Why Choose NPAP for your Psychoanalytic Training?

Academic Program
: NPAP’s academic program is rigorous and comprehensive and provides a plurality of theoretical viewpoints. The curriculum includes a thorough grounding in the psychoanalytic literature including Freud’s drive theory, the British and American object relations schools, self psychology, ego psychology, relational and inter-subjective perspectives and attachment theory. There is a consistent effort to integrate theory and practice in classes. We also offer opportunities to pursue psychoanalytic research.

Diversity: NPAP is distinguished from most other institutes in that, following the legacy and vision and legacy of Theodor Reik, it provides sound, comprehensive training for competent practice to all qualified applicants, including those from outside the tri-disciplines of psychiatry, clinical psychology, and social work. We believe that mature, intelligent, empathic individuals from the arts, the social sciences, and even the physical sciences bring a unique richness to their practice of psychoanalysis and to their understanding of the human psyche and the human condition.
