The Training Institute

The Training Institute, established in 1960, was designed to offer what was as yet unavailable in this country: rigorous and thorough training in psychoanalytic theory and technique for serious, qualified students from a variety of academic and professional backgrounds.

The Training Institute today offers:

  • Programs in Adult Psychoanalysis, Child and Adolescent Psychotherapy, Organizational Consulting and Executive Coaching, and Parent-Infant Training;
  • An Integrated Track in Adult and Child Psychoanalysis Program;
  • A Respecialization Program for students without prior mental health training;
  • The New York State License Eligible Program leading to the license in Psychoanalysis (LP) for those without a mental health background;
  • A program for international students -SEVIS – who wish to study psychoanalysis in the United States;
  • IPTAR Intern/Externship Program in Psychoanalytic Studies for doctoral candidates;
  • Carefully planned and wide-ranging curriculums governed by a contemporary Freudian perspective, rooted in the classical tradition and integrating current developments in British object relations theories, modern Kleinian theory, attachment theory, and theories of the self;
  • Courses taught in the context of clinical illustration, making theoretical learning relevant to actual practice.
