The CCP Fellowship Program is designed for all who wish to deepen their knowledge of psychoanalytic theory and practice. It addresses the needs of both practicing clinicians and graduate and post-graduate students, and is thus tailored to meet the different developmental levels of individuals who are interested in beginning –as well as furthering– their psychoanalytic experience. The Fellowship Program is informal and supportive, and includes individual mentoring, small group monthly discussions, and public lectures.
Who should apply?
Practicing clinicians and graduate or postgraduate students in clinical psychology, social work, psychiatry, and related fields.
Components of the Program
Each fellow meets monthly throughout the academic year with an assigned mentor to discuss readings, clinical material and other topics of interest.
Fellows come together in small groups 8-10 times per year. Meetings generally take place on Sundays and are held in the office or home of the group leader.
All fellows join CCP candidates and the interested public to hear lectures given by visiting and local faculty through CCP’s Fridays@CCP and Sundays@CCP. The Friday evening series features outstanding psychoanalysts (from across the US and abroad) who are invited to teach CCP candidates enrolled in our Training Program in Psychoanalysis or to present related ideas of interest to the analytic community. The Sunday mid-day series provides a forum for individual presentations covering a range of topics of interest to the greater psychoanalytic community of Chicago.
Participation in all three areas of the program is essential.
For more information about these events, visit our Lecture Series page.
What does it cost?
Upon acceptance, fellows must become CCP Members. The annual membership fee for Fellows is $75 and includes admission to all CCP events and a 10% reduction in fees for study groups under the auspices of CCP. There are no charges for the fellowship program.
What is the application process?
Applicants should submit a current CV, two letters of recommendation written by a teacher or supervisor, and a personal statement of interest in psychoanlysis or psychoanalytic theory and therapy. Email all materials to Toula Kouliouros-Kalven, our Administrative Director (firstname.lastname@example.org). For further information, contact the Fellowship Co-Chairs, Sandra Ullmann (email@example.com) and Julia Brown (firstname.lastname@example.org).
When are applications due?
Applications for the 2013-14 Fellowship Program in Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis will be accepted beginning April 1, 2013 and must be received by August 1, 2013. Applications will be read on a rolling basis, with notification of acceptance following approximately two weeks after the completed application has been received. New fellows will receive program details by the end of August, including the names of their mentors and small group assignments.
Ongoing Fellowship opportunities
Ongoing Fellows may choose any or all of the following: continuing individual mentorship, advanced small group participation, and participation in Fridays@CCP Lecture Series. There is no application required for participation, but Ongoing Fellows must re-join CCP each year, paying the Fellowship membership fee of $75. This membership also includes admission to CCP events (Fridays and Sundays@CCP). As always, current and ongoing Fellows are invited to continue according to their individual desires and needs.
