Psychotherapy Institute arranges meetings open to public attendance, rather than mental and medical health professionals, to increase their knowledge. These meetings are held with mental health related topics such as psychotherapy, identity and identity develeopment, personality types, disorders of the self and adolesence. These meetings have dual purpose; first is to overcome their doubts about taking psychological support and to make them familiar with field professionals; and second is to teach the right, healthy, and functional coping strategies they can use in their everyday lives. Since 1986, by the cooperation of the public and private institutions, these events are being held in the form of conferences and conversation meetings. Within this framework, social responsibility trainings are organized for companies, municipalities, and organizations affiliated to the district governor.
Dr. Masterson pioneered the developmental self and object relations approach to the psychotherapy of the Personality Disorders through clinical research. He is the founding father of The Society of Adolescent Psychiatry and past president of its New York Chapter.
The body of Dr. Masterson's work is represented in the books he has written, many of which have been translated into several languages, including early work in the field of the real self, which represents a breakthrough in treatment of the borderline and narcissistic disorders.
J. F. Masterson, who we have lost in 2010, supported the Psychotherapy Institute with close interest, providing the necessary training and supervision support to our organization's therapists. He has pioneered the formation of a core group of therapists in our Institute.
In these series of congresses, "Abandonment Depression Theory" developed by the great theoretician J.F. Masterson in personality disorders is discussed. These international congresses host theoretical and case presentations of the clinicians and researchers working with the Masterson's Approach. International Masterson's Days, organized annually, have become a school where many therapists develop their knowledge and skills.

We know the importance of language very well in learning the Psychoanalytic Psychotherapies and Object Relations. The trainings and discussions with lecturers speaking foreign languages imply the significance of language use, choice of words, sentence structures, and tone and emphasis of voice. Right at this point, the workshops with our valuable teacher Vamik Volkan present a marvelous picture, as we observe in the feedbacks of our trainees and workshop participants. We experience being taught by someone, who is one of us, who feels and thinks like us, in a clear, understandable and facilitating way. While we listen to him, we interpret what we hear, and the knowledge almost streams into our hearts and minds even before we realize it. We spend efforts to make these experiential training days traditional under the name of Vamik Volkan's Days. We express our gratitude to our teacher Vamik Volkan for his supports to our Institute.

Several psychotherapy practices have been developed under the title of Brief Dynamic Psychotherapies.Time-Limited Dynamic Psychotherapy (TLDP) is one of these brief dynamic psychotherapies. Developed by Prof. Dr. Hanna Levenson, TLDP is an integrative psychotherapy approach blending affect regulation, relational therapy, countertransference analysis, and object relations within the principle of here-and- now. The keystones of this approach are the patient selection criteria, limited time of 20-25 sessions, the principle of here-and-now, gaining a new understanding and experience in the session, and a belief that life itself is the best therapist.Within the framework of our institutional cooperation with Levenson Institute for Training, two organizations are involved inmutual training support The Levenson Institute for Training has been training a core group of therapists under the roof of the Psychotherapy Institute for the aim of introducing and expanding the practice of TLDP in Turkey, and to educate TLDP-oriented psychotherapists. These training programs are enriched and enhanced with new participations every year.
Les Greenberg, Ph.D. is a full Professor of Psychology at York University in Toronto, Ontario. He is the Director of the York University Psychotherapy Research Center and one of the world's leading authorities on working with emotions in psychotherapy. Dr. Greenberg is among the primary developers of emotion focused therapy (EFT) for individuals andfor couples. Dr. Greenberg received the 2004 Distinguished Research Career Award of the International Society for Psychotherapy Research, of which he was a past President. He recently was awarded the Canadian Psychological Association Professional Award for distinguished contribution to psychology as a profession.
From a historical perspective, the theoretical progress of psychotherapy that started with Freud to continue with the drive-conflict theory, ego psychology, object relations and cognitive theories has arrived at a point today where we understand that emotions constitute the basis for everything. Without understanding the emotional schemes, which are much deeper- rooted than cognitive schemes, it cannot be possible to achieve in-depth change, but we can only reach change on the surface. The Emotion-Focused Therapy approach of distinguished theoretician and practitioner Leslie Greenberg, who has been laboring in this theoretical framework for thirty years, offers a wide range of applicability, including couple and family therapies.ln the recent neurobiological researches and studies, it has been understood that the origins of internalized object relations and psychopathologies are rooted in affect dysregulation. It has been understood that therapeutic approaches that fail to reach the emotional source and to ensure affect regulation cannot provide long-term benefits.
Prof. Dr. Greenberg is a great pioneer cited by many works in the field. We are honored to learn the Emotion-Focused Therapy that he has developed from him at first hand. Through our friendly relationships with Leslie Greenberg, it is our aim to provide trainer's training to a core group of therapists in Emotion-Focused Therapy. We are proud to introduce Emotion-Focused Psychotherapy through our organizations and conferences in our country.
Dr. Allan Schore is on the clinical faculty of the Department of Psychiatry and Biobehavioral Sciences, UCLA David Geffen School of Medicine, and at the UCLA Center for Culture, Brain, and Development. He is author of three seminal volumes, Affect Regulation and the Origin of the Self, Affect Dysregulation and Disorders of the Self and Affect Regulation and the Repair of the Self, as well as numerous articles and chapters.
His Regulation Theory, grounded in developmental neuroscience and developmental psychoanalysis, focuses on the origin, psychopathogenesis, and psychotherapeutic treatment of the early forming subjective implicit self. His contributions appear in multiple disciplines, including developmental neuroscience, psychiatry, psychoanalysis, developmental psychology, attachment theory, trauma studies, behavioral biology, clinical psychology, and clinical social work.
The studies, which have been attempted to be defined as isolated and independent, but actually refer to the same realm in essence, are fortunately addressed from a multidisciplinary perspective in recent years, seeking common answers to common questions. Right at this point, Dr. Schore's studies constitute the basis for producing verifiable and measurable values that make it possible to gather all discussions together and evaluate them from a scientific angle. We express our thanks to Dr. Allan Schore for his support to the Psychotherapy Institute, and for his training efforts. We believe that our cooperation will continue in an enhanced fashion.

Magnavita and his team indicate that the way to understand the human goes through understanding the concept of an interrelated system comprising from the microsystems to mesosystems. We are honored by his collaboration with the Psychotherapy Institute. Magnavita made us proud by offering us to take part in Turkey foot of a wide-scale project he has been carrying out.
