  • 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.

Registration is closed

She is author of two books: To Redeem One Person is to Redeem the World: The Life of Frieda Fromm-Reichmann, which questions standard assumptions about treatment through the story of a pioneering psychiatrist, and Agnes’s Jacket: A Psychologist’s Search for the Meanings of Madness, which shows how the insights of people diagnosed with psychosis can challenge fundamental assumptions about mental health, community, and human experience.  Her Bibliography of First-Person Narratives of Madness in English, now in its 5th edition with more than 1,000 titles, is used internationally by educators, clinicians, and peer organizations. She directs the Hearing Voices Research Project (a national research and training effort supported by the Foundation for Excellence in Mental Health Care), and speaks widely about mental health issues across the US, UK, and Europe. www.gailhornstein.com

Seminar Title: Intensive psychotherapy as “mutual adventure”: Frieda Fromm-Reichmann’s pioneering approach

Seminar Description: Frieda Fromm-Reichmann became prominent for her clinical acumen – especially with seriously distressed patients – and her classic texts Principles of Intensive Psychotherapy (published 1950) and Selected Papers (published posthumously 1959) established her as an especially clear guide to navigating the complexities of psychological change. Her contributions to our understanding of the therapeutic relationship remain as relevant now as when first published, and her pragmatic optimism about the “mutual adventure” to which therapist and patient commit themselves continues to inspire clinicians from many backgrounds. This seminar will highlight key principles of Fromm-Reichmann’s approach, and apply them to case examples contributed by seminar participants.
