Increase your Knowledge. Advance your Skills.

This innovative two-year course of study enhances the knowledge and skills of clinicians. Clinical and theoretical seminars promote the acquisition of a comprehensive foundation in psychoanalytic ideas. The clinical and theoretical seminars are taught by our accomplished faculty. A certificate is awarded upon successful completion of the Program.

Admission Requirements

The program is open to all applicants who hold a current license to practice and to interns who practice under the auspices of a licensed supervisor. Psychiatric residents must have completed their first post- graduate year of training. For the highly qualified non-licensed applicant, occasional exceptions are made on a case by case basis. Two personal interviews are required prior to acceptance in the Program.

Classes meet from mid-September to mid- June on Wednesday evenings with consultative group sessions beginning at 5:30 PM and seminars from 7 PM-10 PM.

Case consultative sessions: Students present clinical material to the group which is led by an experienced analyst. The sessions are for heuristic purposes, rather than ongoing supervision. For an additional fee, students can augment the group consultation with individual consultation.

Seminar curriculum: The first year examines the essential aspects of psychoanalytic psychotherapy and the spectrum of psychiatric illnesses. The second year provides a comprehensive survey of human development and the evolution of psychoanalytic theory including all the contemporary theories.

This Program does not discriminate on the basis of age, race, color, gender, marital status, religion, sexual orientation, or national or ethnic origin in the administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship and loan programs, and other school-administered programs.
