Classes are conducted live via Zoom for clinicians located outside New York City. Instructors will provide details and readings in advance of their courses. Classes combines theory–with a focus on contemporary self psychology, infant research and intersubjective systems theory–with clinical case material. In all classes, case presentations are welcome. Students may present their supervisory and teaching situations as well as clinical cases. Please note, IPSS will provide instruction and consultation about the clinical process, but will not provide supervision itself.

Tuition for this One-Year Distance Learning program is $1,800.00 (per person) for 24 classes.
