The PINE Psychoanalytic Center is dedicated to the dissemination of knowledge about psychoanalysis and psychoanalytic psychotherapy through training, education, scholarly inquiry, and 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, these two organizations were combined to form the PINE Psychoanalytic Center. This created an intellectual home for psychoanalysts, psychoanalytically-oriented psychotherapists, and scholars interested in psychoanalytic ideas.
Members whose primary or sole affiliation is with PINE include a group of senior analysts, faculty who trained at PINE and have graduated in the last two decades, and analysts from other institutes who are interested in participating in an educational organization in which small classes, individual development, and attention to clinical process is prioritized. These old and new voices are coming together in thoughtful and inspiring ways.
