Teachers Needed

Thursday, February 19th, 2009

Dear Colleagues

CAPA, the China American Psychoanalytic Alliance is now recruiting teachers for the second year of our Two-year Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy Training Program (our program is similar to programs taught at psychoanalytic Institutes and Societies and departments of psychiatry). Our first year (57 students at 6 sites) has gone very well. The students have “good-enough” English and are eager to learn. Our (almost 50) instructors have enjoyed the work immensely.

Training Program.
There are 3 trimesters.
There is a theory and a technique class in each trimester
Each class is one hour fifteen minutes long
Each course has 10 classes.
The students at each site are together in a classroom.
Everything is done on Skype. (more…)
