Early Career Professionals   

CSPP extends a warm welcome to mental health professionals just starting out their careers. You don't need any previous training in psychoanalytic theory, just an interest and curiosity. We understand that the first years of getting established can feel stressful in a number of ways. CSPP recognizes this with reduced member dues for graduate students (student membership) through the first seven years after graduation (early career membership). 

Graduate students, postdocs, and psychoanalytic candidates pay only $20 a year for membership and reduced rates for all events. For the first seven years after obtaining a graduate degree, CSPP membership is only $50 a year. 

In addition, CSPP's Early Career Initiative provides educational and professional development assistance for psychoanalytically-minded clinicians who are new to our organization and/or those just entering our field. We offer mentoring on a one-to-one basis and special programs to inform new members of developments and the changing demands which influence our work.

For additional Information, or to find out how you can participate in our mentorship program,
