A Certificate of Foundation Principles in Psychoanalytic Understanding of Children and Adolescents will be awarded upon the successful completion of the first four units.
 
LEVEL 2
PRACTICE OF PSYCHOANALYTIC CHILD AND ADOLESCENT PSYCHOTHERAPY
The Course in child and adolescent psychotherapy (Level 2) introduces the student to the practice of child and adolescent psychotherapy. As well as reading classic papers concerning the theory and practice of child and adolescent psychotherapy, issues concerning techniques in the assessment and therapy of children and adolescents and working with parents will be examined.

Students can apply for Associate Membership of ICAPP after presenting papers on a child, adolescent and family/parent cases.
 
LEVEL 3
CLINICAL TRAINING IN PSYCHOANALYTIC CHILD AND ADOLESCENT PSYCHOTHERAPY 
Clinical Training in child and adolescent psychotherapy (Level 3) builds upon the level 1 and 2 coursework. All units will have a clinical emphasis. Readings in contemporary literature on child and adolescent therapy will be examined, incorporating the 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.
