Thank you for your understanding,

Center for Object Relations

This coming February, the Center for Object Relations and the Seattle School for Theology and Psychology will welcome psychoanalyst Avedis Panajian, PhD ABPP back to Seattle for a day of spirited exploration in the realm of psychoanalysis and psychotherapy. This year, Dr. Panajian will explore the meaning and applications of what he considers to be some of the foundational psychoanalytic concepts that have guided his practice over four decades of clinical work. These include but are not limited to analytic space, unconscious processes, psychic energy, the distinction between affects and feelings, signal anxiety, splitting and implosion, psychic structures, object-relations, and the meaning and transformation of trauma.

Dr. Panajian will devote specific attention to aspects of therapists’ participation in their work with patients and their emotional engagement with their patient and work, including his understanding of analytic listening. As always, Dr. Panajian will bring his emotional sensitivity and humor to give life to the human heart of psychoanalytic theory and praxis. We hope you can join us for what are sure to be two engaging and enlivening days.
