The Chicago Psychoanalytic Institute  is pleased to announce Psychoanalysis for Scholars (PSP), a program for academics with advanced degrees to become clinical psychoanalysts. The program consists of a preparatory period of instruction followed by the psychoanalytic training at the Institute.

The preparatory training is designed to allow the applicant to become familiar with clinical practice, psychiatric interviewing, and diagnostic nomenclature and to begin a psychotherapeutic experience. Following this period the applicant would pursue psychoanalytic training resulting in a certificate of competence to practice psychoanalysis. Completion of the PSP program does not lead to a licensable degree or certification.

Who May Apply:
