The Psychoanalytic Center of California is a Los Angeles-based psychoanalytic society and institute offering intensive training in psychoanalysis and psychoanalytic psychotherapy. Our training approach emphasizes early states of mind and their impact on psychological development. An integral part of the training in psychoanalysis is a course in infant observation processed within a seminar format. The well-balanced curriculum includes an in-depth study of Freud, Klein, and Bion; the British Independent School; Trauma and Narcissism; Primitive Mental Disorders; and Advanced Psychoanalytic Technique.
The PCC offers a Certificate of Psychoanalysis and a Psy.D. in Psychoanalysis, a course of study leading to Certification in Child Psychoanalysis, and a one-year and a two-year program in Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy.
The PCC also offers rich continuing education and outreach programs to Los Angeles area licensed mental health professionals, students, and the public at large.
