  • Academic Associate Program
    in Adult

    We offer education to professionals for whom a general understanding of psychoanalytic theory and principles would be useful in their primary field of work, such as attorneys and members of the clergy, and to researchers, scholars, and educators. This creates a stimulating interchange of ideas between clinical psychoanalysts and scholars and professionals from other disciplines. Non-clinical education in psychoanalysis should be relevant to the applicant's own professional activities, and it is hoped that they, in turn, will be able to contribute to the field of psychoanalysis.

    Academic associate candidates participate in the same classes and other educational experiences as clinical candidates, with the exception of psychoanalytic case work. Personal analysis for non-clinical candidates is highly recommended.

    Admission to the Academic Associate Program requires a completed application with personal and academic references, personal interviews with members of the Admissions Committee, and approval by the Education Committee. Tuition is the same as for clinical candidates. For further information about this program, contact the PANY office.
