ORI is Announcing Memorial Scholarships

 

Nov 2012 (Note from the Executive Director of the ORI) -

November is the month when we celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday season. Thanksgiving is a special time, when we stop for a moment, at least, to say "Thank You" to everyone we love and cherish. This is the time when we are also reflecting on our losses. We remember and we pledge to never forget, and to always connect mentally and spiritually to those we've lost. I am connecting today with and remembering two of our greatest supporters and scientific faculty members – Dr. Joyce McDougal and Dr. Jeffrey Seinfeld. Although they can no longer indulge us with lively and life-transforming presentations and discussions, their presence in life of the ORI Community will continue – through our work, incorporating the vast knowledge we’ve acquired from these two deep object relations thinkers, teachers, and great souls. 

A year ago, ORI's Board of Directors proposed an initiative which would help us to commemorate Dr. McDougal and Dr. Seinfeld and to establish the scholarships in their names. This will allow young mental health practitioners in need to continue their education in psychoanalysis, psychotherapy, and object relations clinical theory and technique. If any of you would like to contribute to this scholarship fund, you will be able to interview and select its recipients, as well as  be able to receive a report on this person's progress and achievements. Your contribution will be tax-deductible. You also can establish your own scholarship to commemorate someone dear to your heart or a cause that you are passionate about. If you are not able to support the whole year of training, but willing to support someone who would like to take a certificate course or attend a conference - your tax-deductible donation will be acknowledged and appreciated.

For more information about ORI and our different on-going projects and educational events, please visit this web site often, sign up for our listserv announcements, or contact the administrator at Admin@ORINYC.org or call 646-522-1056.
