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
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
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 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.
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.
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.
APPLICATION DEADLINE IS AUGUST 30,2014
