Students in the Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy Program are allowed to miss two seminars each year. Any seminar absences over that amount must be made up by writing a synopsis of the missed material based on the readings and submitting it to the instructor or the program director. Excessive absences may result in the being asked to repeat the courses missed.


Students or graduates of the Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy Program shall not represent themselves as psychoanalysts or graduates of the Center’s Training Program in Psychoanalysis.
