Upcoming "Why Psychoanalysis?"
A personal psychoanalysis can be an extraordinary learning experience for any mental health professional. It not only offers unique insights into your own internal world, but is also invaluable for exploring your reactions to work with patients.
All candidates in our psychoanalytic training program must undergo their own personal analyses with a Training and Supervising Analyst. Training and Supervising Analysts are specially certified to provide psychoanalytic treatment and supervision to analysts in training. If you are considering entering psychoanalytic training at some point in the future, we strongly advise you to consider beginning treatment with a member of this group.
If you are uncertain about whether or not you may someday wish to obtain formal analytic training, entering your own personal psychoanalysis can often inform that decision by enabling you to eperience what is for many the central element of their training.
The Columbia Psychoanalytic Center offers free consultations to all residents in psychiatry and interns in psychology.
