Noon Eastern Time / 9AM Pacific Time
Towards Transparency and Integrity in Analytic Training
The American Association for Psychoanalytic Education (AAPE), and
The Psychoanalytic Association of New York (PANY)
On Sunday, March 3rd, Arden Rothstein, PhD, will present a webinar based on her paper "Fostering the Educational Value of Candidate Evaluation," (International Journal of Psychoanalysis, 2017, 98: pp.1641-1668), an abstract of which appears below.
She will present one institute's complex process of developing and implementing frameworks for assessing a candidate’s progress. In assessing progression within the framework of well-defined standards – in keeping with AAPE’s model of analytic training -- candidates have been able to collaborate more actively in their psychoanalytic education. Dr. Rothstein draws from her eight years’ experience as Chair of Student Progression at PANY and IPE (Institute for Psychoanalytic Education affiliated with NYU School of Medicine).
The webinar will be broadcast on Zoom, a web-based platform for videoconferencing. Live participants will have the opportunity to participate in the question and answer period and be invited to present challenging candidate situations and/or conflicts that arise among faculty in the course of progression discussions and decisions. To participate, sign up in advance now: https://zoom.us/j/835173532
The webinar will be also archived, for later viewing, if you are not able to log on during the live presentation.
In addition, AAPE and PANY, co-sponsors of this event, will host CME opportunities for participants.
Abstract of paper:
Approaches to fostering the educational value of candidate evaluation are presented, in view of the plethora of intra-psychic challenges that combine with many other complexities of learning to work as an analyst. Four integrally interrelated practices have been found to address sensitivities inherent in candidates’ experience of training in general, and being evaluated in particular. When applied in concert, the institute’s evaluative process not only becomes more considered, but also better promotes a psychoanalytic attitude and minimizes the intrusion of evaluators’ personal responses. The first is defining and employing in synergy criteria for clinical immersion based on demonstration of the development and deepening of an analytic process, as well as the development of psychoanalytic competencies. The second is mandating institute-wide application of guidelines for assessment of progression/graduation that are clearly explicated to all candidates and faculty. The third is transparent and timely communication between candidates and their supervisors and progression advisors regarding progress essential to a sense of collaboration. Fourth the progression review process must be systematic and in-depth, with built-in consultative relationships serving as checks and balances on personal elements. The implementation and educational impact of these practices are considered in the case of one candidate.
