The One Year Introductory Program in Relational Studies is a two-semester program sponsored by the Stephen A. Mitchell Center for Relational Studies and is the first of its kind. We provide a unique opportunity to learn the fundamentals of relational theory and clinical practice from internationally recognized faculty members who have been in the forefront of relational psychoanalytic thinking. Classes are designed to meet the educational needs of recent postgraduates and those who want to be introduced to the foundations of relational psychotherapy. The program is well suited for individuals who may be considering future analytic training.

The program is open to licensed and license-eligible mental health professionals. Classes will meet on Thursdays, beginning in September, 2018 from 7-9:15 PM at the Stevenson School located at 24 West 74 Street, NYC. A letter of completion will be awarded upon successful participation in the program. Tuition for the academic year is $2600. We are accredited by New York State for CE credits for licensed clinical social workers. Opportunities are available for professional mentoring and low fee clinical consultation with faculty members from the Stephen A. Mitchell Center for Relational Studies. Enrollment is limited.

A complete application consists of the following materials: $25 application fee, CV, an official transcript of all courses of graduate study, and a written statement explaining why you would like to study at the Stephen Mitchell Relational Study Center at this time in your life. Please send all of these materials as one complete packet to both Debbie Waxenberg, PhD at and Lauren Levine, PhD at Once your application has been received, you will be contacted for an interview.
