The Psychoanalytic Education of CAPA Graduates

Ralph E. Fishkin, D.O.

The CAPA Psychodynamic Psychotherapy Training Program and the evolution of Internet videoconferencing applications have inspired and enabled graduates of its advanced program to seek distance psychoanalytic training, mainly in approved institutes of the American Psychoanalytic Association. Two forms of training, Formal Distance Programs and Distance Accommodation, are described. Distance analytic training presents technical and pedagogical challenges to institutes and to their faculty. Some of the objections to distance education that hamper participation by essential faculty are presented. These issues are discussed and remedies are suggested. With experience, these challenges can be addressed and the training experience becomes satisfying for faculty as well as students. The candidates themselves, in two letters, describe their positive experiences in simultaneous training. A sample of clinical work brought to supervision by a distance candidate in the early years of training is presented to give some sense of the aptitude for psychoanalytic work that exists among distance candidates. Some preliminary thoughts about the variations in the psychoanalytic processes are raised and will need to be supplemented by further experience.
