Teaching

 

CAPA teaching is done on a volunteer basis. Several hundred CAPA faculty from all over the world who find the teaching experience very rewarding, and the students a joy to work with. 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. During each ten week trimester there is a Technique course, a Theory Course, and a Continuous Case Conference. If you are interested in becoming a teacher, please contact Toni Maeck at toni.maeck.capa@gmail.com.

Treatment

 

CCAPA students apply to be matched with a CAPA treater for low fee psychotherapy or psychoanalysis. Most of them are in treatment by the end of the first year. Treaters and students meet at mutually agreeable times, usually on Zoom. Students and Treaters negotiate the fee together and the Students pay their Treaters directly. If you are interested in becoming a Treater, please contact the Director of Treatment, Dr. Lana Fishkin, at  lanafishkinmd@gmail.com

Supervision

CAPA supervision is pro bono and is part of the student’s tuition. Supervision is one or two years long (September-June) with major holidays and parts of 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. CAPA supervisors find the experience rewarding and enriching. If you are interested in becoming a supervisor, please contact Catherine Stankowski at catherine.stankowski.capa@gmail.com.
