What's unique about psychoanalytic training at PINE?
The PINE Institute is a small community by design, and is focused on teaching and training psychoanalytic clinicians in intimate seminars and classes which meet in faculty homes and offices. We are passionate about understanding the history of psychoanalysis and its evolution within contemporary practice. PINE Institute offers a training program that combines rigorous study with individual flexibility. We emphasize clinical excellence and continued exploration of theory in psychoanalytic practice. Most of our faculty are full time clinicians. Because of our size, we are able to combine seriousness of purpose with delight in learning and close personal attention to each candidate. This makes PINE unique in the Boston psychoanalytic landscape. We take pride in our graduates, themselves fine clinicians and teachers, who are deeply committed to psychoanalysis as a profession. Many graduates and members of the PINE Institute hold significant positions in universities, medical schools, and hospitals. They are recognized nationally and internationally as scholars and contributors to the field.
We are in the process of developing a new model of education for therapists who wish to study psychoanalytic theory and technique. We are therefore delaying acceptance of new candidates until at least September 2019. However, we welcome anyone interested in psychoanalytic training to contact us for a discussion about their goals and interests in becoming psychoanalysts. We are now offering two Fellowship programs for those in the mental health community-at-large interested in deepening their psychodynamic psychotherapy work.
