Interim Director of Psychoanalytic Training

The Blanton-Peale Graduate Institute’s Psychoanalytic Training Program is a four-year comprehensive post-Master’s graduate program entailing didactic courses, patient work, and individual and case conference supervision, and is offered to persons seeking to be licensed psychoanalysts. The program is one of the only post-graduate training programs in New York City that seeks to integrate spirituality and psychoanalysis. Upon graduation, candidates in the program are eligible to sit for the psychoanalytic licensing exam in New York State. The Program is affiliated with the American Board for Accreditation in Psychoanalysis (ABAP), and graduates of the program are eligible for membership in the National Association for the Advancement of Psychoanalysis (NAAP). In addition to the four-year Residency program, the Graduate Institute also offers mini-courses on specialized topics: neuroscience, intergenerational trauma, and attachment theory.

The Blanton-Peale Pastoral Care Program, offered in Korean, is designed to enhance the professional skills of clergy and other religious leaders in the areas of pastoral care and non-licensed pastoral counseling. Candidates in the program are often already religious professionals, but may also be professionals who are licensed in the mental health field through some other previous degree or licensing program, and who seek a fuller integration of spiritual aspects of human experience into the mental health field. Graduates are eligible to apply for membership in the American Association for Pastoral Counseling (AAPC).
