Teach, Treat, and Supervise with CAPA

CAPA members have the opportunity to teach, treat, and supervise our wonderful students. Please find below more information about each program. Anyone interested in these roles should please join CAPA here to become an official member of our community. For general inquiries regarding volunteering with CAPA, please contact Elise Synder at elise.snyder@yale.edu or Catherine Stankowski at catherine.stankowski.capa@gmail.com.



CAPA teaching is done on a volunteer basis, and there are several hundred CAPA faculty from all over the world who find the teaching experience very rewarding, and the students a joy to work with. Our instructors teach weekly on Zoom for 75 minutes per session, usually in 10-week sections. We provide all of the materials needed to teach each course, including the syllabus, readings, and tech support. We currently have courses open for the fall, winter, and spring trimesters in Technique, Theory, and Continuous Case Conference for the 2021-22 academic year. If you are interested in becoming a teacher, please contact Toni Maeck at toni.maeck.capa@gmail.com.



CAPA students may apply to be matched with a CAPA treater for low fee psychotherapy or psychoanalysis. Treaters and students meet at mutually agreeable times, typically on Zoom or Skype, and students pay treaters directly for their work together. If you are interested in becoming a treater, please contact our Director of Treatment, Dr. Lana Fishkin, at lanafishkinmd@gmail.com


CAPA supervision is pro bono, and lasts for 2 academic years (September-June) with major holidays and summers off. During this time, we expect that supervision matches will meet for a minimum of 30 sessions each academic year- once per week, with time off for holidays and the summer. CAPA students are highly qualified, dedicated, and eager to learn, and our supervisors find the experience rewarding and enriching- as well as occasionally challenging! If you are interested in becoming a supervisor, please contact Saunia Powell at saunia.powell.capa@gmail.com.
