Clinical Training

Our clinical programs are designed to enrich and strengthen each student’s development as a clinician and psychoanalytic psychotherapist and/or psychoanalyst. This is best achieved when clinicians have a solid foundation in psychoanalytic theory and technique, receive close clinical supervision, and can develop a high degree of self-awareness that deepens their sensitivity to the client-therapist relationship. Clinical training is therefore a comprehensive tri-partite training experience that includes:

  • Coursework in theory and technique
  • Supervised clinical work
  • Personal treatment
   

Academic Training

Psychoanalytic training is also invaluable to individuals in non-clinical, academic fields who wish to incorporate the theory into their work. Individuals from various educational and professional backgrounds are eligible to apply for training as a matriculated academic student in the psychoanalytic psychotherapy and psychoanalysis training programs. Non-clinical academic students undertake personal psychoanalysis or psychoanalytic psychotherapy and participate in the required curriculum.
