History of PPC
The Pittsburgh Psychoanalytic Center (PPC) traces its roots to 1961. Over the past 50 years, the organization
and its affiliates have trained psychoanalysts and provided psychoanalytic education and services to the Pittsburgh Community. Today's Center resulted from a merger in 2007 of the Pittsburgh Psychoanalytic Society
and Institute and the Pittsburgh Psychoanalytic Foundation.
The Center is affiliated with and accredited by the American Psychoanalytic
Association (APsaA) and is one of more than 70 psychoanalytic institutes and societies worldwide. The
faculty members and Board of Directors of PPC are committed to implementing PPC’s mission: training psychoanalysts,
providing psychoanalytic education programs, and supporting organizations providing training in psychoanalytic methods.
Affiliate Members are psychoanalysts
who have graduated from institutions other than APsaA-accredited institutes.
Associate members are individuals

Training Program in Psychodynamic Psychotherapy.
