Why NPI?

The NPI Difference.

NPI is a multi-faceted and vibrant psychoanalytic community dedicated to the study and practice of psychoanalysis and psychodynamic psychotherapy.

Our endeavor is to inspire candidates, faculty, and members to grow in their clinical expertise and to provide a supportive community for psychoanalyst’s activities throughout their professional life.

Our commitment is to present innovative, compelling and unique  opportunities to experience psychoanalytic thinking and application via training, ongoing continuing education, consultation groups, special seminars and conferences. We offer classes and events in the  Los Angeles, Orange County and Pasadena areas.

A welcoming psychoanalytic community

NPI welcomes applications for psychoanalytic training from licensed Mental Health Professionals and Interns, including Clinical Psychologists, LCSWs, MFTs, Research Psychoanalysts, MDs, and nurses.  In the ambiance of small classes, candidates hone and deepen the development of their clinical skills.

All of our courses are taught by knowledgeable faculty experienced in the field of psychoanalysis. In addition to our own core faculty, NPI draws faculty from other training institutes in Southern California. The collegial environment of senior analysts from a variety of analytic persuasions working closely with training candidates provides a psychoanalytic community embracing the foundations of psychoanalytic thought from the origins of Freud’s theory to the most innovative technical and neuroscientific advances in the field.
