The Institute for Child & Adolescent Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy
The Institute of Child and Adolescent Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy (ICAPP) is an organisation which provides a range of education and training courses for health, welfare and educational professions.
The courses are designed to develop psychoanalytic thinking that can be effectively used in various settings involving work with children and adolescents and their families.
In the ICAPP training for 2021 Units 1 to 12 will be offered. There are 4 units in each year. While individual units can be taken, the progression in the training requires all units in the previous year to be successfully completed until moving on to the next year’s units.
Level 1 – This stays the same: Certificate Course in Psychoanalytic Understanding of Children and Adolescents
Level 2 – Course in Psychoanalytic Child and Adolescent Psychotherapy
Level 3 – Clinical Training in Psychoanalytic Child and Adolescent Psychotherapy
These guides are an introduction to areas of interest concerning child and adolescent psychotherapy. While undertaking a reading programme within the context of a training programme is recommended, these guides can assist those who are not in a position to do this, but wish to expose themselves to relevant literature on particular topics.
The courses are available to graduates and experienced professionals from a variety of health and education disciplines who are interested in the application of psychodynamic thinking to a range of fields of human endeavour and intervention. Applicants require a 3-year degree in a relevant discipline from an approved tertiary institution. People interested in training are required to fill out an application form and have an interview (in person, or by phone or online) to determine the appropriateness of the application.
In 2021 ICAPP will introduce a number of new activities with the aim of stimulating people to become more familiar with the area of child and adolescent psychotherapy. It will also establish a site to promote a dialogue between child therapists, students and other professionals interested in this area.
