The New Jersey Institute for
Training in Psychoanalysis
An exceptional treatment and accredited educational facility, integrating contemporary and traditional psychoanalytic training for over forty years
WHY STUDY PSYCHOANALYSIS?
Initiated by Freud’s groundbreaking theories and refined and developed through the last century and up to today, psychoanalysis relies on talk therapy. The psychoanalytic method defines the cutting edge of effective, substantive mental health intervention.
Psychoanalysis is based on the recognition that individuals are often unaware of many unconscious factors that determine their emotions and behavior. These may create states of unhappiness or confusion, problems in work or in love relationships, disturbances in mood and self-esteem, or perhaps a sense of general overall dissatisfaction.
- Theoretical Foundation -From the classical to the most recent advances in depth and in perspective with each other
- Self-Analysis – A deep and complete psychoanalytic treatment hones your most important tool, yourself, into a precise implement
- Supervision – Be effective for clients, learn techniques and gain perspective to see and feel what the client is revealing, get support and protection from the burdens of the work
- In the Room Work and Experience – Work at the clinic to build experience, serve the community, and add a critical dimension to the learning process
Our mission is to provide professional training in the theory and practice of psychoanalysis and psychotherapy and to apply these principles to therapeutic services for the public, offering treatment for children and adults at reduced fees, to the benefit of underserved communities.
NJI seeks to advance the study and practice of psychoanalysis. Our community enjoys collegial networking and ongoing professional development through participation in NJI’s various events and activities.
