The AIP Difference

The American Institute for Psychoanalysis offers training for professionals at all levels of experience. Fundamental principles, contemporary theories, as well as developmental perspectives are included in the broad based curriculum of courses, supervision and clinical work. The training programs are enriched by the unique characterological and cultural psychoanalytic perspective pioneered by Karen Horney and her colleagues. Their spirit of continually re-examining psychoanalytic theory in light of contemporary findings guides our education.

The Institute’s goal is to foster the individual and professional development of its members, and to help them gain full appreciation of the complexities of psychic possibilities. We strive to provide an ambiance that fosters active participation, critical thinking, a balance of responsibility and mutual effort, and stimulate individual growth as well.
