He or she will also explore how the developing individual acquires the capacity to know and care for others, attains a gender identity, develops standards and ideals, and balances working, loving, and living throughout the life cycle. Individuals who successfully complete the two-year didactic curriculum and concurrent individual consultation with faculty members, receive from SDPC a certificate in Adult Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy. Hours of Classes: Classes meet on Thursday evenings from 5:15 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. for a total of 33 weeks from September through May, for two years. Didactic readings emphasize the application of psychoanalytic thought to the practice of psychotherapy. Suitability for Training: A fundamental requirement for psychoanalytic psychotherapy education and clinical training is an established identity as a professional whose conduct assures a firm and enduring commitment to responsible and ethical patient care. The suitable applicant gives evidence of character, integrity, and ethical conduct. Evaluation of suitability is based on interviews with faculty members, as well as letters of reference. Applicants are asked to include in their application a written case report and a personal statement conveying the development of interest in psychoanalytic psychotherapy. Admission Requirements: Licensed mental health clinicians in the State of California are eligible for application for the clinical certificate. Unlicensed applicants with at least a Masters level of training are eligible for application on a case-by-case basis. Applicants must provide proof of malpractice insurance. Course Content: The academic portion of the program includes two years of class work in the following topics: -Advanced Psychodynamic Concepts -Clinical Technique: Beginning a Psychotherapy; Advanced Therapeutic Interventions; Applications to Brief, Couple, and Family Work, and Work with the Seriously Ill -Development: Becoming Who We Are, from Birth to Old Age -Psychodynamic Diagnosis: Neurotic and Borderline Personality Organization -Contemporary Psychoanalytic Theory -Case Conferences: Assessment; Formulation; Psychotherapy Process Concurrent Consultation: Students will participate in individual case consultation during the two-year program. Consultants are chosen from the SDPC faculty; nonfaculty consultants must be approved on a case-by-case waiver from the PPP Executive Committee. Fifty hours of total consultation are required for completion of the program. Consultation hours are spent with at least two different consultants. Consultation may address intensive individual therapy cases in the student’s caseload, or any other type of clinical work performed by the student. Personal Treatment: Students are encouraged to engage in their own personal psychoanalysis or psychoanalytic psychotherapy. Intensive psychodynamic work with patients typically calls for a level of self-knowledge in the therapist that is best attained with the assistance of intensive personal psychoanalytic therapy. Progression: The student’s work is evaluated semiannually by the Progressions Committee of the Psychotherapy Executive Committee and discussed with the student by a designated faculty member. Progression standards include attendance and completion of written case formulations and other assignments. Leave of Absence Policies: A student may request, in writing, a temporary leave of absence from the program.
