Foundational Courses

The Psychoanalytic Perspectives: Roots & Branches initiative, made possible through an Alliance Special Initiatives Grant and the Alliance Education Committee, is thrilled to sponsor an ongoing two-year series of Foundational Courses designed to highlight key figures and concepts from Freud up through the present day.

Designed for students and those in their first decades of practice, though of interest to therapists at all levels, this series seeks to ground participants in particular traditions, models, and language by considering many significant developments in psychoanalytic thought and practice from our highly textured heritage.
