Course contents :  
This course proposes a in-depth presentation of the projective tests, in particular the Thematic Aperception Test (TAT), which remains aneffective tool for clinical evaluations in the area of psychodynamic psychopathology. The first part of the course will present the TAT and the psychoanalytic analysis method necessary for interpreting the test. This method of analysis and interpretation is based on the works of Vica Shentoub and his successors and should help students to put in practice the theoretical concepts developed in the course "Psychodynalic psychopathology I". During the second part of the course, students actually analyse tests to improve their interpretative skills.
