Couples Therapy Training

couples training - two butterflies


The Couples Therapy Training Program is a one-year course of study intended for mental health practitioners who recognize the complexities and responsibilities of doing effective couples work. The program integrates contemporary psychoanalytic thinking with systems theory from a practice-oriented, clinical perspective. Meeting one evening a week, students derive benefit from the small seminar settings and often become a cohesive peer group.

In addition to this classroom experience, the WCSPP community offers a uniquely welcoming and supportive collegial atmosphere where students can expand and advance their interests. Graduates often enjoy enduring personal connections and professional opportunities as a result of their training experience. Many return to enroll in WCSPP’s additional programs: psychoanalytic training, adult psychotherapy, child/adolescent psychotherapy training, and the variety of collegial committees.
