Please consider participating in our Seminar Series.

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.

This seminar is open to any who have completed our one-year Introductory Program in Relational Studies and/or Relational Theory in Clinical Practice. Instructors are faculty members of the Stephen Mitchell Relational Study Center. Seminar sessions run weekly on Thursdays, 7-9p EST, from September through May.

For more information, please contact Jody Davies, PhD.
