The seminar is intended to provide students with a lens through which they can consider case conceptualization and treatment issues applicable to various clinical problems, settings, and populations. It offers students a personal opportunity to bring dimension and understanding to their clinical work as they explore, in depth, the application of Object Relations theory to clinical practice.
