Open Enrollment

Now accepting applications for the weekend in-person program for 2020- 2021  

Due to COVID-19, ICP’s 4 – year Psychoanalytic Training Program beginning September 11th may be conducted on-line on a temporary basis until it is deemed safe to return to meeting in person at our Los Angeles location. All candidates are eligible to earn a Certificate in the Theory & Practice of Psychoanalysis. ICP continues to seek accreditation of its doctoral program, but the outcome of those efforts remains uncertain.

The Institute of Contemporary Psychoanalysis affords candidates the excitement of advances in psychoanalytic thought built on our rich heritage of psychoanalytic theory. Appreciation of our embeddedness in contexts of diversity, culture, and history informs our thinking and teaching. Many of our instructors are widely regarded authorities in the field and contribute regularly to the literature.

As a center for inquiry, clinical training, and research, we embrace the tripartite method training. Immersion in a training analysis infuses coursework with personal meaning and augments engagement in three supervised control cases.

We welcome applicants from a variety of disciplines to take part in this unique exploratory adventure that will increase knowledge, expand self-awareness, and enhance clinical skills.

The Institute of Contemporary psychoanalysis is presently accepting applications for psychoanalytic training. If submitted after July 1st we cannot guarantee they will be processed in time to start that September.

Weekend courses are taught on weekends (Friday – Sunday), six months per academic year.

The program of study consists of:

Personal analysis, Personal analysis, 

3 Psychoanalytic cases completed under supervision, 

4 Years of seminars
