Event description

Description

Theory and Practice of Relational Psychoanalytic Integration

“If all you have is a hammer, then everything looks like a nail” (Maslow, 1962). Experienced clinicians know that no single approach can adequately address the complexity of personality and behavioral change, and that the ability to integrate multiple therapy approaches enhances their clinical effectiveness. But how does an analytically-oriented therapist best do this?

This three-session seminar presents Relational Psychanalytic Integration, a model for psychotherapy integration based on the clinically grounding framework of relational psychoanalysis. At the completion of this course, participants will have a coherent theoretical framework that orients them to integrating useful supplementary insights and methods that are nonanalytic, like CBT, into their psychoanalytically-based practice.

We explore the field of psychotherapy integration and the theoretical and pragmatic issues that arise in combining modalities in our work. To inform our thinking, we consider common therapeutic factors shared by multiple approaches. Readings include papers by Bresler, Bucci, Frank, Wachtel and others. Readings are discussed in the context of clinical work.
A three-session sequel to this course, Advanced Clinical Considerations, is offered in the spring to candidates who have completed two or more additional PIP course offerings. Both the introductory and concluding courses are required for the PIP certificate.

Class meetings are held on Mondays, Sept 9, 16, 23, from 1:00 to 2:50.

Tuition is $245

Registration in this seminar is limited. Participants must be licensed, experienced, and conversant with the basic literature and concepts of psychoanalysis. This course is required for NIP’s Certificate in Psychotherapy Integration Program (PIP). Register at Eventbrite for single courses. Applications for the full certificate program in psychotherapy integration can be found online at nipinst.org.
