An Invitation from the Psychoanalytic Training Program
Our training program, designed to engage our candidates in an educational process that brings alive the excitement, creativity, and diversity of a contemporary relational, self psychological psychoanalytic approach, is fostered by the study of psychoanalytic thought and therapeutic action through the examination of various theoretical models and their historical context. Through intensive study of each candidate’s clinical work in individual and peer supervision and class discussion along with personal analytic work, we facilitate a process of self-discovery as candidates become immersed in their clinical analytic work and, over time, forge their analytic identities. We strive to create an educational milieu that encourages open dialogue, critical thinking, playing with ideas and scholarship through writing. Our candidates and graduates consistently report an enhanced capacity to engage more fully and stay closer to the experience of their patients in their in-depth analytic work. In addition many graduates have become leaders in the psychoanalytic community at large. Please contact Elizabeth Carr, Chair of Admissions, at 202-822-8371 or firstname.lastname@example.org . We would like to know of your interest.
Applications for the Fall 2018 class are now being accepted.
