Advanced Clinical Training

We foster clinical excellence on our team and in the community by providing continuing education, clinical training and supervision around psychodynamic work. Our ongoing professional development programs inspire clinicians throughout their careers, from graduation to retirement and beyond.

CCC seeks diversity in our applicants. We value difference and inclusion in our efforts to better serve clients, enrich our professional selves, and to be a setting within the Chicago mental health community that accurately represents our city.

 

 

The Fellows Program and the Post-Graduate Psychotherapy Training Program at Cathedral Counseling Center are designed for licensed mental health professionals with at least two years of clinical experience. Participants gain increased clinical competence through supervision and didactic seminars.
