Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy Training Program
ICP is offering qualified pre-licensed and licensed clinicians a 20 week program devoted to training in the concepts and practices of contemporary psychoanalytic psychology. Uniquely case centered, the Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy Training Program (PPT) focuses not only on the what of modern psychoanalysis (its theory) but also on the how (its clinical practice). The readings, drawn from eminent contemporary psychoanalytic publications, are limited but very relevant to each case presentation.

The PPT program offers two ten seminar semesters for both licensed and pre-licensed clinicians. Seminars begin with an overview of the history and development of psychoanalysis. This includes a brief introduction to major analytic theories beginning with Freud’s theory of psychoanalysis and ending with Kohut and Self Psychology. Following this introduction the class moves into contemporary psychoanalysis including Relational Theory, Intersubjective Systems Theory, and Complexity Theory. Case material will be presented to illustrate how the therapist can utilize a particular theoretical perspective in clinical practice. The final seminars cover Attachment Theory, Infant Research, and Trauma Theory and how these are integrated into contemporary psychoanalytic psychotherapy with adults. Case material will illustrate this integration. Seminars are led by a facilitator who is either an ICP analyst or an advanced candidate at the Institute. Instructors for each seminar meeting are members of ICP who have special expertise in the topic of that particular seminar. Seminars are taught by instructors from the institute faculty. Assigned readings augment these presentations.
Students will be awarded a certificate in psychoanalytic psychotherapy upon completion of the program.
