Words That Touch / Words That Transform:
The What, When, and How of Interpretation

Meets by phone on four Fridays, January 20 - April 14, 2017

 
Beginning January 20, the PPCP program is pleased to offer Series 3 of our four meeting seminar series. This series will address contemporary formulations of interpretation. The seminar will meet on four Fridays, January 20 through April 14, 2017 via a video link from 9-11am ET.

Interpretation as a clinical action has become the cornerstone of psychodynamic psychotherapy. It is a specialized form of assigning meaning to experience. The capacity for and the activity of interpretation are intrinsic to human mental life.

For over 150 years and especially since the publication of James Strachey's 1934 paper, "The nature of the therapeutic action of psychoanalysis", the aim of psychodynamic interpretation has been to make the unconscious conscious. The hallmark of the therapeutic work has been dream interpretation.

Many contemporary clinicians, especially those with an interest in working with patients with traumatic experiences, have the additional aim of first establishing or restoring a patient's capacity to wish and to dream. In work with traumatized patients the first clinical task is to facilitate a patient's development of the capacity for psychic survival. The next task is to facilitate the patient's development beyond concerns of psychic survival into a capacity for genuine aliveness—a capacity for dreaming.

In three classes and one case discussion meeting this seminar will explore three contemporary formulations of interpretation as a form of clinical action designed to establish or to restore the capacity to wish and to dream. Interpretations are now designed as words that touch the heart and soul and transform the patient.

There are few functioning child psychodynamic and child analytic programs of quality for a therapist who wants training in work with children. The International Psychotherapy Institute now offers a combined 2-year, 2-hours-per-week, distance learning child training program on Friday afternoons with 4-6 immersion weekends featuring international teachers. The program components include: Seminars on theory, clinical case conferences, IPI's signature GAM groups (small discussion groups using the Group Affective Model); clinical consultation; and personal treatment. Clinical consultation and personal analysis or psychotherapy may be conducted partly using telephone or secure videoconference. Trainees who specialize in child psychotherapy and trainees who specialize in child analysis study together in a combined curriculum and also separately in specialized tracks. 

In the first year, a combined curriculum. In one shared weekly hour, child psychotherapy trainees and child analytic candidates study together in combined theory courses in childhood psychopathology and wellness, theory of child development, attachment theory, the basic psychoanalytic situation, techniques to establish and maintain a relationship with a child, provisioning the office setting, theory of play, using play creatively, transference, countertransference, relating to parents, families, co-workers, agencies, teachers and pediatricians, sensitivity to diversity, ethics, the use and impact of technology, and research techniques. 
In the other weekly hour, child psychotherapy and child analysis trainees study in separate tracks for their respective clinical case conferences and GAM groups. 

In the second year, a separate curriculum. In both hours, child psychotherapy and child analysis trainees study separately in specialized psychotherapy or psychoanalysis theory and advanced technique courses, clinical case conferences, and GAM groups. 

An Object Relations Foundation:
The proposed readings reflect classical and contemporary psychoanalytic literature, including theories of A. Freud, Klein, Winnicott, Bornstein, Solnit, Abrams, the Sandlers, Tustin, Bick, Gaddini, Harris, Fraiberg, the Tysons, Laufer, Pine; the research of Stern, Emde, Fonagy, Target, Coates, and Salomonsson; and the contemporary work of Ferro, Gilmore, the Novicks, Lemma, Yanof, O'Shaugnessy, Pick, Chused, and the Scharffs.

The GAM group is a special feature of this IPI child psychotherapy and child analytic training program.  In the Group Affective Model for teaching and learning child analytic psychotherapy and child analysis, trainees meet in GAM groups with the task of integrating their emotional responses to the challenging primitive material encountered in work with young children and adolescents, confronting diversity with sensitivity, studying the social unconscious of the group, developing an ethical analytic stance, and securing their identity as either child analysts or child psychotherapists.

APSaA:
3 cases (1 preschool, 1 latency, 1 adolescent not all the same gender) at 4 times a week showing analytic process beyond the opening phase, one of them through termination if possible, each case a minimum of 50 hours of consultation with a recognized child analyst. APSaA is currently reviewing this and the requirements may change slightly. 


Total hours of consultation 150 (minimum) 200 (minimum) if not already an adult analyst. Total hours analyzing cases 500 hours minimum.

APsaA strongly recommends restarting 4 times a week training analysis when analyzing children.

IPI offers a seminar in infant observation taught by IPI faculty, which meets by conference call, linking students across the United States and Central America.  The seminar draws on the technique of Esther Bick and the IPI Group Affective Model (GAM) for study and learning.  Esther Bick developed infant observation seminars as part of the child psychotherapy-training program at the Tavistock Clinic in London in the late 1940’s.  Since then such training has been required in many psychoanalytic and psychotherapy programs around the world. 

The upcoming seminar starts January 10th, 2016 and will continue through July.  This seminar will meet by conference call 2-3 Fridays per month from 1:00pm-3:00pm EST.

