Upcoming "Why Psychoanalysis?"
The Rado Seminars (RAPS Groups) are a program of postgraduate education for graduated psychoanalysts and approved advanced candidates of the Columbia Psychoanalytic Center. Graduates of other institutes and disciplines have participated in the past and may apply to join.
Seminar groups are organized by theoretical and clinical subjects, and new seminars are formed whenever there is indication of interest in a topic. Among the many groups currently meeting are Female Sexuality (Vivian Pender, M.D., Chair), Fundamentals of Psychoanalysis (Robert Glick, M.D., Chair), and Psychoanalytic Perspectives on the Bible (Samuel Pauker, M.D., Chair). A complete list of RAPS groups is available on the website of the Association for Psychoanalytic Medicine.
The Psychoanalytic Center considers participation in these study groups to be an important contribution to the work of the Center, and participation partially fulfills the requirements for appointment as a collaborating psychoanalyst at the Center.
If you are interested in joining any of these groups, please contact Peter Bookstein, M.D., firstname.lastname@example.org, 212-665-8674.
Columbia Adult and Child Psychoanalysis program graduates are eligible to take courses from the elective track on a limited basis. Those interested should contact the Curriculum Committee Co-Chair, Ruth Graver, M.D., email@example.com.
