Foundations of Psychoanalytic Practice in NY (New Courses for Non-Candidates)
Our NY Division is pleased to offer two new Foundations of Psychoanalytic Practice Courses this Fall, Analytic Listening and Concepts, and Infant Observation. They are open to professionals who are interested in deepening their clinical skills and learning more about psychoanalytic training. Applications may be made now for one or both courses.
Training in our Adult Psychoanalysis Program (Tracks A & B), as well as the Child and Adolescent Psychoanalysis Program, involves 4 to 5 years of course instruction, a personal analysis, and analysis conducted under supervision. The Adult Psychoanalysis Programs in New York are offered in two tracks: Track A is for clinicians who have a New York State License in the fields of Psychiatry, Psychology, Social Work, or Nursing (as a Nurse Practitioner); Track B is for applicants who are interested in a certificate of completion in order to qualify to apply to The New York State Department of Education for a License in Psychoanalysis (LP). Applicants for Track B may include Masters-level graduates of Masters and Doctoral programs who have a strong interest in psychoanalysis as well as clinicians who are Licensed Creative Arts Therapists, Licensed Mental Health Counselors, or Licensed Marriage and Family Therapists.
The Adult Psychoanalysis Program in Washington is designed to enable candidates who live in other geographical locations, or who have schedules that preclude taking weekly classes, to train at The Psychoanalytic Training Institute of The Contemporary Freudian Society-DC. Classes meet from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm on 12 Saturdays each academic year. (Please note that this program will not qualify applicants to apply for the LP credential in NY.)
The Anni Bergman Parent-Infant Training Program, designed for the graduate analyst or advanced psychoanalytic candidate, is offered in New York in collaboration with The Institute for Psychoanalytic Training and Research (IPTAR).
For the student interested in Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy, we offer a two-year program involving coursework and supervised counseling or therapy in New York. Applicants must hold a license in New York State such as a PhD, LMSW, LCSW, or be a Psychiatric Nurse Clinician, or hold a license that includes conducting psychotherapy in the scope of practice.
In addition, our one-year Fellowship Programs in New York and Washington are for people who are interested in learning about psychoanalysis and analytic training by attending case conferences and mentoring sessions with our Members.
