The Autobiographical Dialogue Seminars, founded in 2002, address the professional and life-span development of one’s own voice in the dialogue between analysts. The seminars explore the manner and difficulties in which autobiography (the way we “write” our life) and dialogue (the way we present our case) establish and influence each other, as we experience and reflect -- along the Freudian-Ferenczian continuum -- on theoretical and personal implications for clinical work and conference presentation.

The Center for Modern Psychoanalytic Studies, a New York State licensure-qualifying institute chartered by the Board of Regents, was founded in 1971 to extend the theory and technique of psychoanalysis to include the treatment of the narcissistic disorders, furthering the pioneering work of Dr Hyman Spotnitz. Under the leadership of Dr. Phyllis W. Meadow the Center developed into one of the premier psychoanalytic training institutes in the country. Today, CMPS, led by its president Dr Mimi Crowell, is dedicated to maintaining the high caliber of its training program. Our program is open to clinicians and mental health workers in addition to those in the fields of education, the humanities, business, and the arts. Courses are designed to give students extensive exposure to the fundamentals of psychoanalysis as a theory of the mind, as a therapeutic method, and as a scientific research tool. The clinical aspects include a fieldwork placement offering students the opportunity to observe severely regressed patients followed by a clinical studies internship at the Consultation and Referral Service where they treat psychoanalytic cases under supervision. For our graduates, CMPS opens new doors in understanding the underpinnings of emotional disorders while offering a unique and comprehensive approach to psychoanalytic technique.

IEA is dedicated to the exploration and application of creativity in the processing and analysis of transference and resistance in depth oriented psychoanalytic treatment. We emphasize that therapy is a creative medium; it is crucial that Expressive Analysts have a thorough understanding of developmental, technical, and practical aspects of depth work.  Our philosophy forms around the importance of non-verbal work and communications-- starting by locating feelings in the body. It is rewarding that today neuropsychoanalytic research and infant studies show that empathy is a body experience. We teach three main viewpoints: Object Relations, especially Winnicott; Jung; and Relational Theory.

The Portuguese Association of Psychoanalysis and Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy (AP) is a non-profit association which was created in Lisbon on 18th April 2008. We aim to provide the teaching of psychoanalysis as a general theory of mind, a scientific model and a therapeutic technique based on Freud's discoveries and theories. We want to train high quality psychoanalytic professionals and provide high quality psychoanalytic and psychotherapeutic treatment. Part of our work will be conducted in collaboration with appropriate national and international organizations in the interests of psychoanalysis and the psychoanalytic and psychotherapeutic Profession. We believe psychoanalysis should be an important tool not only to improve mental health but also to contribute to public and intellectual life. This Association has started a regular teaching in 2008/9 school year and performed two congresses, the first meeting of the AP, which took place in Lisbon, celebrating its first anniversary, under the theme "Esquizoidis and the Actual Society,” and the second one in Azores - Sao Miguel island under the theme "Antero de Quental - Depression and Suicide.”

Relational Psychoanalysis and Psychotherapy in Seattle (RPPS), founded in 2009, is not a traditional training institute but rather a psychoanalytic collective comprised of colleagues with a shared passion for relational thinking and a common goal to build a bigger relational community in Seattle. The faculty offers courses and consult groups to students and clinicians who are interested in learning didactically and experientially about relational psychoanalysis. With a commitment to learning, the faculty get together on a regular basis to develop curriculum and to discuss each of the selected readings, encouraging each other to talk about personal connections to theory. This coming together and learning is an integral aspect of the RPPS tradition; as clinicians we are interested in learning with and from each other.
