Center Application

The Center  has much to offer those who have an interest in psychoanalysis — whether professional or academic.  To help sustain and support the Center’s programs, we invite you to become a member.
The Center offers three levels of membership:  Regular, Sustaining, and Student





With a Regular Membership of $250, you will have access to local programs and workshops, with fees waived for CEUs/CMEs from Monday night seminars. Additionally, you will have access to the Psychoanalytic Electronic Publishing or PEP-Web (, a searchable online database of psychoanalytic journals, books and videos. An individual subscription costs a one-time fee of $1,030 and $141 annually for access to the database. As part of your Center membership, you can enjoy unlimited access to this comprehensive online library. 
With a Sustaining Membership of $795, you show your commitment to sustain and support the financial stability of the Center and programming that enriches your practice and ensures continued opportunities for the psychoanalytic community.  As a Sustaining Member, you will receive all of the benefits of Regular Membership plus additional professional and financial leadership recognition. You will also receive a $50 coupon to be used toward any workshop registration fee or annual dinner fee during the membership year.  


Student Membership is offered for $75.  Students, including undergraduate, graduate, interns and residents, from any academic discipline who are interested in learning more about psychoanalysis are eligible. Student members are eligible for all Center activities, including access to PEP-Web.
We continue to grow and diversify our membership through initiatives such as:

New programming

Fellowship in Psychoanalytic Thought

Community Seminars

Searching the Psyche through Cinema film series



Two outstanding workshops were offered in Spring 2019—A half-day, live videoconference featuring Dr. Beatrice Beebe and a full-day workshop with Dr. Glen Gabbard.  Both received overwhelmingly positive feedback from participants:

“Dr. Beebe:  For the limited time the speaker was given, it was impressive how much she could convey to the audience.”

 “Dr. Beebe: Excellent presentation—beautiful integration of science/neuroscience with the art of therapy.”

“Dr. Gabard is so well rounded, knowledgeable, and has a great way of conveying helpful material.”

“Dr. Gabbard was easy to grasp and understand for immediate application—thank you!”
