Do you feel like your graduate training has not sufficiently prepared you to understand and work with patients? Are you interested in learning more about psychodynamic thinking but are not ready to make a commitment to formal training?
This 19-session program is designed to meet the needs of psychiatry residents, graduate students and early career clinicians interested in learning more about practice and treatment approaches in psychodynamic psychotherapy and psychoanalysis. The seminars have a clinical and practical focus, providing participants with an opportunity to hear and discuss case material. Most sessions are structured around a key clinical or theoretical concept and may include optional readings.
The seminars are taught by IPE faculty members and advanced training candidates. At the conclusion of the Prelude program successful participants receive a letter of completion.
The program includes the option of arranging, at no cost, two private mentoring sessions with a psychodynamic clinician to help you explore your own path as a professional in the fields of psychiatry, psychology, social work and mental health. This is not a training program and does not entail supervision.
Refreshments (coffee and bagels) are offered.
