Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy Training Program
The San Francisco Center for Psychoanalysis is pleased to offer a two-year Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy Training Program (PPTP). The PPTP holds classes in San Francisco and welcomes trainees from throughout the Bay Area and from the Sacramento and Davis Areas.
The PPTP's mission is to teach ways of thinking and working that will help each trainee to become a more fulfilled and effective psychoanalytic psychotherapist. This is accomplished through didactic courses, case conferences, mentorship, and supervision. All instructors, case conference leaders, and supervisors are experienced psychoanalytic clinicians and members of the SFCP faculty.
For early-career psychotherapists, the PPTP will serve as an in-depth introduction to psychoanalytic psychotherapy. For more seasoned psychoanalytic psychotherapists, it will solidify and deepen grounding in fundamental principles.
Foundations of Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy
Foundations of Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy is an option that allows trainees to enroll in the PPTP's first-year coursework without obligation to complete supervision or second-year coursework. Trainees who enroll inFoundations of Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy may later decide to apply to the PPTP to engage in the second year of didactic courses and the supervised psychotherapy component of the PPTP.
