Howard Covitz is a self-described middle-aged supervising psychoanalyst and a licensed psychologist in both Pennsylvania and Virginia, but only after studying religion and mathematics. While having neither a high school degree nor a baccalaureate, Dr. Covitz did doctoral work in both Mathematics and Clinical Psychology. He is a professor of Mathematics Department at Temple University and was Director of the Institute for Psychoanalytic Psychotherapies (IPP) from the late 1980's through 2000. He sits on a variety of psychoanalytic boards, including the National Association for the Advancement of Psychoanalysis. Dr. Covitz' work is based on an object relations oriented treatment approach which he outlined in his 1997 volume Oedipal Paradigms in Collision: A Centennial Emendation of a Piece of Freudian Canon, which was nominated for the 1998 Gradiva Book of the Year Award. Dr. Covitz delivered the keynote address at the 2nd annual Jungian Society Conference, August 2003.
