the privilege of a diverse institute

Scholarship Recipient: Veronica Abney

Veronica was drawn to ICP because it was contemporary in it’s approach to psychoanalysis.  “Having initially trained as a clinical social worker, I had studied psychoanalytic psychotherapy from an ego psychological approach,” said Veronica. “I knew I needed the training but had been reluctant before ICP opened. My own psychoanalysis was a motivating factor and allowed me to see that the contemporary theories made for a different experience.“

“Having the scholarships affords ICP the privilege of having a more diverse institute… In addition to helping to diversify the institute, scholarships make training more available to people of color.”

Veronica received a scholarship for tuition at ICP, which encouraged her to take to take the financial risk of training. She found that ICP provides a level of academic freedom not before available in psychoanalytic institutes.

“Getting this training has made a huge difference in my career. I am a more qualified and confident clinician.” 

Veronica is currently a training analyst at ICP. In the past, she has taught classes on trauma and diversity, power, and privilege. She has also served on the Board of Directors for several years and as President of the ICP.
