FROM THE DIRECTOR
The Westchester Center for the Study of Psychoanalysis and Psychotherapy (WCSPP), a nonprofit organization, was chartered in 1974 by the Regents of the University of the State of New York. Its inception came about by eminent psychoanalysts who value pluralistic psychoanalytic training set in a strong professional community. Today, WCSPP continues its deep commitment to rigorous academic training for clinicians. WCSPP has developed new programs to meet the changing needs of mental health professionals along with a vital psychotherapy service for individuals in need of psychoanalysis and psychotherapy.
Each class of candidates is a vigorous group that becomes the nucleus for enduring professional and personal relationships. Affiliation with WCSPP continues long after graduation. Our Psychoanalytic Association provides members a variety of intellectual forums and social opportunities.
Graduates are well represented on the faculty as instructors and supervisors. In addition to Westchester County, the WCSPP community includes professionals from neighboring Rockland and Dutchess counties as well as New York City and Connecticut.
WCSPP’s Psychotherapy Service provides ongoing psychoanalysis and psychotherapy on a sliding scale to children, adolescents and adults. The Psychotherapy Service is not restricted by insurance limitations in terms of length of psychotherapy nor the nature of the psychotherapy itself. The Center is committed to serving the needs of all patients.
Please contact us with any questions you may have. We will be happy to meet with you to discuss the particular ways WCSPP can contribute to your professional and personal development.
