Clinical Consultants in Psychoanalysis: Developing Skills in Psychoanalytic Supervision

This course provides education in consultation skills to those who wish to provide clinical supervision to psychoanalysts in training.

This distance learning program based on APA competencies is geared towards Psychoanalysts who graduated approximately five years ago from an ACPEInc,
APsaA, or IPA approved Institute; who have supervised a psychotherapist; who are interested in learning to consult to psychoanalytic cases, and to prepare as a supervisor of a candidate conducting a psychoanalytic treatment. Each participant must show proof of licensure, malpractice insurance, and is responsible for applying the skills learned ethically within the regulations of their relevant licensing body.

Educational Objectives

The design of The Clinical Consultants in Psychoanalysis: Developing Skills in Psychoanalytic Supervision is based on the American Psychological Association’s domains of competency and meta-competency in supervision, modified by IPI for psychoanalytic supervision. This course provides education in consultation skills to those who wish to provide clinical supervision to psychoanalysts in training. The educational aim is to build competence and meta-competence in the conduct of the professional role of consultant in the supervision of psychoanalytic candidates, including attending to the ethics of role, boundary, task, and duty to supervisee, patient, profession, and institution; listening with sensitivity to diversity and power gradient issues, establishing space for reflection, and using transference and countertransference judiciously; engaging in self-monitoring and self-care; detecting and consulting to learning challenges including analytic case writing; and conducting mutual evaluation of the consultative relationship.

Continuing Education Credit

The International Institute of Psychoanalytic Training (IIPT) is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Psychoanalytic Education, ACPEinc.
ACPEinc

1.5 CE Credit will be earned per session for a total of 24 CE hours in relation to stated learning objectives. A certificate of completion is awarded at the end of the course. The certificate will verify satisfactory completion of intensive training, rather than provide a license in supervision.
