From the first day Morry attended Saturday Dialogues, sitting in my living room, Morry became a key member of COR’s developing future. He was my “go to” man when I wanted to try out a new program idea, a sage voice of experience for young therapists just starting their practices, and a wise teacher when asked about difficult clinical decisions for those long in practice. Morry was everything COR needed as it began to grow from a study group to the Center for Object Relations, now numbering some 150 members. There is no way to overstate his value to our organization. There is no way to over-express our gratitude for his humble contribution. Morry was the best!
