Prerequisites (for future units)
This unit is a prerequisite for:
A framework of the fundamental concepts of dynamic psychology will be provided starting from Freudian metapsychology. Evolutionary models, theories of motivation, attachment perspective, and infant research will be presented. We will also present some aspects of the psychodynamic clinic from the perspective of intervention in diadic, family and parenting contexts.
Present the stages of emotional-affective development, analysing the main theoretical frameworks of the discipline, their historical development and the models currently most accredited. Identify the links with psychopathological pictures, the concept of normality and the many forms of individual adaptation. Connect theoretical frameworks with taxonomies, individual functioning and a sense of subjective well- being.
The teaching will consist of a combination of traditional lectures with slides and video, as well as presentations and discussion of clinical cases
