Psychoanalytic Theory of Perversions and Impulse Disorders

The objective of this course is to familiarize the analytic candidates with the antilogy of perversions in a psychoanalytic context; to define and enumerate them; to describe theories concerning perversion from Freud to the present and to consolidate theory, to discuss diagnosis and treatment, and to help the candidate recognize that “perversion” cuts across all of psychopathology.
