CALL FOR PAPERS: DEADLINE OCTOBER 1 2017
For four days February 1-4, 2018, IPI and the IPA’s Committee on Family and Couple Psychoanalysis are planning a conference on psychoanalytic family and couple therapy, to be held in Rockville, MD, near Washington, DC, and co-sponsored by the International Psychotherapy Institute.
In this conference, we will explore variations in arrangements for therapy, such as combined individual and couple or family treatments, arrangements of the setting with families of adolescents or young children, other concurrent family and couple interventions, mother-infant therapy, home settings for therapy, or therapy for conditions such as psychosis or addiction. We will have a variety of presentations – papers, case presentations and discussions, with a focus on clinical cases and vignettes. The conference is jointly organized by IPI and the IPA’s Committee on Family and Couple Psychoanalysis and will be held in IPI’s conference hotel in the suburban Washington, DC area.
We invite submissions from faculty, candidates, students and colleagues for consideration for presentation, as well as volunteers of colleagues willing to act as discussants. If you wish to submit a presentation but are unsure about whether it is appropriate, we invite you to write us and we would be glad to discuss it with you. Selection for presentation will require registration for the full conference.

You’ll get a print out about the book we want that I’ve taken from the Amazon list. It will have the author, title and the name of the publisher. It’s usually just the first page of the Amazon report.
- Go to Amazon. Key in the author and title to check if the book is still out of print. It may have been reprinted or my data might be wrong.
- Now you have to be a Sherlock Holmes. Track down the email address of the author. Enter his name on Google and add “email”. You may have to explore the items that come up under his name. You may have to go back to the Amazon report for it sometimes has the author’s academic position. You may need to call the author. Often they have a clinical practice. Briefly explain to him (or his secretary) the project and ask for his email address. If the author is deceased you may have to enter his name on Google and add “obituary”. This will give you information on the next of kin–wife or children and where they live. Then you can follow up with them.
- In your email to the author you will ask him to write to his publisher to ask for the return of rights since the book appears to be out of print.
This is a commitment of at least several hours a month.

What are IPI’s admissions criteria?
What is Object Relations Therapy?
But being dependent on another person means that we have to deal with frustration. Taking in and coping with frustrating experience sets up personality patterns that should mature at each developmental challenge. Sometimes, though, we get stuck. Psychotherapy reaches in to unlock the logjams left over from early years, and open the personality to new learning and better relationships.
Please see Object Realtions Theory for more information.
