This workshop will describe the most recent advances in our understanding of bipolar and other mood disorders
in clinical work both in the United States and Israel. Bipolar conditions were among the very first to be understood
from an object relations perspective and provided much of the other clinical data that formed the basis of the theory.

Workshop leaders will explore the latest important advances in the biochemical, genetic and neuroscience research,
and how they relate to Object Relations theory.
