The goal of the CAPP program is to provide participants with an exposure to concepts that inform psychodynamic therapy with children and adolescents. One central focus is on the application of these concepts to a variety of clinical settings, including clinics, agencies, community mental health centers, hospitals, and private practice. The program provides a solid grounding in psychoanalytic principles while being attentive to the realities of clinical practice in the current mental health environment. The challenges and practicalities of providing in-depth treatment are discussed throughout the curriculum. CAPP offers practitioners the opportunity to deepen and broaden skills in individual psychodynamic psychotherapy with children and adolescents, clinical assessment, and parent work.

Overview

The goal of the Child and Adolescent Psychotherapy Program (CAPP) is to provide participants with an exposure to concepts that inform psychodynamic therapy with children and adolescents. One central focus is on the application of these concepts to a variety of clinical settings, including clinics, agencies, community mental health centers, hospitals, and private practice. The program provides a solid grounding in psychoanalytic principles while being attentive to the realities of clinical practice in the current mental health environment. The challenges and practicalities of providing in-depth treatment are discussed throughout the curriculum.

CAPP offers practitioners the opportunity to deepen and broaden skills in
• Individual psychodynamic psychotherapy with children and adolescents,
• Clinical assessment, and
• Parent work.

Curriculum

There are three classes each week: one each on theory and technique, and a clinical conference. The theory track includes psychoanalytic approaches to developmental theory and to psychopathology in children and adolescents. The technique classes cover psychodynamic approaches to assessment, parent work, and therapeutic interventions with children and adolescents at different developmental stages. During the clinical conferences, participants present clinical material from the assessment and treatment phases of their work. There is an emphasis on approaches to understanding the material and formulating interventions. 

Schedule and Tuition

This is a two-year program. There are two 15-week semesters per year with breaks for summer and winter holidays. Three 75-minute classes are held each week, for a total of 3.75 hours of weekly class time. The tuition is $2,800 per year. There is an additional annual fee of $36 for access to the PEP-web, which is the principal database used to obtain the majority of the class readings. Participants meet weekly for individual supervision with a member of the faculty at a reduced cost of $60 per session.

Eligibility and Application

Applications are welcome from persons trained at the masters level and above in psychiatry, psychology, social work, psychiatric nursing, counseling, and marriage and family therapy, as well as persons from allied fields such as education and pediatrics. Applicants complete an application form before meeting with a member of the faculty for a personal interview. The application form can be obtained through the Cincinnati Psychoanalytic Institute (CPI) website at www.cps-i.org or by calling the administrative office at (513) 961-8886 – ext 2. There is an application fee of $125. Students are encouraged to engage in personal psychotherapy or psychoanalysis prior to or at the time of matriculation into the program, though this is not a prerequisite.

Continuing Education Credit

CAPP courses for theory and technique qualify for continuing education credits. CPI will file with the ACCME, Ohio Psychological Association (OPA), and Ohio CSWMFT Boards. Participants from states other than Ohio will need to file with their respective licensing boards. CPI will issue a certificate of attendance to those who complete the training courses, but this issuance does not guarantee CEU acceptance by boards other than the ACCME, OPA, and Ohio CSWMFT. See below for more information. You may also contact Mary Kroeger-Vuyk at [email protected]001.us at the Cincinnati Psychoanalytic Institute.

Commuters

Videoconferencing is available for CAPP classes. It is recommended that students who will be participating via videoconferencing attend classes in person two times per semester if at all possible.
