Upcoming "Why Psychoanalysis?"
At the Columbia Psychoanalytic Center, a candidate’s eligibility to begin cases and to advance from year to year is determined by the Progression Committee according to clearly outlined progression criteria. These criteria are designed to help both faculty and candidates best evaluate the candidate’s work in both instructional seminars and clinical supervision.
A detailed explanation of the Center's progression criteria can be found in the Progression Manual.

For more information, contact your progression advisor.
Supervisors are asked to fill out a Supervisory Assessment Form for each of their supervisees twice a year (April and November). These should be discussed with and shown to the supervisee. (link provided for candidate information).
These assessments are based on the Learning Objectives for Clinical Psychoanalysis. The assessments contain one section for each of the learning objectives. Please note that they are divided by Learning Phase (1st year, mid-level, senior). These phase appropriate levels will help you to guide your assessment to the goals expected for your supervisee’s level of training. The supervisory assessment should be geared to the supervisee’s progress. You can refer to the Midphase Criteria Guide to help assess the level of the patient’s progress.
