Faculty from New York University’s postdoctoral program in psychotherapy and psychoanalysis are available for comment on “In Treatment,” HBO’s nine-week series that follows the progress of a therapist (Gabriel Byrne) and his four patients. The show, which airs five nights a week, premieres Jan. 28.

This show will likely raise many questions in the public’s mind regarding how therapists work: Is this really what therapist’s would do for patients like these? Are the therapist’s behaviors ethical? Do therapists really fall in love with their patients? How do they handle it when they do? Are these the techniques that most therapists would use when counseling individuals with these kinds of problems?

Reporters interested in speaking to any of the below faculty should contact James Devitt, NYU’s Office of Public Affairs, at 212.998.6808 or james.devitt@nyu.edu.

The program, established in 1961, is an interdisciplinary program within NYU’s Graduate School of Arts and Science. With more than 600 graduates, NYU’s postdoctoral program is the largest psychoanalytic training program in the country. For more, go to: http://www.nyu.edu/fas/program/postdoctoral/
