The First Year curriculum includes intensive study of psychodynamic clinical technique and theory along with deep study of psychodynamic development in order to help student clinicians integrate and effectively apply psychodynamic principles. Clinical case material is primarily psychotherapy cases but also includes psychoanalytic cases in order to enrich clinical application of concepts and foster a working knowledge of the complimentary relationship between psychodynamic treatment modalities. The Second Year is focused on specific clinical applications of psychodynamic psychotherapy and includes an ongoing clinical case conference. Faculty is drawn from the NYPSI membership.
In the First Year of the Psychodynamic Psychotherapy Program, students will take the following courses on Wednesday evenings from 7 - 10 pm. Course descriptions and readings can be found on the ADULT PSYCHOANALYSIS curriculum page.
