Why Study Psychoanalysis?
We offer a wide range of high quality of teaching and practice opportunities in our programs.
Originating in Freud’s groundbreaking contributions and refined and developed through the last century and up to today, psychoanalysis represents the foundation and cornerstone of nearly all psychotherapeutic treatment and theory. With its reliance on talk therapy, the psychoanalytic method remains on the cutting edge of effective, substantive mental health intervention.
As a therapy, psychoanalysis is based on the recognition that individuals are often unaware of many of the factors that determine their emotions and behavior. These unconscious factors may create states of unhappiness or confusion, sometimes in the form of recognizable symptoms and at other times as troubling personality traits, leading to problems in work or in love relationships, disturbances in mood and self-esteem, or perhaps a sense of general overall dissatisfaction.
