                                                                       APsaP Fellowship Application
The 2018-2019 APsaA Fellowship Application is now available on our website! The deadline for application is Monday, February 5th (just over 3 months from now). The Fellowship Program is designed as an early-career initiative for future leaders and educators in the fields of psychiatry, psychology, social work, and academia. It provides an opportunity to gain knowledge about psychoanalysis and become involved in your local and national psychoanalytic community. All qualified applicants receive a psychoanalyst mentor with whom they meet monthly, a free subscription to the APsaA newsletter (TAP), and complimentary registration at APsaA’s National and Annual Meetings. The APsaA Fellowship is a wonderful program that fosters a rich and collaborative community for early career professionals. I am a former fellow and am now a committee member and strongly recommend the program. We are especially keen to attract more applications from psychologists! I cannot emphasize this enough.

The Chicago Center for Psychoanalysis


The Chicago Center for Psychoanalysis is a free-standing, nonprofit institute dedicated to the education of psychoanalysts and the practice of psychoanalysis. CCP offers a course of study leading to certification in psychoanalysis, a referral resource for those interested in receiving clinical services, and a general education program for therapists and other interested individuals. Its psychoanalytic training program is incorporated under the laws of the State of Illinois and adheres to Federal and State guidelines regarding nondiscrimination by race, gender, religion, and sexual orientation.

CCP's training programs provide a broad and deep psychoanalytic education, reflecting diverse clinical, technical, theoretical, and historical points of view. Courses are taught by outstanding educators, all of whom have published and presented extensively in their areas of interest and were chosen to reflect the multiplicity of current theoretical perspectives and models of thought. The curriculum is designed to explore the fundamentals of classical psychoanalysis as well as the newest developments in psychoanalytic theory and technique.

CCP candidates (students) are experienced clinicians prior to beginning their psychoanalytic training, with licensure as psychologists, social workers, or other mental health professionals. Candidates participate actively in their training by offering input to the Curriculum Committee, serving on other CCP committees, and acting as candidate representatives to the CCP Board.
