Forgotten Classics in Psychoanalysis: The Anatomy of Prejudices

Course Time:     7:00 – 8:30pm
Total CMEs Possible:    6

Course Description: 
Can prejudices be understood psychoanalytically? Are different kinds of people attracted to different kinds of prejudices? Elisabeth Young-Bruehl’s insightful and original 1996 study suggests an approach that distinguishes between different types of prejudices, the people who hold them, the social and political settings that promote them, and the human needs they fulfill. This course will look at the unfortunately all-too pertinent topic of ethnocentrism, homophobia and white supremacy through Young-Bruehl’s understanding of the hysterical, obsessional and narcissistic character.

Learning Objectives: At the end of the course, participants will be able to:

  1. Gain a greater understanding of the relationship between various forms of prejudice and different character styles as outlined by Young-Bruehl
  2. Develop a deeper understanding of how unconscious fears, longings and anxieties form, according to Young-Bruehl, an internal logic at the root of various types of prejudice.
  3. Explore how contemporary social, political and ideological issues in America pertain to the psychological experiences outlined in Young-Bruehl’s study.

Required Book Purchase: The Anatomy of Prejudices, Elisabeth Young-Bruehl, Harvard University Press, 1996.
