CPPNJ - The Center for Psychoanalysis and Psychotherapy of New Jersey


Contemporary psychoanalysis is a vital, effective, and experiential mental health treatment. Over the last century, psychoanalysis and psychoanalytic training have evolved, integrating the best of psychotherapy approaches including those from infant research, neuroscience, attachment theory, and body-based therapies. Psychoanalytically informed treatment is, at its heart, a process by which people discover a sense of personal freedom and an enduring capacity for satisfying relationships and genuine living.

CPPNJ is dedicated to training skillful and effective psychoanalysts and psychotherapists. Our rigorous program provides a solid foundation in psychoanalytic theory and clinical practice, as well as integrates contemporary developments in mental health treatment. Experienced practitioners, sought-after supervisors, and published authors bring a wealth of knowledge to the CPPNJ faculty.

Analytic training engages the intellect and the emotions in profound ways. CPPNJ offers many opportunities to deepen the training experience with formal and informal workshops, seminars, conferences, and social gatherings. The best clinical training for any psychological therapy includes course work, supervision, and personal analysis; CPPNJ offers this to licensed therapists who wish to advance their skills. The formal training element of our program takes place in a nurturing and supportive community of candidates and faculty who will become your peers and colleagues, now and in the future.
