Postgraduate and Advanced Certificates

Broaden your expertise with our psychology certificate programs.

The postgraduate programs are designed for professionals who have doctorates or master’s degrees in a mental health profession and are licensed for independent practice. These psychoanalytic training programs provide certificates and advanced training. The postgraduate programs consist of a series of seminars in theory, technique, case conferences and supervised practice.

Psychotherapy training courses are offered in the evening or late afternoons to accommodate working professionals. In addition to our Garden City location, some programs are offered at Adelphi’s Manhattan Center. Personal therapy and supervised practice are basic requirements of these programs. 

We also have advanced certificate programs for students who either have their master’s degree or higher or are concurrently pursuing an M.A. in Psychology.
