to own a gun for law abiding citizens.   They were for this safety measure before they were against it.

Republicans need to explain how deporting immigrants who have arrived here legally and properly does not damage our image around the world and add to those who want to kill the American people.

Republicans need to explain how tax credits and unemployment extensions that are known to add to purchasing power for working families and individuals don’t improve economic growth and job creation.

Republicans need to explain to women how demonizing emergency contraception and birth control are a fight in favor of women rather than a war on women as the former Governor of AR Mike Huckabee is now telling them to do.

Republicans need to explain how deteriorated bridges, roads, and tunnels don’t hurt the growth of small businesses and corporations.

Republicans need to explain how background checks are not necessary for gun safety.

Now which party is unable to decide its positions on the issues?
