The personal analysis may be conducted by any certified analyst.

Child/Adolescent Psychoanalytic Training Program

The Child/Adolescent Psychoanalytic Training Program is an intensive course of study for those interested in becoming Child/Adolescent Psychoanalysts.  It can be taken concurrently with the Adult Training Program, or a graduate analyst may return at a later time to pursue this additional training. Clinical training requires a mental health practice degree, and Adult Psychoanalytic Training is expected to be undertaken concurrently or previous to this program.
