Advanced Clinical Practice
From the Director
“The spirit of the Advanced Clinical Practice Certificate Program as articulated by its founding director, the late Dr. Eda Goldstein, remains applicable: ‘The Post-Master’s Certificate Program in Advanced Clinical Practice presents students with the most cutting-edge, contemporary psycho- analytic/psychodynamic theories and their practice application to a wide range of clients and client problems. The program is very user-friendly, and what students learn about the treatment process is invaluable. Student evaluations reveal that the instructors challenge them to think more critically and help them to grow as clinicians.'"

The learning experiences have proven to be invaluable in helping my clients, both at work and in private practice."
