Advanced Clinical Seminar



Anthony Bass, Ph.D., Director

Please note: Our class for 2020-2021 has been filled. We are not accepting additional applications. Please check out our Seminar Series for additional educational opportunities.

The Advanced Clinical Seminar focuses on the application of clinical theory to therapeutic work in a variety of settings, including clinics, counseling centers, schools, hospitals and others. Our approach offers the opportunity for participants to present their own work, as well as to consider and participate in discussions about the work of others. Readings are assigned on a weekly basis, chosen to illustrate effective ways of working, and to illuminate the work under discussion. The combination of case presentation with attention to the application of clinical theory is designed to deepen participantsí grasp of theory and sharpen participants' therapeutic skills in a supportive atmosphere, as well as to allow participants to gain experience in thinking about and consulting on the work of others.

The seminar is open to those who have completed the one-year Introductory Program in Relational Studies. Instructors are faculty members of the Stephen Mitchell Relational Study Center. Seminar sessions run weekly on Thursdays, 7-9p EST, from September through May. Tuition is $2000.00.

The Stephen Mitchell Relational Study Center, LLC is recognized by the New York State Education Department's State Board for Social Work as an approved provider of continuing education for licensed social workers #SW-0261.
