Celebrating its 20th Anniversary of educating mental health professionals

Welcome to the Object Relations Institute:
A Non-Profit & New York State Chartered Educational Institute

Dear Friends,

This academic year, the Object Relations Institute celebrates its Twentieth Year, and has its very special Annual Conference
on February 26th, 2011. Its topic, “Dialectics of Mortality and Immortality: Time as a Persecutory or Holding Object” is
related to Donald Winnicott’s ideas on potential and transitional space, but now applied to TIME and how our internal object
images (personas) of time effect each of us continuously, moment by moment, day by day, allowing for our fulfillment or self
sabotaging failure. Such phenomena as transitional objects and analyst’s breathing, as well as anti-aging theory and clinical
vignettes, contrasting views, dance metaphors, and performances to highlight the interplay of space - time - internal object
experience – all will complement the original paper presentation, as well as presentations of our three discussants. For more
information, please visit our Annual Conference page.

Our Institute offers

* Certificate programs in Object Relations Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis:

The Object Relations Institute offers certificate programs in psychoanalytic psychotherapy and psychoanalysis with a
special curriculum featuring the teaching of the British and American Object Relations theorists and their clinical applications.
The curriculum stresses preoedipal stage psychopathology contributing to character disorders, and modifications and
elaborations in Freudian theory and technique made by object relations theorists. Object relations theorists have
contributed to deepening our understanding of psychical structures and offer us techniques for dealing with clients
who were thought to be unreachable.

This unique curriculum conducted in small group and class settings provides the candidate with the whole experiential
dimension of learning related to the processing of  "objective countertransference" feelings, associations, and visceral
experiences. These issues are seen as the key to understanding the split off and dissociated aspects of the
psychotherapy or psychoanalytic patient, as the clinician sits in the room with him or her. This experiential study
takes place in supervision groups, which highlight the group process as a medium for the learning personal development
process. In-depth communication between candidates in each class is encouraged in relation to their internal processing
of their clinical work.

* Individual courses & seminars (new in 2011):

* Exposure to the work of advanced clinicians (as instructors, mentors, supervisors, lecturers, and discussants).
   Group and individual clinical mentorship -
