Listen, Understand, Interpret, and Explore

James T. McLaughlin Training Program In Psychodynamic Psychotherapy 

Listen, understand, interpret, and explore the in-depth psychological approaches to the complexities of the mind. This psychodynamic psychotherapy program is aimed at helping mental health practitioners deepen their work with their patients/clients. You may participate in Year One without making a commitment to the Advanced Year course.

 

What to Expect

The program provides rich and clinically relevant readings on theory and technique. Class sizes are small and structured somewhat like a study group. The goal is to provide a comfortable environment for learning and useful resources for professional growth.  A group of diverse clinicians and academics usually comprise the course membership. Various professions, ages, and years of experience make for an interesting mix of perspective and a lively learning environment.  

 

Eligibility

The psychodynamic psychotherapy training program is designed for participants who are trained and licensed  in the fields of psychology, social work, counseling, psychiatric nursing, medicine and psychiatry. If you are not currently licensed, but are working toward licensure, you may ask for an exception. Exceptions are granted on an individual basis. 

 

All participants are expected to participate in Year One as a prerequisite to participating in the Advanced Year of the course unless permission is granted based on prior psychodynamic training.

Part-Time Candidate Option While Enrolled in Advanced Year of McLaughlin Training: Designed for those interested in pursuing clinical or academic training in psychoanalysis

Additional interviews will be required--Use "Candidate Application" for enrollment. This will also mean a more in-depth interview process. 

 

For those who are interested in training in psychoanalysis, but who are unable to commit to a full schedule of coursework, PPC has created this part-time option.

 

If  you apply and are accepted, the part-time program would stretch the regular first-year curriculum over two years. In the first year, you would participate in the Advanced Year of the McLaughlin Training Program in Psychodynamic Psychotherapy (see above for details) and our Comprehensive Freud Course on Monday evenings from September through May. These courses would count as part of your curriculum as a student studying psychoanalysis. In addition, you will participate in our Visiting Analyst Weekend. To fully understand the course work and to heighten the experience, we highly recommended your own course of psychodynamic psychotherapy or psychoanalysis as well as supervision 1x a week of your clinical cases.

 

The supervision and psychotherapy are not included in the cost of the course and are not required in the first year.

 

Number of sessions: 35 plus Visiting Analyst Weekend

 

 

Class Dates for 2021-2022: Monday evenings, 7:00-9:00 p.m., beginning in September, as follows:  dates will be available soon.
