Programs Overview

We offer a variety of programs and courses throughout the academic year that are opportunities for all mental health professionals to hone and enhance their clinical skills. Most of these programs offer CME’s and CE’s and many provide insights and information that may be of interest to non-clinicians and community members as well. The Psychoanalytic Center of Philadelphia is approved by the American Psychological Association and the American Psychoanalytic Association to award Continuing Education credits to physicians, psychologists, social workers, licensed professional counselors, and marriage and family therapists.



Forums are lecture-based events that feature prominent professionals in the field of psychoanalysis.  Visiting Analysts deliver talks on thought-provoking topics and exciting breakthroughs in psychoanalytic thought.  Some of our past Visiting Analysts include Dr. Nancy McWilliams, Dr. Beatrice Beebe, Dr. Owen Renik, among many others. CME and CE credits are available.
