Why Earn Your Certificate in Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy at Adelphi University in New York?

The Postdoctoral Psychology Fellowship provides psychologists with training and professional experience leading to the fulfillment of New York State licensure as a psychologist. Candidates may choose between training in adult psychoanalysis and psychotherapy or in child, adolescent, and family therapy. This is a part-time (20 hours/week) position and extends over two years. The following four components will comprise the fellowship:

  • Direct clinical work with 4-5 psychotherapy patients and approximately one or two clinical intakes per week for which Fellows will be paid on a fee for service basis.
  • Attending two years of classes in either the Postgraduate Program in Psychoanalysis and Psychotherapy or the Postgraduate Program in Child and Adolescent Psychotherapy with a full tuition waiver.
  • Weekly, psychodynamically oriented individual supervision and monthly group supervision.
  • Teaching two classes per semester in the undergraduate psychology or masters-level Mental Health Counseling Program. Fellows will be paid at the University adjunct rate.

All experience will count towards New York State licensing requirements. In addition, all classes, supervision, and clinical experience obtained during the Fellowship will be credited towards certification in our programs.
