The Integrated Training Track (ITT) in Adult, Child and Adolescent Psychoanalysis

The ITT Track was established with the understanding that study of and work with infants children and adolescents can greatly inform and enrich psychoanalytic work with adults as well as be richly rewarding and professionally enhancing in itself.

Candidates in IPTAR’s Adult Psychoanalytic Training Program have the option to simultaneously train in child and adolescent psychoanalysis. Upon completion of the child and adolescent requirements of the ITT, candidates are recognized as child and adolescent psychoanalysts. A certificate in Child Psychotherapy also can be obtained as an interim certificate upon completion of IPTAR’s Child and Adolescent Psychotherapy Program (CAP) requirements.

Candidates in Adult Psychoanalytic Training at IPTAR have the option to undergo simultaneous training in child psychoanalysis. In addition to the adult psychoanalytic curriculum, candidates in the Integrated Training Track take additional required courses in IPTAR’s Child and Adolescent Psychotherapy Program; courses in child analysis; a yearlong infant observation seminar; and see two child psychoanalytic cases supervised by child analysts.
