Freud’s Case Studies: The Rat Man

Brooklyn , NY June 30 - July 15 | 7:00 PM

Join the Brooklyn Institute for Social Research for “Freud’s Case Studies: The Rat Man,” a four-week course hosted in the A Public Space offices. In this course, students will carefully study Freud’s published case history of the so-called “Rat Man,” which illuminates his theories of the unconscious, of obsessional neurosis, and of psychoanalytic treatment. Supplemental readings will be suggested, and no prior knowledge of Freud is necessary. This will be the first in a series of classes that focus upon Freud’s most influential clinical case studies. The course will meet on Tuesdays at 7:00PM for four weeks, starting on June 30. For more information and registration, visit the Brooklyn Institute’s website.
