Consider applications for IPA recognition of Child and Adolescent training programmes run by IPA Constituent Organisations or Institutes, and to make recommendations to the Board as to whether or not such training programmes meet the IPA’s requirements and should be recognised. (See paragraphs 8 to 12 below.)
b. Review under the IPA’s Equivalency Procedures individual applications for recognition as a Child and Adolescent analyst from IPA Members, who completed training programmes run by IPA Constituent Organisations or Institutes before they were recognised by the IPA, or other training programmes run by organisations which are not IPA Constituent Organisations or Institutes, and to make recommendations to the Board as to whether such applicants meet the IPA’s requirements and should be recognised as Child and Adolescent analysts. (See paragraphs 13 to 18 below.)
c. Encourage Constituent Organisations or Institutes to establish Child and Adolescent training programmes which meet the requirements in this document, and to provide such assistance as may be requested.

b. treatment of these supervised cases for a period of at least a year; at the same frequency required by the Constituent Society for adult psychoanalysis;
c. supervision and evaluation normally conducted weekly for at least 40 sessions per year by analysts who have been designated for these functions by their Constituent Organisations or Institutes; and
d. clinical and theoretical seminars in Child and Adolescent psychoanalysis, including development, psychopathology and technique, and including those ethical principles and procedures which apply specifically to the treatment of children and adolescents.
a. completed Child and Adolescent training programmes run by IPA Constituent Organisations or Institutes before such programmes were officially recognised by the IPA as meeting the requirements outlined in this document, or

Such applications should be addressed to the Chair of COCAP at firstname.lastname@example.org. Applications will be acknowledged.