Course Objectives

The purpose of this training at IPI is several fold:

  • to watch a baby and a mother develop individually and in relationship to one another
  • to learn by direct observation about the baby’s and mother’s primitive anxieties and defenses as the baby comes to life outside the protective womb
  • to allow oneself, as observer, to better understand the primitive anxieties of our adult and child patients and ourselves in relation to these patients
  • and finally to develop an analytic way of thinking by being in the receptive role of taking in affective experience for study

Educational Components

The seminar meets by Conference Call two to three times per month for a total of 22 two-hour sessions

To receive the Certificate, students will complete two years of Infant Observation seminars.

Students are expected to:

  • directly observe an infant and its caregivers 1 hour per week*
  • write up process notes for each observation
  • participate in the small group discussion
*The first seminars are spent in guiding the student as to how to find a baby and family to observe and how to establish a contract and working alliance with the family.


Prerequsites

The pre-requisite for the seminar is at least one year of the IPI Core Program or equivalent.

Clinical Consultants in Psychotherapy

face 67430

Distance Learning Program in
Clinical Consultants in Psychotherapy

Beginning October 2017

IPI Is announcing a new educational program for licensed mental health professionals who are consulting to colleagues in their practice of dynamic psychotherapy or who wish to prepare to be clinical consultants. The colleagues to whom they consult will usually be independently functioning private practitioners who might or might not be enrolled in a training program.  The IPI program provides education in consultation skills.

The program is organized according to the domains of competency suggested by the APA (American Psychological Association) adapted for competence to consult on psychotherapy cases. The course will consist of a series of reading discussion seminars on the basics of consultation to psychotherapy practice and group discussions of participant vignettes from in-person, in-state consultations they have participated in as trainees or consultants (or being in supervision for those who do not yet have a consulting role). The program will be taught using IPI’s unique learning method, the Group Affective Model, facilitating the integration of intellectual and emotional experiences.

Program Design

The Clinical Consultants in Psychotherapy Program is a 30-hour course, to be completed in 7 months, by two-way video link. This is a distance learning course available from each participant’s own home or office. The course begins with a two-day intensive seminar consisting of 10 hours of didactic seminars and 2 hours of group affective experience (GAM group). The two-day intensive seminar is followed by twice monthly seminars, of 1.5 hours each, over 6 months, via phone or video link. Each 1.5 hour seminar will consist of 45 minutes of didactic learning and discussion of assigned readings, followed by 45 minutes of review and discussion of participant consultation vignettes, as described above. 

Educational Objectives

Participants will develop enhanced consultation skills. Participants will:

  • Develop skills and self-evaluate consultant competence in performing the professional role of clinical psychotherapy consultant.
  • Develop consultant metacompetence in knowing the limits of your knowledge and skills.
  • Develop self-monitoring skills of ongoing performance as a consultant to psychotherapy clinicians.
Learning Objectives will be written in relation to competencies addressed in each competency domain as outlined in the American Psychological Association “Guidelines for Clinical Supervision in Health Service Psychology.”

Program Components

All participants will attend a two-day intensive seminar by two-way secure video link. Participants will need the necessary equipment to attend via the video link. The intensive conference will include participation in a Group Affective Model group experience.

Following the intensive two-day seminar, participants will attend 12 meetings, ( 2 meetings per month, for 6 months, for 1.5 hours each) of seminar via phone or video link. The seminar will include readings, didactic discussions and case discussions.

Program Components:

  • Two-day distance learning intensive seminar
    • 6 hours didactic (4 x 1.5 hours)
    • 4 hours GAM (4 x 1 hour)
    • 2 hours closing dialouge at the end of each day (2 x 1 hour)
    • Total CE hours for the 2 day conference = 12 hours
  • Teleconference Seminars
    • 2 meetings per month for 6 months (1.5 hours each)
    • Total of 18 CE hours 
  • Total CE hours for the program = 30 hours

Applicant Requirements

  • Participants will need the necessary equipment to attend via the video link.
  • Participants will need IPI Object Relations training (CORE program)*
  • Participants will need to submit an Application (google form application) (PDF application)

The course is offered to IPI faculty, graduates, fellows and graduates of courses offered by chapters, and will apply to consultation to psychotherapists in private practice and in agency settings. Each participant is responsible for researching and verifying the scope of their practice license and applying their skills within the regulations of their relevant licensing body. Registrants in this course will earn CEUs in relation to stated objectives and a certificate of completion.

*: The course MAY be offered to those who have not trained at IPI if they have preparation in object relations theory and practice equivalent to that provided by the CORE program.

IPI does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, ethnicity, nationality, religion, age, gender, sexual preference or physical handicap. 

Tuition

Regular tuition: $850 

Discounted tuition is available for IPI National Faculty members.

To pay your tuition online click here.

Continuing Education Credit

Continuing Education Credit will be provided for each segment of the course. Total of 30 CE hours for the program.

Certificate

Certificate: Participants are awarded a certificate of completion for the 30-hour course.

The course can be completed in 7 months.

CAVEATS

The program certificate is not a license to supervise or consult. The course cannot meet the requirements of all states since those vary state to state and it is up to the participant to research the requirements of their own state or states. We are not training supervisors of record for unlicensed clinicians nor is any IPI registrant who takes the course authorized to meet the licensure requirement for an unlicensed clinician.

While this course might be helpful to psychoanalysts it is not a qualifying course for psychoanalytic case consultation.
