About Psychoanalytic Essentials

On-line and In-person Continuing Education Workshops

My continuing education program, Psychoanalytic Essentials, is designed to help mental health providers develop and improve their competence and skills in the practice of psychotherapy with a psychoanalytic lens. Professionals can participate in courses that delve into psychoanalytic theory and technique, informed by contemporary models of psychoanalysis in the British object relations tradition.

Most of the Psychoanalytic Essentials courses are offered in a small group format, 8-12 people, either live on-line or in-person. This format offers an engaging learning experience, a “working seminar” that allows for interaction and values the clinical experiences of all participants.

Jennifer Kunst, PhD is approved by the California Psychological Association (CPA) to provide continuing professional education for psychologists. The California Board of Behavioral Sciences also recognizes CPA’s continuing education credits for use by their mental health professional licensees. Learn more about my CPA provider accreditation, including information about its mission, complaint and refund policies, disability accommodations, and diversity statement here.
