Two- Year​​
​Program
 

This training program is for pre- and post-degree MFT and LCSW interns, pre- and post-degree doctoral interns, and licensed therapists who want specialized training in psychodynamic, relational treatment for women. Our students are an integral part of the WTC community and participate in bi-annual Saturday retreats and agency committees. WTC offers a cohesive training program that includes:

  • Weekly individual supervision from members of the faculty
  • 10 clinical hours per week
  • Thematically-oriented case conferences
  • Professional development group
  • A two-year didactic curriculum, focused on theory and technique of psychodynamic relational therapy within a social and cultural context

The curriculum is organized around the ideals that inform relational psychotherapy, respect for diverse cultures, and principles of social justice.
Participation in WTC’s Two-Year Intensive Training Program requires approximately 20 hours per week. All seminars and administrative meetings take place on Wednesdays, between 9:00 and 4:00 p.m. Accordingly, this time must be reserved. At the Women's Therapy Center, we believe that personal psychotherapy is a critical component of training. As a result,  we recommend that students be in their own personal depth psychotherapy during the course of this program or have extensive personal depth psychotherapy experience.

The Two-Year Intensive Training Program runs from the beginning of September through the end of August. There is no tuition. There are no stipends. An informational meeting is held at our office at the end of February with applications due in late February. Attendance at this meeting is strongly encouraged as it provides a unique opportunity to learn more about the training program as well as a chance to meet some students and faculty.

There are 8 internship positions available in the first year with the expectation that these students will continue and complete the second year of training.

WTC has a rolling admission policy - this means as long as we have openings, we will continue to accept applications.
