CMPS One-Year Program
This program offers a solid foundation in modern psychoanalytic theory and
technique. The four component courses are designed to be useful to practitioners
and non-practitioners alike. An introduction to psychological development, both
healthy and distorted, imparts an understanding of the rationale for psychoanalytic
treatment. Key aspects of the treatment process are studied from the perspectives
of patient and practitioner. Participants gain a sense of themselves as therapeutic
agents and begin to develop skills applicable in clinical and other life situations.
Classes are taught in a supportive, discussion-oriented format. Continuing
education credits are offered to social workers and psychoanalysts. Tuition for the
CMPS One-Year Program is $1,000 per semester, covering two courses each ten-
week semester.

clinical practitioners and professionals in various disciplines by introducing them
to modern psychoanalytic principles, theories, and techniques. Students enhance
their therapeutic skills, generate new insights about themselves and their work,
and develop more effective ways of interacting with their clients. Nonpractitioners
who would like to learn more about psychoanalysis are also welcome to participate.
Classes utilize case material to illustrate theory. Both experiential and traditional
teaching methods are used to promote learning. Fifteen continuing education
credits per semester are available for licensed psychoanalysts and social workers
who complete the course requirements. Tuition for each ten-week course is $500.

In addition to the four courses listed below, a variety of other courses is offered
every semester, including courses in psychoanalysis and the humanities and
psychoanalysis and current sociopolitical themes. Information about them is
