Psychoanalysis for Scholars is 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 for Psychoanalysis. 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.
