History of psychoanalysis
Psychoanalytic training

The Columbia University Center for Psychoanalytic Training and Research was founded in 1945. It is part of the Department of Psychiatry of the College of Physicians and Surgeons, and offers psychoanalytic training to psychiatrists, psychologists and other mental health professionals, while offering low-cost psychoanalytic psychotherapy to people in New York. Its training programs include adult psychoanalysis, child and adolescent psychoanalysis, and infant, child and adolescent psychoanalytic psychotherapy.[1]

Faculty members include psychiatrists and psychologists who specialize in American object relations theory, ego psychology, self psychology, Kleinian theory, attachment theory and neuropsychoanalysis.[2] Several current or former members of its faculty are well known within psychoanalysis and psychiatry, including Fredric Busch, Susan Coates, Arnold Cooper, Norman Doidge, Robert Glick, Richard Isay, Otto Kernberg, Roger MacKinnon, Robert Michels, Robert Pollack, Sandor Rado, Roy Schafer, Daniel Schechter, Theodore Shapiro, Robert Spitzer, and Daniel Stern.

The center's trainees are mostly psychiatrists. The curriculum averages 5-7 years and generally begins after the candidate has completed all other training (e.g., a psychiatry residency for physicians and clinical internships for psychologists). Candidates attend classes, conduct analyses, obtain supervision, and undergo their own analysis.
