The Psychoanalytic Center of Philadelphia (PCOP) is a non-profit organization founded in 1939 to promote the study and practice of psychoanalysis. The home of the Psychoanalytic Center of Philadelphia is the historic Rockland Mansion (1810) in Philadelphia’s East Fairmount Park. The Center is affiliated with the American Psychoanalytic Association and the International Psychoanalytic Association. Its mission includes education, research, and community service.


The Psychoanalytic Center of Philadelphia provides high quality training programs to mental health professionals and to professionals from other fields whose work would benefit from an understanding of psychoanalytic theory and practice. PCOP's community service efforts are designed to provide a variety of programs which offer either direct clinical services or professional consultation to community agencies or community education about mental health issues, child development, and parenting.
