The PINE Psychoanalytic Center is dedicated to the dissemination of knowledge about psychoanalysis and psychoanalytic psychotherapy through training, education, scholarly inquiry, and advocacy.
Currently we have two levels of Fellowship programs for early to mid-career clinicians who would like to explore psychodynamic theory and technique. In the future we may offer full adult psychoanalytic training to PINE Fellows and other interested applicants (see the section on Adult Psychoanalytic Training).
We continue to offer a wide range of scientific meetings to the community. In the past two years we have invited nationally recognized psychoanalysts to speak about the history of psychoanalysis, the status of and recent examples of psychoanalytic research, the interface between psychoanalytic and Buddhist practices, neuropsychoanalysis, the challenge of translating a new edition of Freud's collected works, the nature and meaning of "terrorism," the psychological dilemmas experienced by minority groups within the larger culture, and the theory and clinical process evident in work done with adults and children in the foster care system. We hope to develop workshops for our members and for clinicians within the community that complement and enhance the professional lives of psychoanalytic psychotherapists.
