Psychoanalytic training covers a number of areas and has certain requirements of candidates. While there are basic and standard requirements, training is modified and changed from time to time. This is a dynamic view of the training process that is constantly influenced by developments in the field of psychoanalysis. These training requirements are an important statement of purpose which reflects the Institute’s present conceptualization of the training process as well as the philosophy of the Society and the Institute. This statement of purpose also sets the stage for changes that may occur in training in the future.
The psychoanalytic training of new candidates, who will eventually join the Society, is the central goal of the Institute and the main responsibility of the Training Committee. The future of the Psychoanalytic Society and its character are very much shaped by the way candidates who enter the Institute were trained. Every candidate is important to us, for in their hands lies the future of psychoanalysis in Israel.
