Education & Events


The Alliance Education Committee seeks to facilitate meaningful professional development opportunities for clinicians throughout the Pacific Northwest who value psychoanalytic theory, knowledge, and practice.

Many courses (classes, seminars, or study groups) are offered each Fall, Winter, and Spring by various Alliance members and other professionals from the wider psychoanalytic community. 

The Education Committee encourages all Alliance members to consider offering a class, seminar, or study group in a professional area of interest.  If you have questions about leading an event, please send an email to

All courses are to fit within the overall Alliance mission, to promote the understanding of psychoanalytic knowledge and practice.

Along with the Classes, the Education Committee oversees the Annual Mentoring Groups, a series of Foundational Courses, and online Study Guides. Check out the wide variety of compelling educational offerings.
