CONTINUING EDUCATION COURSES
These are 12-hour intensive seminars designed for mental health professionals who wish to enhance their clinical skills.
The course provides participants with opportunities to increase their knowledge and expertise through weekly readings and discussions. Clinical material will be presented by participants and the instructor.
RACE, CLASS, AND CULTURE THROUGH A PSYCHOANALYTIC LENS.
This course will consider race, social class, and culture as elements in the psychotherapeutic relationship. We will consider the nature of these social categories from a psychoanalytic perspective, and how they play out between patient and therapist in public sector clinics as well as in private practice.
12 sessions 12 CEUs
RELATIONAL CHILD PSYCHOTHERAPY
will have both a theoretical and a practical, clinical focus. We will first consider the history and development of child therapy, looking at how concepts of transference /countertransference and play have evolved in the child therapy literature. Clinical examples from participants and the instructor will show the practical relevance and applicability of these concepts in day-to-day work with children. Issues raised by work with parents, teachers and other professionals will be addressed from a psychoanalytic/systemic perspective.
six 2-hour sessions 12CEUs
A forum for reading and discussion of selected articles from the contemporary psychoanalytically oriented literature.

PSYCHOANALYSIS IN INTERNATIONAL CULTURAL CONTEXT
This class will feature readings from a variety of psychoanalytic communities around the world, from India to Iran, Japan, Latin America, Italy, Spain, and beyond. Discussion will focus on what we can learn about psychoanalysis and psychotherapy, and ourselves, when we consider how the field shows up in radically different cultural contexts.
12 sessions, 12CEUs
ADOLESCENT THERAPY (CO-INSTRUCTOR: JILLIAN STILE, PH.D.)
Adolescent therapy, like adolescents themselves, require us to “think different” from the way we are accustomed to think about work with adults and children. Adolescence itself has a number of sub-stages, and culturally diverse manifestations, that the clinician needs to keep in mind. We will consider some of the literature that has grappled with the unique and perplexing issues of adolescence and adolescent therapy.
12 sessions, 12CEUs
The seminars take place at Dr. Altman’s office on the Upper Westside of Manhattan, New York City.
The fee for each seminar is $900.
