Here’s info that can be edited for your directory:

 

PURPOSE:

The Psychoanalytic Psychology Concentration is designed to meet the need for education and training in assessment, intervention and supervision within a broad psychoanalytic model.  The curriculum provides a firm grounding in major theoretical paradigms with special attention to those which are current and emerging.

                 ___________________________________________________________

 

CONSIDERATIONS:

         Graduates of the Psychoanalytic Concentration will be prepared to work effectively within a psychoanalytic framework and begin postdoctoral training in psychoanalytic psychotherapy or psychoanalysis.

 

         Issues of difference and diversity (e.g. race/ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender, social class) will be addressed throughout the Concentration’s curriculum.

 

COURSE REQUIREMENTS:

Three courses are required to satisfy the requirements of the Concentration:

 

  • Psychoanalytic Theory & Therapy  (Basic Intervention course)
  • Advanced Psychoanalytic Therapy & Supervision (Advanced Intervention course)
  • Three additional credits comprised of either one (3-credit) or two (1.5-credit) courses from the following list, but only when taught by a psychoanalytically-oriented faculty member. (These courses fall under either General or Diversity elective status in the curriculum.): 

 

Psychoanalysis & Diversity

Psychology of Gender

Child Psychotherapy

Psychoanalysis & The Cinema

Advanced Assessment: Rorschach

Clinical Use of Dreams

Addictive Disorders

Eating Disorders

Child Psychotherapy

The Counter-transference Experience

Group Psychotherapy 

 

CLINICAL TRAINING:

 

PRACTICA

An essential aspect of professional education and development is supervised practice in clinical intervention.  Students are required to engage in two, yearlong practicum experiences.  Students should choose training sites at a variety of mental health facilities where licensed clinical psychologists who are psychoanalytically oriented conduct supervision.

 

SEMINAR:

Students must take the Diagnostic and Psychotherapy Seminars concurrent with practica and should take these with a psychoanalytically oriented faculty member.  The primary focus of these seminars is clinical study using taped material from the students’ practica.  The seminar faculty serve as role models for integration of practice and theory in psychoanalytic psychology.

           

INTERNSHIPS:

Students in the Psychoanalytic Concentration are encouraged to choose an internship that will provide supervision in psychoanalytic psychotherapy.

 

CLINICAL RESEARCH PROJECT:

Each student in the concentration is required to choose a psychoanalytically oriented topic for the Clinical Research Project (CRP) and to choose a ‘Chair’ who is psychoanalytically oriented.

 

PERSONAL PSYCHOTHERAPY & EXTRACURRICULAR PROGRAMS

The psychoanalytic faculty strongly encourages students to participate in their own individual psychoanalytic psychotherapy or psychoanalysis as an important aspect of students’ personal and professional development.  Faculty will make appropriate referrals at the student’s request.

 

Additionally, students are urged to join local psychoanalytic professional organizations (e.g., Chicago Association of Psychoanalytic Psychology [CAPP]) and/or participate in their programming.  Further, students in the concentration should consider submitting applications for the various psychoanalytic mentorship/fellowship programs in the Chicago area (e.g., Chicago Center for Psychoanalysis [CCP] or the Chicago Institute for Psychoanalysis).
