Gifts of all sizes allow BPSI to attract the brightest clinicians, researchers, and scholars and to train candidates, students, and fellows to uphold the highest standards of psychoanalytic and psychotherapy education and practice.


A CRITICAL MOMENT - Psychoanalysis is at a crossroads.

Our field has been largely absent from the public discourse – sidelined by the popularity of Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Psychopharmacology and Neuropsychiatry.

Right now, BPSI is thriving. This is no chance matter. It is the result of a strategic and concerted effort to engage, train and nurture the next generation—as we continue to provide a welcoming professional, collegial home and educational nexus for all of our trainees and members.

As the largest psychoanalytic institute in the country and a showcase for excellence in psychoanalytic training, BPSI is the standard bearer of psychodynamic psychotherapy and psychoanalysis.

Let’s continue down the road that will allow our profession – and BPSI – to flourish.

BPSI is the largest APsaA-affiliated psychoanalytic training program in the country. We offer:

Gifts to BPSI’s Annual Appeal are made without any restrictions or designations. This kind of unrestricted giving offers the most flexibility and makes it possible to offer many of our programs/events, meet general day-to-day business expenses, and manage new opportunities or respond to unanticipated challenges.

Give to BPSI's Annual Appeal.

There are many types of gifts which can be made in honor of a loved one, friend, parent, neighbor, care giver or teacher. Large or small, one-time or recurring, honorary, or celebratory, you can pay tribute to the important people in your life by honoring them with a gift to BPSI.

In lieu of accepting traditional presents, consider asking friends or family to make a gift to BPSI, or if you're a guest at an upcoming celebration, consider making a gift to BPSI on the recipient's behalf. Not only will you honor them, but you will also make a lasing impact on BPSI's work.

Consider making a gift in memory of someone important to you. Every memorial contribution is acknowledged and a family member is sent a notification of  gifts received.
