The Institute

The Wisconsin Psychoanalytic Institute has an arrangement to support local students to train with the Michigan Psychoanalytic Institute. Psychoanalytic training is the backbone of our work. Without it there would be no steady stream of new psychoanalysts in our community.  To learn more about  Michigan's Psychoanalytic Institute click here.
