Can You Find Your Institutes Certificate of Accreditation?
Students in training programs have a vested interest in their programs accreditation status. They are encouraged to visit our agencys web site at www.abapinc.org as well as the web site of the Association of Specialized and Professional Accreditors--www.aspa-usa.org. These sites articulate accreditation practices which can be used as benchmarks for evaluating ones own program in terms of integrity, accountability, safeguards of student rights, provisions for student input, ethics, educational objectives, faculty credentials, aspects of classroom instruction, application and graduates requirements. ABAP, Inc. accredits the training programs of institutes granting certificates or diplomas in psychoanalysis. Accredited programs are encouraged to state in published documents that they are accredited. Accredited programs also receive a Certificate of Accreditation which the institute is encouraged to display in a public place such as a hallway, classroom, or library. Can you find this Certificate hanging in your institute? If not, ask your faculty or administration about its whereabouts.
the Office of Accreditation for more information about the agencys
spring meetings or about how your institute can ensure integrity in psychoanalytic
education and training through becoming accredited.
