The St. Louis Psychoanalytic Institute’s mission is to further mental health and well-being through psychoanalytic education, treatment, and building community. For those who seek an understanding of emotional life, the Institute is a learning and resource center that gives insight into core human dilemmas from infancy to old age.
The Institute provides fundamental thorough advanced psychoanalytically informed professional education. In addition to our in-depth multi-year training programs, we offer shorter continuing education courses, lectures by national figures who are experts in their disciplines, as well as sophisticated library services. We also offer educational programs to the community in an effort to illuminate the complexities of human interaction and enrich community life.
