Palo Alto Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy Training Program (PAPPTP)

Fellowship Year

The PAPPTP Fellowship Year brings psychoanalytic ideas and methods to life by offering you a window into how experienced psychoanalytic psychotherapists work. In three 7-week segments, senior faculty will present to you their work with adults and children, showing how they foster experiences that lessen suffering and promote growth. It is designed for psychotherapy students, interns, therapists newly in practice, and experienced therapists who want a rich and stimulating exposure to psychoanalytic psychotherapy.

Classes meet Fridays, 10:30 a.m. to 11:50 a.m., October 9, 2020, through April 9, 2021. Graduates of the Fellowship Year often go on to apply to the Two-Year Program.

Location: As of September 2022, hybrid classes (in person and via Zoom) will be offered at the Stanford Psychiatry Building, 401 Quarry Road, Palo Alto.

Tuition: There is no tuition or registration fee.

Requirement: You must have a California professional license or be registered with the State as an “Associate” (MFT and Social Work trainees), “Assistant” (Psychology trainees), or Postgraduate Trainee (Resident).

To Register:

or call the San Francisco Center for Psychoanalysis at 415-563-5815.
