Innovative Training: Overview

The San Diego Psychoanalytic Center believes that symptoms and problems in functioning are best viewed in the context of a person’s particular emotional and physical status, life experiences and coping style, and current relationships with individuals and groups. This belief orients our approach to individualized, in-depth treatment, personalized supervision, and small-group training programs.

SDPC provides two psychoanalytic training programs for qualified mental health clinicians. One includes comprehensive education and clinical training in adult psychoanalysis and in child and adolescent analysis, as well as a non-clinical psychoanalytic academic program. The other offers education and advanced clinical training in adult psychoanalytic psychotherapy and in child and adolescent psychoanalytic psychotherapy.

As a member of the American Psychoanalytic Association, SDPC is accredited by the California Medical Association and the California Psychological Association. This institution has received approval to operate from the Bureau for Private Postsecondary and Vocational Education Bureau. The Bureau has determined that this institution’s operational plan satisfies the minimum standards listed in Education Code section 94915(b).
