Continuing Education Policies & Information

Non-Discrimination

NCP does not discriminate on the basis of age, race, color, gender/gender identification, marital status, religion, sexual orientation, or national and ethnic origin in the administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, and scholarship programs. In accordance with California and federal law, NCP has a policy of nondiscrimination for persons with disabilities who are otherwise qualified for training.

Registration

Unless otherwise noted, pre-registration must be completed 24 hours before the course in order to be eligible for a discount, if offered.

Student Discount

For many of our programs, we offer a significant student discount. Please check individual listings for details.

Cancellation and Refund Policy

NCP reserves the right to cancel any class, and in that event, a full refund is given. With notice of at least three business days, anyone may cancel their registration and receive a full refund. If the cancellation is within the three business days, 75% credit is given toward registration for another class. This credit must be used within six months of the cancellation.

Parking

Limited parking is available behind the NCP building with entry from Beloit Ave. On Saturdays, no parking is allowed in spaces #12-21.

Complaint/Grievance Policy

While New Center for Psychoanalysis goes to great lengths to assure fair treatment for all participants and attempts to anticipate problems, there will be occasional issues which come to the attention of the NCP staff which require intervention and/or action on the part of the staff or an officer of the New Center for Psychoanalysis. This procedural description serves as a guideline for handling such complaints/grievances.

When a participant, either orally or in written format, files a grievance or expects action on the complaint, the following actions will be taken:

  • If the complaint/grievance concerns a speaker, the content presented by the speaker, or the style of presentation, the individual filing the complaint will be asked to put his/her comments in written format. The Extension or Program Committee Chair will then pass on the comments to the speaker, assuring the confidentiality of the grieved individual.
  • If the complaint/grievance concerns a course offering, its content, level of presentation, or the facilities in which the course was offered and the participant requests action, the staff person on duty will:

a. attempt to move the participant to another offering, or
b. provide a credit for a subsequent program, or
c. provide a partial or full refund of the course fee

The Extension or Program Committee Chair or the course coordinator will be notified and if any further action is requested, he/she will mediate. Situations may be handled in on a case-by-case basis. The Committee Chair will be final arbitrator.

All actions require written documentation of the complaint/grievance. The complainant will be encouraged to submit such a notification but if the complaint is only given verbally, the staff person on duty will document the complaint. The staff person will also document the action taken and any request for further follow-up action.

To submit a complaint or if you have additional questions, please contact:
