The psychodynamic tradition describes anxiety as a meaningful experience rather than just a “symptom.” The tradition has a rich history of describing different kinds of anxiety, including how anxieties evolve developmentally and how they make sense. Different kinds of anxieties arise for different reasons and play important roles in the life of the psyche. As a person matures emotionally, some kinds of anxieties become more relevant than others. The types of anxiety a person experiences, and how that person's attempts to control that anxiety, are some of the most important things there are to know about a psychotherapy client. This seminar will explore different kinds of anxieties, their dynamic roots in meaningful emotional experience, and strategies for addressing each kind of anxiety.
At the completion of this continuing education program, participants will be able to:
1) Describe characteristics of different types of anxiety as described in the psychodynamic literature, including annihilation anxiety, abandonment anxiety, and moral anxiety;
2) Identify and critique clinical and culture-based lay perspectives on anxiety which ignore subjective experience of anxiety in favor of discrete disease categories;
3) Develop strategies for addressing and resolving anxiety states in psychotherapy.
