Return to Committees


The Consultation Committee is a Standing Committee of the Education Committee and serves to receive enquiries from the community about psychoanalytic treatment and to refer, as appropriate, cases to candidates or members. In addition the committee has created Informed Consent Procedures for the candidates to use for their control cases. The Committee also will serve as both liaison to other mental health professionals and outreach to the community at large to inform about psychoanalysis as a treatment method and about the availability of reduced fee analysis with candidates of the program. While the Committee and the Institute do not offer treatment services directly, the committee will co-ordinate referral to suitable analysts for evaluation and treatment.
