Testimonials from Four year current and past candidates

“I’m very satisfied with the training and professional development that the Institute for Contemporary Psychotherapy provides.  In my time at ICP (first as a candidate in the 2-year program and now as a candidate in the 4-year program), I’ve benefited immeasurably.  The challenging courses, inspired instructors, lively discussions in classes and supervision groups, and the opportunity to work with bright, supportive supervisors have all facilitated my development as a clinician.”
Balin Anderson, LCSW -3rd yr 

“My experience in the 4yr program has impacted my life and my work in ways I could not have imagined. More than a training program, this is a community that continues to help me know myself and my ways of being with others in a profound way. Rather than learning tools and interventions, analytic training has helped me learn how to use my self in relation to others. With the support of thoughtful peers and teachers, my confidence and self awareness have grown and I find increasingly more joy in my work as a psychotherapist.”
– Vanessa Jackson, LCSW -4th yr 

“Although I came to ICP with a Ph.D in English, and a MSW, I found my experience in the ICP Four-Year Training Program to be the most expansive educational experience of my life. It brought me into a richly supportive community of fellow students, faculty and staff, all devoted to serving its diverse patient population.”
– Neil Grill, LMSW alum 2012
