The Clinical Program on Psychotherapy Practice (CPPP), founded in 1989, is a two-year certificate training program that offers an in-depth study of contemporary psychodynamic theories and their application to various models of psychotherapy. By including courses on early approaches, such as ego psychology, object relations, and self-psychology—as well as more contemporary subjects, such as attachment theory, neurobiology, and relational theories—the curriculum allows for an understanding of the evolution of psychodynamic thought, its application to individual, couple and group therapy, and its relevance to today’s world. CPPP instructors value the development of critical thinking skills in regard to all material and teach through a lens that addresses diversities of social identities and intersectionality. Throughout the program, students receive feedback on clinical cases through both group discussions in class and individual supervision with a seasoned practitioner. Students remain with the same cohort throughout the two years, which allows for open, supportive discussions and the growth of enduring collegial relationships.

New class starts September of 2024. Contact
