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

A Conspiracy of Silence:  Identifying Racism in the Consulting Room and Analytic Institute

Via Zoom

Saturday, November 5, 2022

9:15 AM – 4:00 PM


Silence is an essential clinical tool that can be used to facilitate analytic work, from developing the transference to regulating frustration and communicating feeling. However, a form of “learned silence” can drown out this therapeutic quiet, particularly with regard to confronting racism in our consultation rooms. This conference will explore the ways we avoid our patients’ racial traumas and fail to address prejudice in our training institutes. Facing these learned silences, which often take the form of countertransference resistance, can expand our clinical vocabulary, promote richer communication between patient and analyst, and deepen the analytic work.
