The Washington Baltimore Center for Psychoanalysis (WBCP) is now accepting applications for the 2020-2021 Combined Child and Adolescent Fellowship Program and Candidate Seminar. 
 
The Combined Child and Adolescent Fellowship Program and Candidate Seminar is a new, tuition-free program for advanced trainees and graduates in Psychiatry, Psychology, Clinical Social Work and Professional Counseling who have an interest in clinical work with children and adolescents.  The Fellowship Program focuses on the study of psychodynamic/psychoanalytic theory and technique as a body of knowledge and framework with which to understand and carry out therapeutic work.  Fellows will have an opportunity to present their child psychotherapy cases.  Other benefits for Fellows include invitations to the Center’s Psychoanalytic Scientific Meetings and waivers of application fees for local conferences sponsored by the WBCP.   

In addition, the Candidate Seminar provides an opportunity for all participants to listen to child psychoanalytic case presentations by child candidates in training from the Washington Baltimore Center for Psychoanalysis and the Contemporary Freudian Society. Senior child analysts from both training programs will join as discussants. The Combined Child and Adolescent Fellowship Program and Candidate Seminar will be held approximately twice a month on Monday evenings from 8-9:30 PM during the 2020-2021 academic year for a total of 16 sessions. *Optional CME/CE’s are available for a fee. 

NOTE:  All fall classes will be conducted via Zoom, to be re-evaluated for the spring classes.  When circumstances change, related to COVID-19, we would like to resume in person meetings in Washington DC, when it is safe to do so.
