ENROLLMENT

CERTIFICATE PROGRAM ENROLLMENT REQUIREMENTS

Applicants must be licensed mental health professionals with an interest in conducting ongoing psychodynamic treatments and building their self-analytic capacity. Legal responsibility for the treatments discussed in the context of this program remains with the individual participant. Proof of malpractice coverage is required.

Self analytic capacity is essential for psychotherapists, thus the program requires participants to be in a personal psychoanalysis or psychodynamically oriented psychotherapy at a frequency of at least once per week concurrent with their attendance in the program.

On-going Psychodynamic Psychotherapy Supervision with an experienced psychoanalyst or psychoanalytically-oriented psychotherapist is required at a frequency of at least once per week during the period of enrollment in the program.  Trainees must be treating at least one on-going psychoanalytic psychotherapy case (at a minimum frequency of once per week), to be presented in supervision, in order to meet the Supervision requirement of the program.

Tuition

Tuition for the class beginning Fall 2016 is $2100 per year.

Tuition can be paid in full by the first day of the Fall trimester or as three payments of $700 each due the first day of each trimester.
