The Institute for Psychoanalytic Studies welcomes you into an atmosphere where faculty and candidates are partners in the study of the depths and wonders of the human psyche. Our four year curriculum provides a strong foundation in classical psychoanalysis and prepares candidates for independent practice in adult or child and adolescent psychotherapy.
The Institute offers advanced post graduate training for candidates with a minimum of a Masters Degrees in a variety of fields including social work, psychology, counseling, psychiatry and nursing. Our approach is collegial—students are considered partners and participate in shaping the Institute’s programs, policies and practices. Our Psychotherapy Referral Service connects candidates and faculty with patients seeking therapy.
Laughter is an integral part of our institute. Not only does it relax us, but, as Freud says, it indicates that a repression has been temporarily released.
