About this course

Are you interested in psychology and want to learn more about it? Then this Psychology course in Canterbury is for you.

Psychoanalysis which is a set of theories and therapeutic techniques related to the study of the unconscious mind, which together form a method of treatment for mental-health disorders. This introduction to psychoanalysis will begin with a discussion of the Freudian psychoanalytic concepts of: the unconscious; repression; transference; parapraxes (Freudian slips); the Oedipus complex, the castration complex; introjection and projection; the compulsion to repeat – among others. This will be followed by the post-Freudian paediatric psychoanalytic work of Klein and of Winnicott and the feminist critiques of Freudian psychoanalysis of Choderow, Mitchell and Benjamin.
