Описание программы: 
This is the main 3-year program of the Institute, designed to provide fundamental practical knowledge, skills and strategies for psychological counseling and psychodynamic psychotherapy. Students have the opportunity to enroll in a 3-year program at once, which we would recommend, or to go sequentially trough the initial 1.5-year program "Psychological counseling and psychotherapy", and then the final 1.5-year program "Fundamentals of psychodynamic psychotherapy".
The 3-year training program is a consistently built, holistic program in psychological counseling and psychotherapy based on 25 years of experience in training psychoanalytically oriented counseling psychologists and psychotherapists at the Institute of Practical Psychology and Psychoanalysis.
Within the framework of this training program, the Institute implements a fundamentally new model for training practicing psychologists in our country, combining training and practice with personal and professional growth of students. Classes are held in the form of lectures, theoretical seminars, skills training, workshops, sessions of viewing and discussing videos of psychotherapy work, as well as clinical seminars on analysis of clinical cases from the teachers' psychotherapy practice. Students have the opportunity to reinforce their knowledge and skills through practical work with real clients on the basis of the Institute's practice. In terms of this program, special attention is paid to the regular group supervision of the practical experience of the students.
The teachers of the program are practicing psychotherapists with many years of experience. They represent the most recognized domestic and foreign professional communities: Society of psychoanalytic psychotherapy, Moscow psychoanalytic society, European federation of psychoanalytic psychotherapy, and International psychoanalytic association.
Our goal is to train qualified specialists in psychological counseling and psychodynamic psychotherapy. Graduates of this program can work as counseling psychologists in various government institutions and organizations, as well as private practitioners.
Practical training for all students in the retraining program:
In the course of the program, students undergo practical training in telephone counseling at the Center of psychological assistance "Yaroslavna", in psychological assistance to parents of seriously ill children at clinics, and in psychological counseling at the Psychological counseling center of the Institute.
Upon the training completion, the graduates receive a diploma of professional retraining.
