Clinical Training
The clinical training programs of the Psychoanalytic Center of the Carolinas prepare clinicians to relieve human suffering and facilitate individual growth through their sophisticated understanding of human nature and their disciplined approach to a therapeutic relationship.

Tri-Partite Training Model
Our training programs are designed to enrich and strengthen each student’s development as a clinician and psychoanalytic psychotherapist and/or psychoanalyst.

We believe this is best achieved when clinicians have a solid foundation in psychoanalytic theory and technique, receive close clinical supervision, and can develop the high degree of self awareness and self reflection needed to deepen their sensitivity to the client-therapist relationship.

To facilitate each student’s professional and personal growth, the training programs offer students a comprehensive training experience, which includes:

  • Coursework in theory and technique
  • Supervised clinical work
  • Personal treatment

Academic Training

Individuals from various educational and professional backgrounds who plan to incorporate psychoanalytic theory into their work are eligible to apply for training as a matriculated academic student in the psychoanalytic psychotherapy and psychoanalysis training programs.
 Academic students undertake personal psychoanalysis or psychoanalytic psychotherapy and participate in the training programs required curriculum.
