The Chicago Center for Psychoanalysis provides a course of study leading to certification in psychoanalysis for candidates who reside outside of greater Chicago but would be able to travel to the city several times a year for our weekend classes. Our program would be of particular interest to colleagues who live in areas where analytic training is not offered or where it might otherwise be difficult to attend a local program.
Unlike other programs, the distance option is not a separate course of study. It is integrated with our onsite training. All of our candidates train together regardless of whether they reside locally, nationally, or internationally. Our curriculum allows candidates to take courses on either a full or part-time basis.
We offer an analytic training program that is egalitarian, supportive, and welcoming, where clinicians develop analytic skills and practice from diverse perspectives and in which one’s identity as a psychoanalyst is developed.
Requirements for certification include:
