The Metropolitan Institute for Training in Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy (MITPP) offers affordable contemporary certificate programs in Adult Psychoanalytic Psycho-therapy and in Child and Adolescent Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy to individuals licensed or certified in social work, psychology, psychiatry or psychiatric nursing, and to those working toward such credentials. Counselors and others who hold a Master’s degree can train to qualify as licensed psychoanalysts under NY State licensure laws. In this specialized training you will develop expertise through hands-on experience in a professional setting doing work that is richly rewarding.

Full time candidates in this track have the opportunity to be paid for their clinical work.
