Ellen Rees, M.D.

The Columbia Center for Psychoanalytic Training and Research is part of the Department of Psychiatry of the Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons. It is an institute of the American Psychoanalytic Association. The Columbia Center was founded with the intention of embedding psychoanalysis in a broad community of ideas through the Center's connection to the university and the medical school. Columbia has had a long-standing commitment to research. Our candidates are medical doctors specializing in psychiatry, psychologists with doctorates in clinical psychology, and doctors of psychology.

We train our candidates to think clinically by using multiple psychoanalytic models, the ego-psychological, object relational, and self-psychological models. We are beginning to introduce relational concepts and attachment theory. My analytic orientation can be described as a mix of these models.

I will be addressing the panels questions from the point of view of curriculum development at psychoanalytic institutes, but not necessarily in the order in which they were offered.

Question 2

Psychoanalytic knowledge has been growing and changing. Our theories and concepts have been stretching, then fragmenting into new models. This wealth of knowledge and diversity of theory offers an opportunity and a challenge for our field and for psychoanalytic educators. In the absence of a unifying model, a careful and constrained pluralistic perspective has allowed us to encompass the heterogeneity of our ideas.
