Brookhaven Institute for Psychoanalysis and Christian Theology (BIPACT)
One Year Program: Introduction to Psychoanalytic Theory
This track does not lead to certification. However, it is formulated to convert to a two year or three year program. This program is offered bi-yearly on even years, i.e. 2014, 2016, etc. Note: if a candidate does plan to convert to a two or three year program, the candidate needs to begin their analysis at the corresponding rate of two sessions per week for the two year program or three sessions per week for the three year program. CANDIDATES WHO ANTICIPATE COMPLETION OF THE THREE-YEAR CERTIFICATE TRACK MUST HAVE THEIR ANALYSIS WITH A CERTIFIED PSYCHOANALYST.
