Psychoanalysis and Psychotherapy

Comprehensive study with psychoanalysis and psychotherapy training.

The Four-Year Postgraduate Program in Psychoanalysis and Psychotherapy offers candidates the opportunity to acquire the didactic and clinical experience to become practitioners of psychoanalytic psychotherapy and psychoanalysis.  

Courses provide a comprehensive and in-depth study of classical psychoanalysis, British and American object relations, self-psychology, intersubjectivity, and contemporary relational and interpersonal psychoanalytic approaches to treatment.  Theory courses are complimented by case seminars that focus on the therapeutic techniques of each theoretical orientation.  In addition, courses are offered on contemporary psychoanalytic topics, including gender and sexuality, perversions, trauma, and dissociative phenomena.    

Candidates integrate psychoanalytic theory with their clinical experience and increase their self-understanding and professional growth through personal analysis. Many training analysts are available to work with candidates at reduced fees.
