Founded in 1932, our mission is to provide professional training in the theory and practice of psychoanalysis and psychotherapy and to enhance psychodynamic study through research and scholarship. We apply these principles to therapeutic services for the public, offering treatment for children and adults at reduced fees, to the benefit of underserved communities.
The Chicago Institute for Psychoanalysis is a national leader in psychoanalytic education, scholarship and clinical services to the community. The Institute ed ucates mental health professionals as adult and child psychoanalysts and psychotherapists in its Psychoanalytic Education Program, Adult Psychotherapy Program and Child and Adolescent Psychotherapy Program. Through its clinics, the Institute provides psychotherapy on a sliding scale to adults and children, serving some of Chicago’s most vulnerable and under served communities.
We also offer community education programs and consultation to schools, courts, businesses and other organizations. Institute graduates and faculty are highly skilled practitioners of psychoanalysis and psychotherapy and are the teachers, supervisors and consultants to new generations of mental health practitioners.
