ATPPP Curriculum

The objective of the ATPPP curriculum is to help Trainees develop a sophisticated understanding of the clinical techniques and theoretical complexities of psychoanalytic psychotherapy. Two seminars are combined each evening for a duration of three hours, over more than thirty weeks, for two years. One seminar focuses on the theoretical knowledge base; the second seminar is clinically based, providing an opportunity to clarify and refine theoretical concepts. Assigned readings constitute an important part of the seminars. Some alterations may be made to the seminar format.
