Clinical Training

IPI offers a range of clinical training options for those who wish to practice from a psychodynamic perspective. Clinicians may focus on in-depth or short-term treatments with individuals, couples, families, children, and adolescents in varied treatment settings. Our programs provide didactic instruction on classical and contemporary psychoanalytic theory and technique combined with clinical applications to facilitate the development of clinical skills and dynamic understanding.
