Programme Overview

The first and only Master's Programme in Clinical Psychoanalysis and Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy in Russia which introduces an innovative educational process with continuous practical workshops rather than more traditional lectures and seminars.

Mission of the Programme

Our mission is to сreate a professional school of Russian Psychoanalysis, bringing together representatives of various psychoanalytic approaches and training a new generation of psychoanalytic psychotherapists who think creatively and feel deeply.

The programme is unique due to its strong focus on students’ ability to use psychoanalytic tools, basic secrets of analytical thinking and feeling, understanding sensitive movements of the psychoanalytic process and the existence of the unconscious both in the inner world of man and in therapist – patient relationships.

Principles and Values of the Programme

  • Openness: the union of the best representatives of different schools of psychoanalysis, a large-scale programme of seminars and master-classes with leading foreign experts, the newest techniques and practices of teaching.
  • Integration: the synergy of different psychoanalytic approaches, integration of understanding and practice of the psychoanalytic process, creation of a unified professional field.
