Chicago Center for Psychoanalysis CCP Two-Year Certificate Program

The Chicago Center for Psychoanalysis is looking forward to the upcoming 2014/15 academic year. One of CCP’s central goals is to invite all interested professionals to join our vibrant community by becoming an active learner in our different programs. We are pleased to remind all who may be interested that the application period for CCP Two-Year Certificate Program in Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy is now in progress, ending August 30th, 2014.

We welcome applications from current and former fellows of CCP, early career professionals, those who are contemplating psychoanalytic training in the future, and those working professionals or academics who simply want to expand and deepen their backgrounds in psychoanalytically-oriented theory and practice.

DESCRIPTION OF THE PROGRAM: The program has two tracks: a clinical track and an academic track for those who wish to enrich their knowledge in psychoanalytic theory but who are not practicing clinicians. Students in the academic track will follow the same program as students in the clinical track, although their focus will be determined through discussion with their individual consultants.

The academic year will be divided into three 11-week periods. Classes are held in downtown Chicago and or downtown Evanston on Monday evenings from 7-9pm.

Components of the Program Weekly Seminars

First Year

Fall: Issues in Psychoanalytic Theory and Therapy

Winter: Psychoanalytic Theories of Development: Implications for the Clinical Work

Spring: New Directions in Psychoanalytic Theory: Self-Psychology and Relational Theories of Treatment

Second Year

Fall: Freud for Clinicians

Winter: Primary Process: Dreams and Creativity

Spring: The Integration of Theory and Practice

Six quarters of clinical case conference will be integrated with the six didactic seminars.

Individual Consultation

Individual consultation or discussion meetings will be scheduled weekly with a CCP faculty member.

Six Public Lectures Throughout the Academic Year

The CCP Lecture Series, Fridays@CCP and Sundays@CCP, features outstanding psychoanalysts from across the U.S., from abroad, as well as from the Chicago analytic community. Further information will be available in September on the CCP website.

Final Project

A final written project, a case report (clinical track students), a theoretical paper relevant to psychoanalysis (academic track students), or an alternative project of substantive relevance to psychoanalytic psychotherapy, will be required for graduation. All students will have the opportunity to discuss individual subject matter with a mentor.


$2,400 per year, $800 per quarter, due before the beginning of each quarter.

Financial Assistance

CCP believes that cost should not be a prohibiting factor in obtaining psychoanalytically-oriented training. For this reason, limited work-study scholarship opportunities are available for those who have an interest in participating in CCP’s Two-Year Certificate Program but do not have the resources to do so. For those applying for one of our work-study positions, we ask that you include a statement explaining your financial situation with your application. For those already enrolled in the program, we require quarterly updates on your financial situation for continued financial assistance.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist, LCPC, or LCSW sought in Batavia, IL

Established and busy private practice located on the Fox River in Batavia, Illinois is seeking a Licensed Clinical Psychologist, LCPC, or LCSW. We would also consider a pre-licensure candidate.

At Prairie Psychotherapy Services we believe “All good psychotherapy has these elements in common: the presence of empathy; a process for self-examination; tools for healing and change; and support during the process of implementing new ways of perceiving, behaving, and relating. Whether the focus of therapy is stabilizing a crisis marriage, navigating a family problem, facing an addiction, healing previous trauma, or controlling anxiety or depression symptoms, clients should expect empathic, respectful support in increasing their self-understanding and in changing their lives. People seek therapy because they need understanding, help, and relief–the relief that comes from immediate attention to their suffering, and the relief that comes from beginning to hope for a more peaceful, joyful life.” – Dr. Amy MacDonald

The therapists at Prairie Psychotherapy Services offer assessment and treatment for adults, adolescents, children, families and couples.
We have extensive experience in treating:
– Depression
– Anxiety
– Addictive Disorders
