About The Psychoanalytic Center of California
The Psychoanalytic Center of California (PCC) is a non-profit psychoanalytic society and institute established in 1984 and a component society of the International Psychoanalytic Association (IPA) since 1993.
The Society is a membership organization comprised of psychoanalysts, candidates (psychoanalysts-in-training), and individuals interested in the application of psychoanalytic ideas to other fields (e.g. mental health, medical, scientific, educational, and cultural). In addition to its membership as a component society of the IPA, PCC is a member of the Confederation of Independent Psychoanalytic Societies (CIPS).
The Institute offers training toward certification in Psychoanalysis and Child Psychoanalysis. In addition to the IPA, PCC is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Psychoanalytic Education. The PCC also offers one-year certificate programs in psychoanalytic psychotherapy and child psychoanalytic psychotherapy.
Accredited to Provide Continuing Education Credit
The PCC is accredited by the Institute for Medical Quality/California Medical Association (IMQ/CMA) to provide continuing medical education for physicians. The PCC takes responsibility for the content, quality and scientific integrity of its CME activities.
Psychologists may apply hours in attendance at CME accredited live activities toward their continuing education requirement for licensure.
We also provide continuing education units required by the California Board of Behavioral Sciences (Provider # PCE1355) for those holding MFT or LCSW licenses, as well as by the California Board of Registered Nursing (Provider #CEP6003) for Registered Nurses.
