The Fellowship Program at Austen Riggs
The Austen Riggs Center has been a training institution since 1924, and a pioneer in the theory and technique of psychoanalytic treatment with complex psychiatric patients. Organized under the Center's Erikson Institute for Education and Research, our training takes a systems perspective on treatment, emphasizing cultural and familial contexts as well as individual development, in the tradition of Erik Erikson. We offer a full-time four-year Fellowship Program for both psychologists and psychiatrists. Psychiatrists are also eligible to apply for a two-year Fellowship. The four-year Fellowship program is fully accredited as a psychoanalytic training program by the Accreditation Council of Psychoanalytic Education (ACPEinc.).
Jane G. Tillman, PhD, the director of the Erikson Institute provides an overview of the Fellowship in this video.
