Students from all walks of life enroll in the Master of Arts degree program in Psychoanalysis in order to understand how people develop their emotional and mental lives, how people operate from motivations that are outside their own awareness, and why people interact and behave in characteristic ways.

About

Through this program, students gain psychoanalytic insights into clinical and interpersonal situations and will be prepared for post-graduate psychoanalytic training at BGSP. The program neither offers a complete course of clinical training nor leads to licensed practice, but provides an introduction to psychoanalytic approaches to regressed patients and a solid basis for further clinical study.

  • Develop basic skills for establishing a therapeutic relationship with regressed or narcissistic clients
  • Learn to understand a client’s contacts
