The PINE Psychoanalytic Center
The PINE Psychoanalytic Center is dedicated to the support and advancement of psychoanalysis and psychoanalytic psychotherapies through psychoanalytic training, education, scholarly inquiry, and community advocacy.
The Psychoanalytic Institute of New England, East (PINE) was created in 1975 by a group of psychoanalysts committed to exploring and teaching psychoanalytic theory and technique in an intimate collegial atmosphere. The Psychoanalytic Society of New England (PSNE), was formed in 1991 to extend psychoanalytic learning to the greater mental health community throughout Boston and Eastern New England. In 2010 we combined these two organizations to form the PINE Psychoanalytic Center. This created an intellectual home for psychoanalysts, psychoanalytically-oriented psychotherapists, and scholars interested in psychoanalytic ideas.
In 2014, PINE underwent a transition with the transfer of a substantial number of our Training Analysts and several faculty to the Boston Psychoanalytic Society and Institute. Many of those have remained as reciprocal members, joining an enthusiastic core of senior analysts, new faculty, and analysts from other training institutes who are committed to PINE's future. These old and new voices are coming together in thoughtful and inspiring ways. Among our current projects, we are developing a model of clinical presentations that includes group process-related reflection. Our Scientific Meetings in 2015-2016 included presentations by George Makari, M.D. and Andrew Gerber, M.D., Ph.D., Ana-Maria Rizzuto, M.D., and Prof. Dr. Dorothea Huber.
Given this process of developing a new model for PINE, we are delaying acceptance of new candidates until at least September 2017. We still welcome anyone interested in psychoanalytic training to contact us for a discussion about their goals and interests in psychoanalytic training.
The practice of psychoanalysis is complex, and competence requires a clear understanding of ethical principles as outlined in the Principles and Standards of Ethics for Psychoanalysis of the American Psychoanalytic Association. All candidates, faculty, and members of the PINE Psychoanalytic Center commit to adherence to these standards.
