The Institute of Contemporary Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis (ICP+P) created a series of conferences, the Relational Perspective Institute (RPI) over four weekends in 2009-2010. This project was inspired by the recognition of a fundamental paradigm shift in psychoanalysis and psychodynamic psychotherapy from Freud’s drive structure theories toward a set of perspectives that place human relationships and relational needs at the center of psychoanalytic theory and practice. In the original RPI, the foundations of relational theory and practice were described by five luminary thinkers from the relational field.
Beginning this fall, we will build on our earlier project and once again bring leading voices from the contemporary relational movement to ICP+P for a series of four virtual conferences over the course of the 2021-2022 year. The speakers selected for this second Relational Perspectives Institute (RPI II) are individually and collectively moving the relational paradigm forward and shaping the contemporary theories and clinical practice of psychoanalysis and psychodynamic psychotherapy.
This second RPI will present an expanding and generative set of relational perspectives as well as describe the ways these ideas and clinical approaches can assist us in helping people during this very challenging time in human history. As with other ICP+P offerings and in line with our mission, RPI II will include a focus on inclusion and openness to issues of race, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation and identity, class, and ableism.
RPI II consists of a series of four remote conferences over 2021-2022. The institute will enhance the participant’s theoretical and clinical understanding of contemporary relational psychoanalysis in a setting of open dialogue and respect. Lectures, clinical presentations and small group discussions will provide the participants with the opportunity to integrate relational concepts into their clinical understanding and into their clinical practices.
Conference Series Co-chairs: Roger J. Segalla, Jr., Ph.D. and William Pinney, Ph.D.
This conference is appropriate for clinicians at all levels of experience and offers 20 CEs for all 4 conferences.
