CANDIDATE HANDBOOK                                                 PLEASE NOTE NEW ADDRESS:                                    13919 CARROLLWOOD VILLAGE RUN,                     TAMPA, FL 33618  

TBIPS is so pleased that you are planning to or have already agreed to join us on this journey to become an analytic therapist, to explore and experience greater psychoanalytic understanding and relationship with those who seek you out to relieve their suffering. 

 Candidates are those perspicacious students who apply for training, enter into personal treatment, and participate in supervison of their control cases. An applicaton process and  interviews are necessary to obtain candidate status. Clinical candidates must be licensed in their respective states and show proof of malpractice insurance. Academic candiates do not require license and insurance as they particpate in didactics and personal treatment but do not engage in treatment of their own patients. While all interested parties are welcome to take individual course, priority seating is reserved for candidates. Students are those who take courses without  applying for candidacy, that is, who do not choose immersion by engaging in their own personal treatment and who do not  choose supervision of cases. Below you will find information from TBIPS' Educational Polices and Procedures (EPP) to assist you in applying for and moving through your training.

                b) a minimum of five years of post-graduate (psychoanalytic) experience.

2. If an analyst does not meet criterion 1b, the Board may review the circumstances and elect to accept the analyst as an approved provider of the therapeutic analysis training requirement with the stipulation that the analysts seek ongoing consultation with an analyst who meets all criteria specified in #1. Additionally, the consulting analyst must be located outside of the geographical area in order to protect the confidentiality of the candidate.

 

 

EPP-410     Supervised Control Cases

               

1. Each candidate is required to have at least two separate analytic cases under the supervision of two different supervising psychoanalysts or psychoanalytic psychotherapists for a minimum of at least two years duration each.

 

2. Candidates are eligible to begin a control case after 3 quarters of didactic training and personal psychoanalysis for analytic candidates or personal psychoanalytic psychotherapy for psychotherapy candidates. Advisors will assist candidates in determining readiness to begin their control case. 

 

3. After at least six months of demonstrated competence with the first control case, a request to begin a second control case may be initiated by the candidate following the same procedure as specified for requesting approval for the first control case. 

 

4. Frequency of analysis for control cases should fall in the range of three to five times weekly for analytic candidates, two to three times weekly for analytic psychotherapy candidates.  For analytic candidates However, since frequency does not per se define the psychoanalytic process, a candidate may begin their control case at a frequency of twice weekly with the goal of analyzing the meaning of frequency within the analysis and increasing to the required three to five times weekly. Likewise, for analytic psychotherapy candidates, a candidate may begin their control case at a frequency of once weekly with the goal of analyzing the meaning of frequency within the analysis and increasing to the required two to three times weekly.   In such cases, the time spent working at a lesser frequency prior to the increase in sessions will count towards the training requirement of two years duration as long as the case is under supervision by a qualified supervising analyst or therapist.

 

5. Frequency of supervision must be a minimum of at least once weekly.

 

6. After the initial three months, a written case summary must be prepared with a focus on analyzability.  A summary should be prepared every six months thereafter until graduation.  A copy of the summary should be submitted to the Supervisor, Training Coordinator, Advisor, and candidate record within thirty days of the specified 3 month and 6 month intervals.

 

7 The supervisor will provide written feedback on each summary submitted by the candidate within three weeks.  Supervisors also provide written feedback to the candidate and Institute (copies to be forwarded to the Training Coordinator, Advisor, and Student Record) after the initial three months and every six months thereafter.

 

8 Completion of the requirements for the Supervised Analytic Cases component will include demonstration of adequate understanding of the implementation of the analytic process at a Case Presentation Evaluation as described in EPP-610.

 

 

 

EPP-412    Supervised Control Case Approval      

1. The candidate will initiate a request to begin a control case by completing the Request to Begin Control Case form (see Form G) and submitting to their Advisor. 

