Institute for Psychoanalytic Education
1 Park Avenue, 8th Floor
NYU Department of Psychiatry
The mission of the Institute for Psychoanalytic Education (IPE) is to promote mental health through advanced clinical training, treatment, and scholarship.
The institute’s primary goals are to:
- Train dedicated and talented mental health professionals, both locally and internationally, by offering a wide range of psychoanalytically focused education programs. With such training, clinicians can more effectively help patients work through their difficulties so that they may lead healthier, more fulfilling lives;
- Provide affordable psychoanalysis and psychotherapy to segments of the community that are underserved and greatly in need of mental health intervention;
- Educate the mental health community about the enduring efficacy of psychodynamic treatment, through outreach seminars, clinical case conferences and lectures; and
- Enrich the lives of individuals and communities through lectures and seminars that bring psychoanalytic insights to bear on the conflicts and complexities of human experience.
