The Blanton-Peale Psychoanalytic Training Program

The Psychoanalytic Training Program at Blanton-Peale offers a comprehensive post-master’s graduate training that culminates in a Certificate in Psychoanalysis. Graduates may sit for the New York State licensing exam. View the Course Catalog

Applicants to the program come from a broad range of backgrounds, including the traditional mental health disciplines of psychology, social work, and medicine, as well as religion, education, the arts, humanities, and law. Graduates of the Blanton-Peale program hold positions in many professional settings around the world, including mental health agencies, educational and religious institutions, and business entities. Many maintain private practices.

The Blanton-Peale Psychoanalytic Training Program integrates psychoanalysis with spirituality broadly defined, and includes not only traditional Judeo-Christian faith perspectives, but Middle Eastern and Eastern philosophies, and general humanistic and social justice viewpoints. Blanton-Peale’s approach to psychoanalytic training is multi-modal and represents the range of historical and contemporary psychoanalytic perspectives, from classical to ego psychology, through the object relation traditions, and into self-psychological, intersubjective, and relational modalities.

Blanton-Peale welcomes anyone with a master’s degree who is interested in psychoanalytic training. A primary condition is the desire to engage in interactions that value humanity and privilege curiosity about the human condition. The Program, modeled on traditional psychoanalytic training, consists of three components:

• Comprehensive course work, which can be completed in four years,
• Clinical Experience under supervision, and
• The candidate’s own experience of psychoanalysis.
