Psychodynamic Psychotherapy Fellowships
The PINE Psychoanalytic Center is offering a Psychodynamic Psychotherapy Fellowship Program for 2021-2022. PINE is well known for its small classes, collegial approach to learning, and careful attention to the professional development of each student. The Fellowship will be limited to 6 fellows and is designed for early career psychotherapists or more experienced therapists who wish to deepen their knowledge of psychodynamic theories and techniques.
The core portion of the Fellowship will consist of group discussions facilitated by one or two faculty members on Thursday evenings from 7:30-9:30 p.m. There will be six workshops, each taught by different teachers, from late September through May, 2022. In most of the classes fellows and instructors discuss readings about psychodynamic concepts and techniques that come to life in discussions about clinical experience. One of the workshops focuses exclusively on clinical moments and process. In another workshop fellows will make use of clinical vignettes and process material to learn about how to describe the therapist's experience and ideas. All of our classes are based on an educational philosophy of mutual learning.
Each fellow will be provided with:
- A clinical supervisor to enhance the development of psychotherapy skills
- An individual mentor, if requested, for professional/career advising
- Access to psychoanalytic literature through an electronic library (PEP-web)
- Participation in PINE's clinical discussion groups and community programs.
Mental health clinicians of all disciplines are encouraged to apply. We welcome diversity to maximize learning from each other.
Tuition: $2,800 ($1,500 is applied to supervision). To ensure a Fellowship space, a $250 deposit is due with the application. Download the application here. The deposit will be refunded (minus a $50 processing fee) if the applicant is not accepted or withdraws. The remaining tuition is due by August 1st, although plans can be made to pay in installments. Up to 52 CE/CME credits are available. Limited scholarship assistance can be considered on request.
Applications will be accepted through July, 2021. We will be interviewing applicants to make our final selections, and the 2021-2022 Fellows will be announced on a rolling basis. If more places are available after that date, applicants will be considered.
