Child/Adolescent Training Curriculum
Child/Adolescent candidates who are currently enrolled in the Adult Program or have graduated from the Adult Program will take the combined Child Curriculum (listed on this page).
Child/Adolescent candidates who are enrolled in stand-alone child training will take the full First and Second Year Adult Curriculum. In the Third Year, candidates will take a sequence of 3 courses in the Adult Curriculum on Monday evenings: Gender, Sexuality and Perversion, and Universal Fantasies and also begin the combined Child Curriculum (listed on this page) on Thursday evenings. If Course ChA. 11 is not being given in a particular year, then candidates will take the alternating Child/Adult Continuous Case Conference in the Third Year Adult Curriculum instead. In the Fourth Year the candidate will only be required to take the combined Child Curriculum on Thursday evenings. All non-required courses are available as electives for stand-alone child candidates.
