The Application Process
Training in Child, Adolescent and Adult Psychoanalysis

The Carter-Jenkins Center offers a complete training program to those who wish to specialize in the theory and the practice of psychoanalysis. The academic program is divided into three parts consisting of 1) personal training analysis, 2) theoretical instruction, and 3) systematic observations and clinical work with on-going consultation.

Applicants must satisfy the Admissions Committee of The Center as to the potential maturity of personality, the integrity of character, intellectual honesty, and aptitude for psychological and psychotherapeutic work. All mental health practitioners who are licensed/licensed eligible to work in the State of Florida as a M.D., Ph.D., Psy.D., LCSW, LMFT, and LMHC may apply.

We welcome applicants whose educational background, clinical aptitude and character indicate the potential for doing analytic work. All applicants are asked to submit a brief autobiographical statement in addition to a completed application form and their academic transcripts. The next step consists of at least two personal interviews with approved analyst interviewers. We are interested in the applicant's personal and professional qualifications, especially the qualities of honesty and integrity necessary for effective functioning as a psychoanalyst. The review of applicants includes an assessment of their struggles with inner problems and human misfortunes along with their efforts at mastery over them as major factors in being able to understand and help patients. Important characteristics of individuals interested in doing psychoanalytic work include psychological understanding and sensitivity, a capacity for identification with others and an ability for objective observation. The training program aims to foster and integrate these characteristics in the developing psychoanalyst.

The Carter-Jenkins Center is a non-profit 501©(3) educational organization and does not discriminate against applicants on the basis of race, creed, color, sexual orientation, marital status, physical disability or national or ethnic origin in admissions or in administration of its educational programs.
