Welcome, all of you.
First I want to thank Mal, for creating this garden, caring for it with his helpers and sharing it with us today for this graduation ceremony. And to John Tyler who coordinated this event.
For those who are joining me in person today and those joining us on zoom. This is a symbolic moment. Our stepping back into the world of In-person gatherings—eventually reuniting with our patients, our classmates and our students and faculty.
This is a big, a new kind of transition—it comes with some fear and with some joy. And as all first steps. We do it alone but it helps when we can share it with others—which makes me grateful to this community for all we have endured together in this year.
We would not be here today without our amazing faculty, our hard working committee chairs, and those on the board of directors who have supported me in our mission: Namely, to provide the best psychoanalytic education we can in an atmosphere of open dialogue and comparative thought. Always, with the hope that this in-depth psychoanalytic work will help relieve the pain and suffering of our patients—heightened particularly in times of uncertainty and loss.
Throughout the pandemic and quarantine we have strived to fulfill these goals. Although, even more exhausting, I believe, than usual, I am grateful for our perseverance, commitment and strength.
Bobby Knable, a beloved board member for many years, not a clinician herself but having been a dean of students at Tufts University, has said it was at the MIP graduation where the unique meaning of a comparative psychoanalytic education came through. So, with that idea in mind, we will begin our 2020-2021 graduation. And, let a MIP education speak for itself.
