Supervision of Student Research Psychoanalysts

Registered student research psychoanalysts may practice psychoanalysis under the supervision of a graduate psychoanalyst who has a minimum of five years of postgraduate clinical experience in psychoanalysis following completion of his or her psychoanalytic education.

The supervising psychoanalyst must provide individual supervision of each student for a minimum of one hour for each week per case of patient psychoanalysis for the first year of supervision, and no less than 1 hour per case each month thereafter. A minimum of 50 hours of supervision must be provided for each case for a total of 150 hours of supervision during training. The supervising psychoanalyst may supervise no more students than, in the judgment of the training institute, can be effectively supervised.
