NYGSP works in cooperation with our partners at CMPS to bring you a wide range of events and public courses to bring you new insights and clinical applications of psychoanalytic study. We welcome people with diverse interests, backgrounds, and ages to come together to explore how the unconscious is manifested in the world. We will consider how the search for a deeper understanding of the human condition is a challenging task, but one that can enhance life experiences.

Open House and Information Sessions

Open House and Information Sessions are an excellent opportunities to see the school and learn about the NYGSP experience, academic programs, psychoanalytic training, the admissions process, financial aid, and much more.

During these events, learn how our program provides a solid foundation in psychoanalytic theory, and for those who desire it, a comprehensive preparation for psychoanalytic training. Also discover how graduates of NYGSP go on for licensure training with our partners at the Center for Modern Psychoanalytic Studies (where they gain an advanced placement).

One-Year Program

The One-Year Program in Modern Psychoanalysis offers a solid foundation in modern psychoanalytic theory and technique.  The four component courses are designed to be useful to practitioners and non-practitioners alike. An introduction to psychological development, both healthy and distorted, imparts an understanding of the rationale for psychoanalytic treatment.  Key aspects of the treatment process, including transference, resistance, countertransference, and analytic listening, are studied from the perspectives of patient and practitioner.  Participants gain a sense of themselves as therapeutic agents and begin to develop skills applicable in both clinical and other life situations.  Classes are taught in a supportive, discussion-oriented format.  Continuing education credits are offered to psychoanalysts, psychologists, and social workers.

CMPS Annual Conference

Destruction and Fantasy:  The Other Without, The Other Within (In-Person)


Saturday, November 4, 2023

9:30 AM – 4:00 PM

Featuring Masha Gessen and Eyal Rozmarin

The debate within psychoanalysis about the role of the sociopolitical in the treatment room exemplifies what defines the practice in the first place: the study of blind spots.  The hidden “self” gradually manifests, becoming less alien to the other and less other to the alien.  Narcissistic wishes both confront and meet the needs of society, but how does the individual reconcile narcissistic wishes with society’s claims?  This conference proposes situating the unconscious in the sociocultural and the sociocultural in the unconscious — through an investigation of fantasies of otherness (as characterized by the factors that interfere with narcissistic gratification) and othering (as defined by the pathologizing of the narcissistic aims).

Masha Gessen is one of our most trenchant observers of democracy.  Gessenis the author of eleven books, including the National Book Award-winning The Future Is History: How Totalitarianism Reclaimed Russia and The Man Without a Face: The Unlikely Rise of Vladimir Putin.  A staff writer at The New Yorker, Gessen has covered political subjects including Russia, LGBT rights, Vladimir Putin, Donald Trump, and the rise of autocracy.  Gessen’s latest book, Surviving Autocracy, is a bracing overview of the calamitous trajectory of American democracy under the Trump administration

Eyal Rozmarin is coeditor of the book series Relational Perspectives in Psychoanalysis and associate editor of the journals Psychoanalytic Dialogues and Studies in Gender and Sexuality.  He has published numerous articles in psychoanalytic journals, as well as book chapters, and has presented his work around the world.  His research takes place in the intersection of psychoanalysis, social theory, and philosophy, exploring the relations between subjectivity and the collective.  He is in private practice in New York.
