The Boston Change Process Study Group (BCPSG), which was formed in 1995, collectively produced several seminal papers culminating in the book Change in Psychotheraphy: A Unifying Paradigm (W.W. Norton, 2010). The Boston Change Process Study Group (BCPSG) is a small group of practicing analysts, developmentalists, and analytic theorist who believed that knowledge of recent developmental studies and dynamic systems theory can be used to understand the model change processes in psychodynamic therapeutic interaction. The individual specialties of each member bring the collective knowledge of infancy researchers and the experience of practicing psychoanalysts towards the study of the process of change as it occurs in normal development and psychoanalytic therapies.
The collection contains 288 audio cassette recordings of the group’s discussions on research and publications. Audio recordings also include presentations and seminars hosted or presented by members of the BCPSG. The collection contains three series: BCPSG Discussion “Playpen”, Infant Research Workshop, and Conferences and Seminars.
For amplifying information, reference the Oral History interview conducted with Dr. Jeremy P. Nahum regarding the BCPSG and the collection he donated. Please note that BPSI Archives also holds two photographs of the BCPSG playpen group from the meetings in 2005 and 2006 as well as an audio recording of the Meet the Author event with Daniel Stern from November 16, 2010, in the BPSI Event Recordings collection.
