Find out what Columbia trainees and faculty think most distinguishes the Center as a place to learn, teach, and grow.
The Columbia Psychoanalytic Center was the first training institute accredited by the American Psychoanalytic Association to offer a training program in Child and Adolescent Psychoanalysis that does not require previous of simultaneous training in adult psychoanalysis. We created this program, called Accelerated Child Psychoanalysis, to address the interests of clinicians who wish to devote their clinical work principally to the treatment of children and who might find unnecessary to pursue intensive training in adult psychoanalysis.
