Accredited Training Institutes

APsaA's approved (accredited) Training Institutes and New Training Facilities maintain the highest quality of psychoanalytic education as outlined in APsaA's Principles and Standards for Education in psychoanalysis (as defined by the Association's Board on Professional Standards).

The Board on Professional Standards is composed of representatives from each of APsaA's accredited training institutes and officers of the Association). Clinical psychoanalytic training programs in Adult Psychoanalysis and/or Child and/or Child and Adolescent Psychoanalysis reflect the educational requirements, clinical training, and clinical experience necessary for an individual to become a competent psychoanalyst.

New Training Facilities

A New Training Facility is the development of a new institute usually within a geographic area not currently represented among APsaA's existing accredited training institutes. The Facility is sponsored directly by the Association or by an accredited institute and a liaison subcommittee from the Committee on New Training Facilities (CNTF) with which it works throughout its existence as a new training facility. This proven structure provides for the development of curriculum, admission, selection and progression provisions, and the development of training and supervisory analyses for candidates.

Once a New Training Facility has grown to the point that it has the specified number of Geographic Rule (or required) Training Analysts, an established faculty of sufficient size to carry out all activities of an institute and provide the source for new training analysts, has sources of new candidates and analytic cases, and the ability to conduct a psychoanalytic training program consistent with the standards of the Board on Professional Standards, the new training facility may be considered for the status of Provisional Institute. A provisional institute is ready to become an accredited institute once it has demonstrated over a period of time its ability to function independently. Site Visits are regularly conducted by the CNTFof the Board of Professional Standards.
