Training Schools and Pre-Clinical Courses


Child and Adolescent Psychoanalytic Psychotherapists (CAPPTs) use their specialist skills and knowledge to work with infants, children and young people up to age 25, and their families. This page contains information on the range of pre-clinical courses and the centres providing clinical trainings in Child and Adolescent Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy. Completion of a pre-clinical course is one of the requirements for application to undertake the clinical training. You should discuss with each course how it helps students to meet those requirements which are described in more detail on the How to Train as a CAPPT page.
