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
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 matriculated academic students in the psychoanalysis training program. Non-clinical academic students undertake personal psychoanalysis or psychoanalytic psychotherapy and participate in the required curriculum.
