Adult Psychoanalytic Training Program

NCP's Adult Psychoanalytic Training Program is dedicated to exploring the full spectrum of psychoanalytic theory and practice. Training is based on the tripartite model—personal analysis, didactics, and supervision of psychoanalytic work. Students are encouraged to approach their studies with an attitude of critical inquiry. Our curriculum ranges from Freud to the most current evolution of contemporary psychoanalytic theory and practice.

Meet:   Dr. Jill Model Barth, Dean 




Hear from our students: 

"The heartbeat of any analytic training program is your own analysis, and in my analysis, I learned the psychoanalytic relationship is ancient, ordinary, and mysterious in the way it houses our birth and transformation. I learned wholeness is found in accepting our limits and sanity achieved in embracing our mortality. I learned salvation resides in our vulnerability and redemption is found in our dependency on one another. Analytic training at NCP not only recovered my faith in open-hearted living -- it also gave me another chance at life.
