The Interpersonal approach to psychoanalysis underscores the human qualities of the psychoanalyst as a factor in therapeutic change. Instead of a silent analyst sitting behind a patient on the couch, our founders, in the 1940s, pioneered a uniquely American type of psychoanalysis, emphasizing a conversation between analyst and patient, often sitting face to face.
As a pacesetter in modern psychoanalysis and its applications, the Institute offers a wide variety of educational opportunities from immersive psychoanalytic training to continuing professional education for licensed mental health professionals.
