Ann Smolen, PhD
The subtle meanings of a child’s or adolescent’s inner world are often overlooked in many treatments. Our four-year program provides an in-depth understanding of this inner world. It explores the principles and techniques essential to child psychoanalytic psychotherapy and child psychoanalysis through a comprehensive understanding of various models of the mind, developmental perspectives, as well as clinical assessment and technique from an analytic point of view.
