The goal of the Dallas Therapy Alliance (DTA) postdoctoral fellowship is to provide a comprehensive one-year experience in psychoanalytic psychotherapy in a private practice setting. The fellowship is uniquely positioned in a group practice of seven licensed clinical and counseling psychologists. This setting provides the postdoctoral fellow with the opportunity for specialized training in psychoanalytic psychotherapy, as well as integrating a variety of treatment modalities, such as attachment therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, play therapy, and parent counseling. Additionally, the fellow has the opportunity to obtain training in psychological, neuropsychological and psychoeducational assessment. DTA provides the opportunity to work with adults, adolescents, children, families, couples and groups. A minimum of four hours of supervision is provided weekly.
A unique benefit of the postdoctoral fellowship is that the fellow will maintain their clients at the end of the year in order to transition into private practice with an established client base.
The application deadline is January 31 of each year. Interviews begin in February.
Interested candidates should submit a current curriculum vita and a letter explaining their interest in psychoanalytic postdoctoral training in a private practice setting by mail or email to:
Chosen candidates will be required to provide two letters of recommendation and graduate transcripts.
September 1st of each year is the preferred start date, but this is negotiable.
