Preparing the next generation of educators
Following a year-long process of research, focus groups, and deliberation in committees and among the Center's community, the Executive Committee has approved a new devleopmental pathway for those analysts seeking to teach, supervise, and analyze candidates. Under the auspices of the Faculty Advancement Committee (Drs. Bob Glick and Gloria Stern, Co-Chairs) and the Faculty Development Committee (Dr. Deborah Cabaniss, Chair), the Columbia Academny for Psychoanalytic Educators (CAPE) will begin two pilot training programs in the coming months.
These two courses mark a major advance in the Center's approach to developing the academic careers of our graduates and preparing the teachers upon whom the education of our candidates rests.
Those seeking to supervise and analyze candidates will take part in a two-year training program combining monthly seminars, individual supervision, and peer group supervision, all focused on devleoping the skills specific to those roles. Read more about CAPE for those interested in supervising and analyzing candidates here.
Those interested in teaching in our classrooms will be offered a workship in course devlopment and teaching skills combining seminars with actual in-class teaching experience. Read more about CAPE for those interested in classroom teaching here.
