CERTIFICATE COURSE IN PSYCHOANALYTIC
UNDERSTANDING OF CHILDREN AND ADOLESCENTS
The Certificate Course (Level 1) is a Foundational level of learning in which the practice of observing infantile states of mind and reading about psychoanalytic principles are introduced. The skills and knowledge developed at this level are considered to be the basis of all future psychoanalytic psychotherapy.
Units 1 to 4 must be successfully completed before students can progress to Level 2.
COURSE IN PSYCHOANALYTIC CHILD AND ADOLESCENT PSYCHOTHERAPY
Each student is required to be undertaking their own personal therapy for study and practice at this level. It is a requirement that the therapist be approved by ICAPP.
This course introduces the student to the practice of child and adolescent psychotherapy. We will be reading relevant classic papers which explore theory and practice as well as considering techniques used in assessment and therapy. We will also be studying readings on the theory and practice of working with parents.
Units 5 to 8 must be successfully completed before students can progress to Level 3.
CLINICAL TRAINING IN PSYCHOANALYTIC CHILD AND ADOLESCENT PSYCHOTHERAPY
Clinical Training in child and adolescent psychotherapy (Level 3) builds upon Level 2 and begins the formal training in child and adolescent therapy. All units will have a clinical emphasis. Readings in contemporary literature on child and adolescent therapy will be examined, incorporating different schools of analytic thinking in this area. Clinical supervision and discussion both individually and in small groups will begin. Students will be required to be undertaking clinical work with children and / or adolescents. Students are expected to continue their personal therapy during this training.
NEW STAND-ALONE DIPLOMA COURSE
History and Theory of Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy with Children and Adolescents. STAGES 1, 2 and 3.
ICAPP is delighted to announce the commencement of a new diploma course, History and Theory of Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy with Children and Adolescents. This course has been developed due to popular demand for a course which provides in depth exploration and analysis of psychoanalytic theory and its historical development and main theorists.
The course will take you through the history of the development of key concepts in enlivening and accessible seminars. The writings of a range of theorists including Freud, Klein, Winnicott, Bion, Lacan, Bollas, Ogden, Alvarez and Ferro are just some of the theorists whose ideas will be explored. Contemporary and emerging ideas in thought and practice will also be introduced.
This course will not only focus on these core ideas but will also develop students’ understanding of how these concepts relate to clinical work and as such will be intrinsic in enhancing your clinical practice.
The course comprises of three levels each spanning a 15-week semester.
This course may be taken as a stand-alone qualification or as part of the completion of the three-year IACPP training.
Stage one – An overview of the different schools of thought. This is a broad introduction to the various theoretical positions informing and shaping psychoanalytic practice.
Stage two – Advanced reading on Kleinian theory followed by the exploration and consideration of the writings of Wilfred Bion and the significant impact of his ideas.
Stage three – Building on the Klein and Bion readings this level explores post-Bion theoretical developments as articulated by Thomas Ogden and Antonino Ferro. Further contemporary emerging directions and influences will also be discussed.
This diploma is suitable for current clinicians who may have not undertaken a formal reading program in psychoanalytic theory, or non-clinicians interested in the development of psychoanalytic theory.
$1050 each for units 3, 4 and 8. These Units continue for 15 weeks.
$100 per week for Infant Observation (90 minute seminar). This unit continues for at least one year
Fees to be advised for seminar 10
