At WSI we offer 1 and 5 year comprehensive training programs in psychoanalytic psychotherapy within a psycho-dynamic framework. The emphasis throughout your training will be on an integration of theory and practicum. The training integrates academic, clinical, and supervisory components with an intensive training analysis and as a candidate you will receive a solid grounding in psychoanalytic theory and technique across a range of contemporary psychoanalytic approaches.

Our training programs are geared towards those contemplating a career change, and towards beginning clinicians who wish to learn the principles of psychoanalytic psychotherapy and practice to further enhance their skills.
