Adult Psychoanalysis Training

The PCC’s Adult Psychoanalysis Training program teaches the practice of psychoanalysis through an extensive study of theories of mind and of the interplay between these theories and the clinical situation.

Classroom Study Requirements

The didactic portion of the training involves in-class hours divided among courses in several categories, some focused on the conceptual basis of the psychoanalytic understanding of mind and others more on the application of psychoanalytic perspectives in the clinical setting. Seminars are meant to be an active learning experience with the discussion of clinical experience relevant to the papers read. Candidates are encouraged to present examples from their work and to present to a continuous case conference when possible.
