At the Boston Graduate School of Psychoanalysis (BGSP), we provide graduate programs that prepare students for successful and rewarding careers as Mental Health Counselors, Psychoanalysts, Child and Adolescent Psychotherapists, Addiction Counselors, as well as Society and Cultural Change Makers.
Our integrated programs are designed to give students the education and training necessary to succeed in the real-world. Academics are taught by experienced and highly regarded faculty, and with a psychodynamic orientation, students learn to work beyond symptoms and discover new solutions to old problems. We provide extensive clinical training and supervision, so students can build their confidence while they build their resume; and every student experiences their own personal analysis to build emotional resilience that protects and guides them when working with others.

We use our understanding of unconscious dynamics to help solve problems of emotional suffering and destructive action. In this way, we help individuals, groups, and communities free their creative energy to live satisfying lives in cooperation with others.
As a graduate school, we teach students to actualize this personally and professionally by bringing psychoanalysis to bear on individual, social and cultural problems. BGSP’s educational programs train psychoanalysts, counselors, interdisciplinary scholars, and social and cultural advocates.
Through our Therapy Center, counseling internships, and work in the community, students and graduates work to help people directly improve their lives.
