Newport Psychoanalytic Institute maintains the highest ethical standards in its training and professional activities. Furthermore, we endorse and uphold the ethical standards provided and enumerated by the American Psychoanalytical Association (APsA). As in many organizations, psychoanalytic institutes have a long history of poor boundaries with destructive consequences. Adhering to these guidelines without considering oneself an exception makes it easier to successfully manage social motivations and countertransference in interpersonal professional interactions. Firm boundaries help analysts and supervisors avoid the negative consequences of boundary violations or multiple roles with patients and supervisees.
Any member or student who thinks that a NPI member or faculty has acted illegally, irresponsibly, unethically or unprofessional may file a complaint with the Ethics Committee.
