Welcome to COR Northwest Family Development Center

Center for Object Relations – Northwest Family Development Center was founded in 1994. As a training center for psychoanalytic psychotherapy, our mission is to increase the knowledge and application of British Object Relations theory, integrating this with current developments in psychoanalytic thinking and parent–infant study and research.

We are dedicated to providing quality continuing education and training to psychotherapists and anyone interested in British Object Relations, and welcome you to attend our training programs in adult and child psychotherapy, as well as our community education seminars and professional events.

It is very important to be aware that you may never be satisfied with your analytic career if you feel that you are restricted to what is narrowly called a ‘scientific’ approach. You will have to be able to have a chance of feeling that the interpretation you give is a beautiful one, or that you get a beautiful response from the patient. This aesthetic element of beauty makes a very difficult situation tolerable. —Wilfred Bion, A Seminar Held in Paris
