Special Extension Program Events 2017 – 2018

The Toronto Psychoanalytic Society’s Extension Program has been running continuously for more than 25 years and remains a very well received and popular educational program in the Toronto professional community among colleagues who work in the mental health field.

It is our hope that we continue to be aware of and meet the educational needs of the professional community, and we are trying to do our best to respond to that by offering the wide variety of Special Study Groups, Extended Courses and Special Single Events listed below.

The popularity of our Extension Program has lately passed beyond the Toronto area through the new phenomenon of “distance learning” and we have been pleased to have participants join in from across Canada. If you are interested in distance learning please contact the tps&i to see if your desired course will be available remotely.
