Psychoanalytic Training

Pittsburgh Psychoanalytic Center (PPC) offers a very individualized program (5-10 years) that consists of course work primarily offered on weekends and in the evenings. Many of our candidates (referring to students in the program) are accomplished professionals with full-time careers.  PPC provides in-depth training to psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, and other mental health professionals. PPC offers the only psychoanalytic training program in Western Pennsylvania that is accredited by the American Psychoanalytic Association.


Three Components to the Training

  • The training analysis (every clinical candidate participates in psychoanalysis to gain better insight into themselves) 
  • Coursed instruction in psychoanalysis (theory, technique, writing and electives)
  • Supervised clinical work


Interested applicants should send a letter expressing intent to enroll.  For more information on courses and the education program, including the Candidate Bulletin contact administration@pghpsa.org or call (412) 661-4224.


If you are unable to commit to the full schedule of standard Candidate training, but would like to further your pursuit of psychoanalytic training, then our Part-time program might be a good option. 


Part-Time Candidate Option: This option is available for those who are not able to commit as much time as might be required by traditional training. The part-time program is a combination of our Psychodynamic Psychotherapy curriculum, training analysis, and supervision.


For more information see the Psychodynamic Psychotherapy page



The coursework completed will be applied as credit in the traditional training program when one matriculates.
