Affective Learning and the Small Group
The Affective Learning Model is an educational format derived from the theoretical principles of Object Relations. Faculty, candidates, fellows, students and weekend attendees learn together, from didactic material and experience, to integrate theory and technique, cognitive and affective elements, and intrapsychic and interpersonal dimensions.
IPI’s affective learning groups represent a core component of the weekend learning. Each participant meets in a consistent group, twice daily and once on Sunday morning during the weekend conference. The affective learning process provides an essential vehicle for learning at IPI, giving participants an effective way to integrate their intellectual and emotional responses to the material at individual and group levels, and to apply this learning to their clinical work. Participants value the small group as a place that fosters their development as clinicians, by giving the learner a close-in opportunity to discuss, argue, and wrestle with concepts and emotional responses to the material.
