Open Houses: Spring 2015

For Prospective Candidates interested in PPSC’s 1-year, 3-year, 4-year, and licence qualifying programs in Psychoanalysis

We welcome you to attend our OPEN HOUSE on Friday, April 24, 2015 from 7:00-9:00 pm.  The Open House will begin with an information session. In the first hour you’ll hear from our Executive Director, Dean of Admissions, Directors of Training and our Treatment Service.   It is an opportunity to learn about our various training programs and ask questions.  The second part of the Open House is more informal. Have a bite to eat and mingle and talk with people in these leadership roles, as well as with other faculty members,  supervisors, and current candidates.  It’s a great way to get a feel for our community.

Additionally, attending an Open House qualifies you for free admission to all PPSC events, including the PPSC Annex lecture series.