2. The Advisor will review the request and make a recommendation based on evaluations of the candidate’s performance in didactic classes. Additionally, if the request concerns beginning a second control case and/or if the candidate is receiving supervision on a psychotherapy case, the evaluations and recommendations of the existing supervisor(s) will be reviewed and considered in the Advisor’s recommendation.

3. The Advisor’s recommendations will be noted on the candidate’s Request to Begin Control Case form (see Form G) and submitted to the local faculty from the Faculty Committee who have taught that candidate at sometime in the past and/or have participated in Clinical Case conference.

5. The Faculty as specified in #3 above will have a maximum of thirty days to review the request, vote on the outcome, and notify the candidate through the candidate’s advisor.

6. The Training Coordinator will sign the completed request and submit it into the candidate’s record.

EPP-440     Didactic Training Component

1. Courses are taught weekly and run from September through June, each class               approximately ninety minutes in length.  Courses are typically scheduled in 4 eight week "quarters". An academic year spans thirty-two weeks.  Candidates are expected to attend a minimum of 350 hours of didactic seminars.

               

2. After completing the initial 16 weeks (two "quarters") of classes, candidates will have the opportunity to work collaboratively with the faculty assigned to each course and to provide feedback and suggestions regarding the course planning, content, structure, and assigned readings.

 

3. Faculty for each course will provide candidates with a provisional written course syllabus at least 4 weeks prior to the start of each class.  Candidates will have the        opportunity to discuss the syllabus and course objectives with the faculty and provide suggestions. This process provides candidates with "situated learning" opportunities regarding course construction and development that may further facilitate didactic and professional development of candidates and faculty.

 

4. Upon completion of a course, each faculty member for the course will complete a progress evaluation (Form D) for each candidate in a timely manner (as described in EPP -500). A copy of the evaluation will be provided to the candidate by the faculty member in an individual feedback session, usually held during the last meeting of the     course. An additional copy will be maintained by TBIPS in the candidate's file. The Training Coordinator will ensure that the evaluation process is completed in a timely    manner.

 

5. Upon completion of a course, each candidate will complete a course evaluation form (Form F) for each faculty member (as described in EPP-510).  Course evaluation forms will be provided to administrative personal of TBIPS and compiled anonymously into a written feedback summary for each faculty member. Copies of feedback summaries will be provided to the Training Coordinator of the relevant program and to the President of the Board of TBIPS.

6. All candidates will have the option to choose to take an Independent Study if they do  not wish to participate in a course taught by their Therapeutic Analyst.          

 

 

 

 

EPP-500   Evaluation of Candidates

 

               

1. Candidates receive written and verbal progress evaluations at multiple points throughout their training. Copies of all formal written evaluations and progress reports will be maintained in the TBIPS candidate file, provided to the candidate's adviser, and       provided to the candidate at the time of evaluation.

 

2. Throughout training, the candidate meets to discuss problems, concerns, and their progress with their individual adviser. Meetings may be initiated by candidate or adviser with the time and place to be arranged between the two. The adviser is a faculty member of TBIPS chosen by the candidate at the beginning of training, or later, in the event that a candidate requests a change in adviser. The adviser may not be the candidate's personal psychoanalyst or psychotherapist, past or present, or a present supervisor.   

 

3. The adviser does not act as an evaluater of the student's progress except as in the capacity of individual course instructor.  The role of the adviser is to facilitate the candidate’s progress through training and help the candidate develop professionally, capitalizing on the candidate’s strengths and identifying weaknesses.  Candidates’ requests to speak confidentially with their adviser will be honored.

               

4. Additionally, candidates may speak with the Training Coordinator or members of the Faculty regarding training issues at any time.

 

5. Candidates will receive a written progress evaluation (Form D) from each faculty member within two weeks of the completion of each course.  The progress evaluation will be provided to candidates in individual meetings.  In some circumstances, such as faculty residing out of the geographical area, individual progress evaluation meetings may take place by telephone.

 

6. For clinical candidates, supervisors will complete a written progress evaluation (Form E) after the initial three months and for every six months thereafter. The progress evaluation will be provided to candidates in individual meetings.  In some circumstances, such as supervisors residing out of the geographical area, individual progress evaluation meetings may   take place by telephone. 

