The New York University Postdoctoral Program in Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis is designed to provide postdoctoral education in the theory and practice of psychotherapy and psychoanalysis. Established in 1961, at a time when psychologists found it difficult to obtain formal training in psychoanalysis, the Postdoctoral Program is the largest psychoanalytic training program in the country with over 500 graduates. The program offers a diverse and unique curriculum, comprising modern Freudian, Interpersonal, Relational, and Independent orientations. Each orientation has an internationally known teaching faculty and outstanding clinical supervisors. Contemporary psychoanalysis has become increasingly pluralistic, and the Postdoctoral Program’s scholars and practitioners have made a significant contribution to the field.
