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.
