It is ACAP, the Academy of Clinical and Applied Psychoanalysis -- a place for continuing education, professional development, psychodynamic training, counseling degrees, and personal growth. For over 30 years ACAP, a nationally accredited Modern Psychoanalytic Institute, has been in the forefront of training in psychoanalysis. Graduates go on to be psychoanalytic educators and supervisors, private practitioners, hospital and university faculty and administrators, writers, artists, filmmakers and organizational leaders.
Other learning opportunities are offered in addition to the certificate program - there’s the One-Year program, the Trauma & Resilience program, and, most recently, BGSP-NJ. ACAP is now a branch campus of the Boston Graduate School of Psychoanalysis and offers two new Masters degrees: the Master of Arts in Psychoanalytic Counseling and the Master of Arts in Psychoanalysis.
There has long been a psychoanalytic training program where people from all walks of life and disciplines come and study, sometimes to take a course here and there, other times working towards becoming a Nationally Certified Psychoanalyst. Students come from different walks of life - of course people in the mental health fields, but also clergy, musicians, lawyers, teachers, computer scientists, writers, parents, and business people, in fact anyone from any field.
