Training Programs in Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy
The PPAA Member Associations offer accredited Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy Training Programs. These are available in New South Wales, New Zealand, Queensland, Victoria and Western Australia. There is also a specific training in Child Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy. Training programs include supervised clinical practice, theoretical and clinical seminars and infant observation, undertaken concurrently with the candidate’s/trainee’s own personal psychoanalytic psychotherapy. The programs are intensive and extend over a three to five year period. To be considered for membership of a PPAA Member Association (MA) one needs to have either graduated from a relevant accredited training program, or one needs to meet the provisions for prior learning set out by the MA. It is important to note that there is a requirement of substantial concurrency of personal therapy with seminars and clinical supervision, if an applicant for MA membership has not graduated from an accredited training program. Please visit the MA websites below for further information about training programs and other professional development and training opportunities.
