Florida Psychoanalytic Center

Advanced Clinical Seminars

Director: Gina Joy Reyes, Psy.D.

The Advanced Clinical Seminars are designed for clinicians who are at an intermediate to advanced level of theoretical background and clinical experience in psychoanalysis and psychoanalytic psychotherapy. The purpose of the seminars is to offer continued learning to clinicians who have either completed the PPC or been trained in psychoanalytic theory and technique in other settings but do not feel full training in psychoanalysis is right for them at this time.

Support Network

The seminars offer a venue for attendees to meet other analytically oriented therapists and analysts in the community and to potentially expand their collegial support networks and referral base. This collegial setting can feel vitalizing and supportive, especially given what can be the isolated nature of clinical practice and the intensity of our work.

Program Structure

Each seminar consists of four sessions, 90 minutes each, offered on Thursday evenings from 7.30 to 9.00, EST. There are 3 – 4 seminars offered each year. You can choose to attend all or only some of the seminars. All seminars are conducted by Zoom.

Seminar Format

Each series of seminars is conducted by a different analyst or pair of analysts. For some seminars, the same analyst(s) will teach all 4 meetings. For other seminars, one analyst may teach two and another teach two. Each analyst teaching a seminar has leeway to create the seminar in any way they wish. Analysts may present a case for discussion, or offer live supervision to members of the seminar, or assign a paper for discussion, or any other format they choose. We have a collaborative philosophy in creating the seminars. See next section.

Collaboration with Attendees

The Advanced Clinical Seminars are developed in collaboration with seminar attendees. The presenting analyst(s) will contact attendees ahead of time to inform the attendees of what the analyst envisions for the seminar and to inquire as to what each attendee might find most helpful. The seminar may shift and evolve over the 4-session series in response to attendees’ input.

If attendees are interested in a specific topic or format or presenter, they are encouraged to communicate their desire to the Director of the seminar program. We want the seminar program to meet the needs of more experienced clinicians who wish to advance their learning. We feel that you, as the clinicians we wish to serve, are the best at assessing what would be useful to you.


The schedule for the 2021-2022 academic year of Advanced Clinical Seminars is as follows:
