Nadine Obeid

Research Fellow

Nadine Obeid, PhD is a clinical psychologist who is interested in the multiple facets of perception, identity, conflict and its resolution in both her research and clinical work. Her research work has included qualitative and quantitative studies in Lebanon with diverse religious communities, looking at the roles of sacred values and moral worldviews in intergroup cooperation and conflict and at beliefs of gender relations and domestic violence. Her interest in intergroup relations is reciprocally informed by her analytical work in her consulting room. She is currently pursuing a four year postdoctoral psychoanalytical training at The William Alanson White Institute, which emphasizes the roles of interpersonal, social and cultural factors in understanding how people influence and react to one another and how ruptures and repairs are meaningfully negotiated in the treatment dyad. She obtained her MA and PhD in Clinical Psychology from The New School for Social Research, NYC and two BAs in Psychology and in Film Studies from Concordia University, Montreal. She holds Supervising Faculty positions at The New School, Ferkauf Graduate school of Psychology and Lenox Hill Hospital.
