Upcoming "Why Psychoanalysis?"
A program of the Child Division, Columbia University Center for Psychoanalytic Training and Research
This program is a one-year curriculum designed for psychologists working or planning to work in educational settings. Basic components of the program include the following:
In addition, those CPSP students who desire a clinical supervisory experience can apply to the CAPP bi-monthly Supervisory Group; this small group, which meets on alternate Wednesday evenings, is led by Columbia psychoanalysts and provides participants with the opportunity to present their own clinical vignettes and dilemmas.
Participants in CPSP can expect to develop a sophisticated understanding of development in school-aged children and adolescents, deepen their understanding of the role of the psychologist/consultant within the school setting, and achieve an integrated sense of the impact and interplay of psychodynamic, familial, social and cultural factors in students’ lives.
Qualifications include a Psy.D. or Ph.D. in Psychology and previous training in work with children/adolescents. Specific experience in schools is not a requirement. A certificate will be provided when the program is completed. The yearly fee is $600.00 (a small additional charge will apply to those students who are accepted into the CAPP Supervisory Group). Interested applicants should contact Dr. Susan Scheftel at email@example.com or 212-769-9311. You can download the application here.
