The APP provides a solid foundation in the theory and technique of psychodynamic work with adults. The program includes two components: weekly classes and clinical consultation.

The classes comprise a two-year curriculum. Classes take place on Friday mornings, 32 weeks per year. There are 3 classes each week. These include a Theory course, which encompasses historical and contemporary psychoanalytic theory and concepts as well as psychodynamic understandings of development and psychopathology; a Technique course, which focuses on psychodynamic approaches to assessment and intervention; and a clinical conference. In the clinical conference, clinical material presented by students is used as a springboard for the discussion of material presented in the didactic classes.

Each APP student receives weekly consultation session from a member of the CPI faculty. the consultation programis a highly individualized process focusing on the specifics of the challenges of providing in-depth treatment.

In addition, each student is encouraged to have had or be engaged in an in-depth personal psychotherapy. While this is not a requirement of the program, it is highly recommended.

Tuition for the APP is $2800. Weekly consultation is offered at a discounted rate of $60 per hour.
