The Philadelphia School of Psychoanalysis

Develop Clinical Skills

Participants in the program are post-graduate mental health professionals who wish to develop and hone their clinical skills through classroom learning, mentoring and clinical case discussion. Participants will gain the support and confidence necessary to develop or expand their private practices or work more effectively with patients in community mental health agencies, schools, universities, and health care settings.

Our curriculum is designed for mental health professionals who are interested in deepening their understanding of their clients and who want to learn how to translate that understanding into their practice.

Committed to Excellence

The center is committed to excellence in training of psychoanalysts as well as psychotherapist, graduate students, interns and allied professionals who wish to deepen their theoretical understanding and clinical skills in psychodynamic psychotherapy.
