PRESENTER: PAUL C. COOPER, PH.D., LP

This two-hour online workshop will examine the elements and dimensions of the “Wheel” with specific emphasis on the “Six Realms,” which represent various character structures and related behaviors. We will focus our discussion in relation to psychoanalytic concepts and practices with an eye toward personal growth and the therapeutic process and will include an exploration of possible clinical applications.Learning objectives: 

Participants will:
1) Develop a working knowledge of the Buddhist concept of the “Six Realms.”
2) Develop an understanding of the Buddhist concepts of emptiness and dependent-arising and how they interact with the psychoanalytic understanding and use of counter- transference.
3) Understand the clinical use of Buddhist and psychoanalytic intuition.
