Advanced Training for Mental Health Professionals

The Dallas Psychoanalytic Center provides full training in the theory and practice of psychoanalysis to qualified candidates. The Professional Development programs of the Center teach psychoanalytic principles to other mental health professionals and community members. The DPC is affiliated with the American Psychoanalytic Association.

The Dallas Foundation for Psychoanalysis (DFP) is a non-profit organization that supports the Center. It serves as a bridge between the Center and the community and promotes a psychoanalytic understanding to help solve the emotional problems of adults, children and families in the DFW Metroplex. Thus, the Foundation Board is composed of members from the community, as well as Center faculty and candidates.

The DFP organizes and coordinates programs, lectures, and consultation for public agencies, schools, and religious organizations.

As a bridge between the Center and the larger, social and educational community in Dallas, the Foundation promotes and provides psychoanalytic sponsorship in the following ways.
