The 2024 Summer Educational Intensive: Master Clinicians of the Interpersonal Perspective

Monday-Friday, June 17th-21st, 2024

9:30AM-12:30PM daily

We are pleased to announce the return of the Institute’s unique annual program: the Summer Educational Intensive is being offered in person, at the Institute, in June, 2024.



Five master clinicians offer their perspectives on Interpersonal-Relational psychoanalysis. The weeklong program offers three intensive hours each morning of clinical presentation, live supervision and group discussion. Each master clinician will illustrate technique and theory as applied to clinical material.  This will be followed by a Q and A with the audience.

All classes are in person at the Institute. An introduction to the Institute with a Welcome Breakfast will be part of the first morning’s schedule, and coffee & light refreshment are available daily. Afternoons and evenings are free for students to explore New York City, enjoy activities, or for locals to return to their work settings.

15 CEs are available for this program. For information about CE Credits click here.
