Intrapsychic Humanism Society 2-day seminar

****** COURSE OFFERING – 10 CEUs ******

The Board of Directors of the Intrapsychic Humanism Society would like to invite faculty and students to a Two-Day Course reviewing the principles of Intrapsychic Humanism. This course will be held on Saturday, September 27th, and Sunday, September 28th, 2014, offering 10 CEUs to psychologists, social workers, counselors, and teachers. Members of the board will offer a ten hour seminar providing an overall review of the theory of intrapsychic humanism. Intrapsychic humanism, developed by Drs. Martha Heineman Pieper and William J. Pieper, is a general psychology and philosophy of mind that describes a unified theory of normal development, psychopathology, and treatment. Intrapsychic humanism provides an understanding of human development that gives parents the potential to raise children who can attain a conflict-free, pleasurable, self-regulated experience of self, even in a world of inescapable external loss. The theory also provides a therapeutic approach, Inner Humanism ®, whereby an individual with troubling psychic pain can achieve an unconflicted, pleasurable inner well-being. The Pieper’s work was published in a seminal academic book for professionals called Intrapsychic Humanism: An Introduction to a Comprehensive Psychology and Philosophy of Mind (Falcon II Press, 1990), also known as the “Blue Book” in reference to the blue color of the book cover. This seminar will follow the chapter structure of the book. Key points in the book will be presented in everyday language with the goal of providing an introductory understanding for those new to the theory and deepening the insight of those familiar with the book. We look forward to September 27 & 28th when we will explore the ideas of intrapsychic humanism together.

When Saturday, September 27th, 1-5:30 pm and Sunday, September 28th, 10 am-3:30 pm

Where Loyola University Law School Kasbeer Hall 25 East Pearson, 15th floor Chicago, IL 60611

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.

Clarkson University seeks Executive Director of Counseling & Health

Clarkson University seeks an experienced mental health clinician and leader to direct the counseling and student health services at its highly residential campus in Upstate New York. Clarkson University is the third smallest nationally ranked research university and the institution of choice for more than 3,400 enterprising, high-ability undergraduate and graduate students. Through its 50+ programs, Clarkson educates remarkably effective engineers, scientists, health professionals, business people, and creative leaders who easily defy convention and engage—“What’s next.” Clarkson does this by creating an exceptionally demanding, boundary-spanning experience in an entrepreneurial community known for its core values, technology intensive resources, and appreciation of the Adirondack Park that lies just beyond its doorstep. Located in the college town of Potsdam, NY with three other universities nearby, Clarkson community members enjoy a constantly changing social and intellectual quality of life largely influenced by proximity to the north slope of the Adirondacks; easy access to Lake Placid as well as two major cities—Ottawa and Montreal, Canada; and a high level of regional camaraderie that encourages innovative partnerships in small business development, arts, tourism, recreation, agriculture, and green energy.

The Position
Reporting directly to the Vice President for University Outreach & Student Affairs, the Executive Director of Counseling & Health is responsible for the overall leadership, vision, and management of the Student Counseling & Health Center in support of the overall personal growth, development, and wellness of Clarkson students, while assuring the Center is in step with current national best practices. The Executive Director will have primary management responsibility for the Counseling Services, maintain a clinical practice serving students directly, coordinate with external mental health providers, and facilitate educational programs and outreach to the campus community. Administrative responsibilities include strategic planning; data collection and outcomes assessment; budget management; staff development, supervision, and evaluation; and oversight of the Canton-Potsdam Hospital contract for health services. Direct reports include three licensed mental health counselors, an administrative assistant, and the Director of Health Services who manages the day-to-day operations of the health services side of the Center. Building and maintaining collaborative working relationships between the Center and the Office of the Dean of Students, Student Success Center, other administrative offices, faculty, staff, and students is an ongoing priority for the Executive Director of Counseling & Health.

The successful candidate will possess a master’s degree in counseling psychology, clinical social work, psychiatric-mental health nursing, or related field and be eligible to obtain New York licensure. Demonstrated managerial leadership and significant clinical experience are required. Experience working in a higher education environment and a track record of innovation in addressing rising counseling and mental health needs of a college-aged population strongly preferred. Cultural competency, a collaborative and adaptable working style, effective communication and presentation skills, commitment to uphold professional ethical standards, as well as an ability to design and lead educational programs and community outreach will also be important considerations in the selection of the Director of Counseling & Health.
