|IIORT OBJECTIVES ARE
|To understand the original
theories of object relations: Fairbairn's view of the
personality as a system of parts in dynamic relation,
Klein's concepts of projective/introjective
identification and intrapsychic positions, Winnicott's
study of relationships in the mother-infant dyad, and
Bowlby's attachment theory.
|To integrate the contributions of
Fairbairn, Klein, Bion, Spillius, Joseph, Winnicott,
Balint, Guntrip, Sutherland, Bollas, Ogden, Mitchell, and
other contemporary theorists with personal clinical
experience in small group discussion.
|To understand advances in theory such
as extractive introjection, the autistic- contiguous
position, psychic genera, the dynamic relations of self
and object, new ideas of trauma and regeneration, the
analytic mind, chaos theory, and attachment patterns.
|To apply object relations theory to
technique in individual, family, couple and group
therapy, and in working with institutions.
|To learn to use the therapist's self
-- through understanding transference and
countertransference, listening to the unconscious,
responding interpretively from inside your own
experience, and providing a holding environment.
|To further public understanding of the role of psychotherapy and psychoanalysis in the mental health of individuals, families, and institutions.|
