The Psychoanalytic Center of Philadelphia has a dedicated group of members who govern the organization, instruct trainees, and present continuing education programs. Our members consist of graduates from the Center’s Psychoanalytic, Psychotherapy, and Fellowship programs, current trainees, and members of the Greater Philadelphia community with an interest in psychoanalysis.
