Information for Clinicians


The goal of education is not to increase knowledge but to create possibilities for a child to invent and discover, to create men who are capable of doing new things.  Jean Piaget

Study Groups for clinicians

mother and children

Infant Mental Health Research

These study groups will be a safe and non-competitive environment to learn Attachment, Regulation, Infant Mental Health, Psychobiology and the other theoretical perspectives that integrate with these cutting edge approaches to psychotherapy.

The Study groups will be:

  1. Monthly – for those who are off-island or who may prefer a monthly format for our meetings
  2. Bi-Weekly or Weekly – for those who prefer a regular weekly or bi-weekly supervision group

A. Reading focus – This type of study group is for those clinicians who want to focus on the literature and theory first; there will be more reading, paced to the wishes of the group. Case presentation will be a regular aspect of the group but will highlight the reading. I will present cases and the participants will present cases that illustrate the material we are reading.

B. Case discussion focus – In this study group case discussion is the primary focus of our time with reading material offered as a follow up or support when the group would like that. This group is a good choice for those who have demanding cases and/or would like to have access to support on a regular basis for clinical work including diagnosis, treatment options and therapeutic technique. There will likely be a blending of theoretical perspectives in this group. We will discuss individual, couples, family and other combinations of clinical cases, depending on the needs of the participants. The objective here will be to support the clinician in finding techniques that work for the client-therapist dyad, that move the development forward and that result in a satisfied client.

I am available for individual supervision or shared supervision (2 or more people).

I also am able to offer supervision via teleconference or phone if you need that.
