BA Psychosocial and Psychoanalytic Studies

How do we become who we are? Is emotion as strong a driver as reason? What explains our stranger compulsions and desires? Does all behaviour have meaning - even when it appears to be irrational?

Psychoanalysis is an interdisciplinary field of studies and clinical practices, gathering over 100 years of theorization and clinical experience in framing its ideas and concepts about the mind, emotions, social relations, motivation, psychopathology and psychotherapy.

Understanding human experience means looking not only at how we act and relate, but crucially also requires looking inside at what is going on below the surface. In this course you look at the psychological factors that influence our emotions, behaviours and relationships and shape our everyday lives. To understand these factors you will learn psychodynamic concepts, applying them to individuals, relationships and organisations and of course, you will study the pioneering works of Freud, Jung and Lacan.

Here are some of the questions we might cover. Why do we fall in love with certain kinds of people but struggle to relate to others? Why do we get stuck, or lose direction in life? What explains our stranger compulsions and desires? Why are some people prone to psychological illness while others seem to thrive in adversity?

Topics include:

  • Psychoanalytic and psychosocial approaches
  • Child, adolescent and adult development
  • Trauma and recovery: A psychodynamic approach
  • Understanding individuals, groups and organisations
  • Popular Film, Literature and Television: A Psychoanalytic Approach (Freud and Jung)
  • Freud: Mind, Culture and Society
  • Where the Wild Things Are: Literature, Childhood, Psychoanalysis
  • Current debates in depth psychology
  • Psychoanalysis and the child
