Workshop at Shutters Details & Registration

Jessica Benjamin, PhD, has been part of the relational psychoanalytic movement from its inception, and is known for her integration of clinical psychoanalytic and development theory with social thought, particularly feminist theory. She is best known as the author of The Bonds of Love (1988), which is translated into many languages, as well as Like Subjects, Love Objects (1995); and Shadow of the Other (1998). Her new book Beyond Doer and Done To: Recognition Theory, Intersubjectivity and the Third has recently been published by Routledge. Her (2004) article “Beyond Doer and Done To: An Intersubjective View of Thirdness” is the second-most frequently cited article on PEPweb.

Dr. Benjamin is a supervising faculty member of the New York University Postdoctoral Psychology program in Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis and at the Stephen Mitchell Center for Relational Studies, where she is a founder and board member and in private practice in New York City.

In 2015 she was awarded the Hans Kilian prize at the University of the Ruhr in Bochum, Germany, the largest European award for work that joins psychoanalysis with the humanities. From 2004-2010 she initiated and directed “The Acknowledgement Project” together with Dr. Eyad el Sarraj of Gaza involving Israeli and Palestinian mental health practitioners and international dialogue leaders. She also participated in editing and narrating the video film ( on the Israeli-Palestinian Combatants for Peace, an organization committed to opposing the Occupation and creating cooperation non-violently to establish conditions for peace. Her current interest in the psychoanalytic theory of relational repair joins with the question of social acknowledgment in relation to reparations in the United States.