 

7. A candidate's adviser will meet with them at the end of each academic year to provide a review of their evaluations and progress towards individual and institutional goals.

EPP-600

Subject: Graduation Requirements

Purpose: To specify the requirements for graduation from the psychoanalytic program

REQUIREMENTS:

1.       Candidates in the Clinical Track will need to satisfactorily complete the requirements for the three components of training:

                a) Didactic Course of study

                b) Personal Therapeutic Analysis and

                c) Supervised Analytic cases (as described in EPP-400, EPP-410, and EPP 420).

 Upon completion of the requirements for all three components, the candidate is awarded a Certificate in Psychoanalysis.

2.       Since progression and any necessary steps toward remediation have been monitored throughout the candidate’s career at the Institute, graduation is a matter of satisfactory completion of the requirements.  The only other potential grounds for remedial action or dismissal would be evidence of unethical or unprofessional conduct.

3.       Completion of the requirements for the Supervised Analytic Cases component will include demonstration of adequate understanding ofthe implementation of the analytic process at a Case Presentation Evaluation as described in EPP-610.

4.       Candidates in the Academic Track will need to satisfactorily complete the requirements of two components:

a) Didactic Course of Study and

 b) Personal Therapeutic Analysis (as described in EP-400 and EPP-420) as well the completion of an academic paper on a subject of the candidate’s choice which is suitable for publication as described in EPP-610.

Upon completion of the requirements for each of the three components, the candidate is awarded a Certificate in Academic Psychoanalysis.

EPP-610

Subject: Graduation Procedures for Candidates

Purpose: To specify the procedures for graduation from the psychoanalytic program

PROCEDURES:

1.       When Candidates in the Clinical Track feel ready to graduate, they inform the Coordinator of the Psychoanalytic Program. He/she will then appoint a Graduation Committee composed of two local members of the Faculty (see EPP-620). The Graduation Committee will gather all of the relevant information on the Candidate’s completion of requirements and present its findings to the Faculty.

 

2.       The Graduation Committee will arrange for the Case Presentation Evaluation. The Case Evaluation Examiners shall be three analysts not of the local Faculty, one which may be picked by the candidate. The candidate shall present a written case report of one case in psychoanalysis lasting at least two years. In addition, an oral evaluation may be conducted by the examiners by telephone or in person. The examiners shall submit a brief written report of their findings.

 

3.       The Graduation Committee shall report its findings to the Faculty at a regular or special meeting.  The Candidate will graduate upon a majority vote of the Faculty

 

4.       Candidates in the Academic Track follow the same procedures as those in the Clinical Track except that there is no Clinical Case Evaluation. In its place is the Academic Paper Requirement. This paper will be submitted to three Academic Evaluation Examiners not on the local faculty, one of whom may be chosen by the candidate, for evaluation. The examiners will each submit a written report to the Graduation Committee.

5.       Graduation of the Academic Track candidate will take place upon a vote of a majority of the Faculty.

EPP-620

Subject:                               Final Case Report Evaluation

Purpose:                              To describe the orientation to the Final Case Report and its evaluation

Procedures:

1.       The final case report consists of a clinical process account of an analysis of at least two years duration.

2.       There is no particular format to this report nor a required length.

3.       The purpose of the report is to demonstrate that the candidate was able to establish a psychoanalytic process and to deal with it in a psychoanalytic fashion. Candidates must demonstrate a psychoanalytic understanding of the case, an analytic attitude with the patient, competence with psychoanalytic techniques, and the management of such countertransference issues that might arise.

4.       Since candidates are not required to adhere to one particular psychoanalytic model, the report must be evaluated within the psychoanalytic model of psychoanalytic theory and technique adopted by the candidate/supervisor pair. The evaluation proceeds as an evaluation of competence within that model.

5.       An oral evaluation will be conducted by the examiners by telephone or in person. The examiners shall submit a brief written report of their findings to the Adviser.
