Established in 1973 as a non-profit 501c3, the San Diego Psychoanalytic Center provides advanced mental health training in psychoanalysis and psychoanalytic psychotherapy; mentoring; community education; and public service to San Diego County and beyond.
SDPC is dedicated to the advancement of psychoanalytic knowledge, with its emphasis on understanding children, adolescents and adults all as unique individuals.
We have several advanced training programs for mental health professionals in the most comprehensive, individualized and effective methods of helping people to live fulfilling lives.
Faculty members volunteer their time, dues, and expertise to promote the professional growth of students, colleagues, and the community. Many of our students and graduates provide consultation and treatment to the community at discounted fees.
We provide programs for the public, as well as collaborating with other academic institutions and professional societies. We are concerned with the study and promotion of healthy child development, as well as with the evaluation and treatment of children’s emotional problems.
The fulfillment of our mission depends on your generosity, so we are extremely appreciative of your support.
