Four Year Full Certificate Training Program in Object Relations Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy & Object Relations Psychoanalysis

Download Applications HERE

This Program’s unique curriculum features the supervision groups where the group process is used as a learning medium.
The experiential dimension of psychoanalytic learning is introduced here, and it includes processing of “objective countertransference” feelings, associations, and visceral experiences. This program was re-structured in 2010-2011 academic year, to accommodate the applicants who wish to obtain the full-certificate psychoanalytic training at their own pace.

First and second year of this program each includes two mandatory classes (one dedicated to clinical theory, and another one - to the group supervision process, Analyst as Instrument) within each of three 10-week trimesters/ year. In year three and four, there are additional two courses per trimester (6 courses per year, for years 3 and 4), which are required to complete before graduation.

Courses offered in the first two years of this Certificate Program are the same as the classes offered in Two-Year (Advanced) Certificate Program. Those candidates who graduated from our Two-Year Certificate Program can get full credit for their two years of study if they enroll in the Four-Year Full Certificate Program.

Each course (class) can be taken also as a separate certificate course, with or without the group supervision class.

Each course of clinical theory and the group supervision earns  12.5 hrs of post-graduate CE/ psychoanalytic training certificate.

Elective courses are offered at all levels of training.

Please note that these are just some requirements for graduation.

Other requirements include: * Individual Supervision of 35hrs/ year minimum - until the control case is presented to and approved by the Training Committee; * 3-times per week (minimum 2-times a week, as per approval of the Training Committee) Training Analysis with an approved object relations analyst; and * Completion/ presentation of a Control Case.

Tuition and Fees:

Registration fee (for the whole Certificate Program) is $65. If courses are taken separately, the registration fee is $25/ course.

Tuition for each mandatory 10-week class/course (Clinical Theory and Group Supervision) is $450.

Tuition for each 10-week trimester (2 classes/ trimester) is $900.

Tuition for each full year: Training Year 1 and 2 (three trimesters, 2 classes each) -$2,700. Training Year 3 and after require additional classes taken (min 1 class/week/ semester - for those with prior training; otherwise 2 classes/week/ semester), and the tuition for each additional class is $450/ semester.

Fee (sliding scale) for individual supervision (mandatory for all candidates in Full Psychoanalytic Training Program, and encouraged for all candidates in other certificate programs) is $65/ hr (minimum 35 hrs per academic year is required, until graduation. First year requirement is 30 hrs of individual supervision). Additional individual supervision (on a sliding scale fee) is available, as per candidate's request.

Fee for training analysis sessions is flexible and a subject of an agreement between an analyst and a candidate.
