Fundamental Psychoanalytic Perspectives

Fundamental Psychoanalytic Perspectives

If you are interested in psychoanalysis and want to learn more, whether or not you are a psychotherapist, then this comprehensive introductory program has been designed for you. This unique program has been offered since 2004 by the Toronto Psychoanalytic Society in response to the growing interest in understanding complex issues within ourselves, our patients, and in contemporary society. We have found that understanding psychoanalytic concepts can often be applied to professional and personal situations as well.

Each weekly seminar is led by a psychoanalyst who will explore a variety of basic psychoanalytic concepts through readings, explanatory clinical examples and guided discussions. This thirty-five-week course is offered Thursday evenings from 7:30 to 9:30 pm between September and June.

Although this is not a training program, it does provide an excellent introduction to the core psychoanalytic concepts for people who may be interested in further training.

Admission and Fees

This Program is open to anyone who has a professional degree, preferably a Masters Degree. Clinical experience and personal therapy are always an asset. All applicants will be interviewed by a member of the Committee.
