About Our Training Programs
WCSPP offers two adult training programs: a two-year training experience in psychodynamic psychotherapy and also an intensive course of study and immersion into contemporary psychoanalysis. Each of these certificate programs provides excellent hands-on education and training in the theory and practice of psychotherapy and contemporary psychoanalysis. The programs are designed to enhance a clinician’s understanding of psychodynamic and psychoanalytic thinking in their work place and/or private practice. The training hones the candidate’s existing capacities to “see”, feel, and understand the multiple levels of meaningful human interaction in the consulting room.
Growing empirical evidence is clear that “deep therapeutic work”–like the kind offered at WCSPP–promotes change and growth in patients that is more substantial and longer lasting than in short-term, singularly focused or behavioral treatments.
The Foundations of Psychodynamic Psychotherapy Training Program is a two-year program designed to provide candidates with a solid theoretical and clinical base in psychoanalytic psychotherapy. A three-pronged approach is used, which includes coursework, personal therapy, and consultation/supervision with a number of master clinicians who are a part of the WCSPP Faculty. Candidates will learn how to better recognize aspects of their work that are occurring outside the conscious awareness of the patient (or even the clinician) and how to use this expanded understanding in a dynamic, transformative way.
The Advanced Psychoanalytic Training Program is open to graduates of the Foundations Program and/or an equivalent program at another training institute. The Advanced course is an additional three-year program (beyond the Foundations program) that provides further in-depth training in psychoanalysis. The training consists of the concurrent participation in didactic course work, supervised clinical work, and a personal psychoanalysis. Such an intense immersion enables the candidate to transform experientially and deeply understand the empirical basis of theoretical formulations and to develop analytic skill in the conceptualization and execution of psychoanalytic work.
Aviva Gitlin, Psy.D. is the chair of the curriculum committee and on the faculty of WCSPP. She is Past President of the WCSPP Psychoanalytic Association. She is an Adjunct Faculty and Supervisor at the Ferkauf School of Psychology at Yeshiva University. Dr. Gitlin has Certificates in Psychoanalysis and Psychotherapy from WCSPP.
