Dr. Lynn,
Do you have any thoughts on seeking psychotherapy treatment from a training institute?
My thinking is that it would be financially more feasible than seeing someone in private practice.
The clinic in my neighborhood does not staff any psychologists, only social workers. And I would like to work with someone who has extensive training in clinical psychology. A private therapist is too costly for me. A few years ago I saw an excellent therapist, I went from a borderline to a 'recovered' borderline, thank G-d. We did mostly psychodynamic work; however, I am now unable to see him because he relocated to overseas.
It is my understanding that one of the factors contributing to the success of our work was the quality of his training,
So, I'm entertaining the possibility of treatment at a training institute. I don't know exactly how it works, in terms of admission for treatment, etc. Too, I wonder whether my thought about treatment at a training institute is off the mark, or am I on the right track....and if it isn't, there are so many to choose from, where would I begin? (I'm in NY and within driving distance of Manhattan)
Thank you very much in advance!

I am Dr. Lynn but am using a different screen name to be able to reply to you. Training institutes are an excellent way to get cost effective treatment. I would recommend post-doctoral programs such as Ackerman or White Institute, etc., so that you will get a more experienced clinician.

Welcome back, PsychDoc! First off, I'm glad you're back, I missed your wise input! Second, I think your new sn is more appropriate....boundary-wise... Third, in receiving treatment at a training institute would that mean I get to see someone for a year and then switch to another therapist? I mean, how long does one remain in training at the same place?

Sorry to keep changing names. It depends on the Institute and how rapidly they are going through the program (ie- at a place like White, there is a full-time track and a part-time track). Most people are there for at least a couple of years. And, some patients stay with their therapists after they graduate.
