  • Registration for audit (active candidates only):
    You are not committed to seminars which you plan to audit. You may audit a seminar-- for no credit and for a reduced fee of $200 per course -- if you are a current candidate and have not yet completed the required seminar component of the training, provided that you are registered for the minimum required number of seminars(three)and case conference per academic year. You may register to audit a course at any time during the academic year. If you decide to audit a seminar, please contact Toula Kourliouros-Kalven at tkalven@ccpsa.org.
  • Once you submit the registration form, you will be considered committed to the seminars for which you register for full credit and at full fee. With good reason, you may later substitute another seminar for one you are unable to take, but this must take place within the current academic year. Any changes must be discussed with and approved by Toula Kourliouros-Kalven (tkalven@ccpsa.org).
  • Registration for half-fee:
    If you have already completed the required 30 elective seminars and the clinical case conference requirement, and wish to take additional elective seminars and/or case conferences, you may do so at a reduced fee: one-half the tuition of a full credit seminar. You do not need to register in advance, but if you can, please do so. To register during the academic year, please contact Toula Kourliouros Kalven (tkalven@ccpsa.org).

    CCP Graduates and board members may also take elective seminars for 1/2 the full fee.

Seminar Title: Negative Impact and Radical Openness in the Psychoanalytic Process

Seminar description : This clinically focused course addresses the problem of analysts’ attachment to their own senses of personal goodness, an attachment that can prevent analysts from being maximally receptive to their analysands’ conveyance of information about negative impact and about aspects of analysts’ participation that are “bad”. Through presentation of case material by class members and the instructor, we will explore the instructor’s concept of Radical Openness as a pathway to ethical psychoanalytic conduct that may emerge from within the psychoanalytic relationship itself.
