Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy Training Program

ICP offers qualified licensed clinicians a 20-week program devoted to training in the concepts and practices of contemporary psychoanalytic psychology. The Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy Training Program (PPT) offers uniquely case centered material that will focus on modern psychoanalytic theory and its clinical practice.

A second year of the PPT is open to students who have completed the first year of the program. Seminars are designed by the PPT Committee with input from incoming second year students.


PPT seminars examine fundamental principles of contemporary psychoanalysis including Self-Psychology, Object -Relations, Relational, Intersubjective-Systems, Specificity and Complexity theories. Case material will be presented to illustrate how the therapist can utilize a particular theoretical perspective in clinical practice.

Seminars are led by a facilitator who is either an ICP Member or an advanced candidate at the Institute.

Small Group Consultation

Program participants join a weekly consultation group (dates to be determined) led by an experienced ICP training analyst.

The consultation group allows students to deepen their understanding of contemporary psychoanalytic theories through the integration of clinical work and educational material.

Enrollment Fees

  1. One time application fee (non-refundable): $50.00
