Your gifts to BPSI’s Annual Giving make it possible to continue to offer a breadth of programs/events for our membership and the public, manage new opportunities, and respond to unanticipated challenges. Your generosity supports tuition scholarships, our commitment to anti-racism, outreach initiatives for early career clinicians, and our community education program “Explorations in Mind.” Every gift matters. Thank you for your thoughtful consideration and support.
Listening to Deepening Analytic Work
Contemporary psychoanalysis offers a rich and transformative therapeutic tool to alleviate suffering. Please join us virtually to hear a BPSI candidate present their deepening work to a senior analyst which will offer a lens into the therapeutic action of psychoanalysis. There will be ample time for questions and discussion about the clinical process and about the presenter’s experience as a candidate in analytic training.
Psychoanalysis & the Youth Movement in the Climate Emergency
In recent years, psychoanalysis has increasingly attended to the transgenerational transmission of trauma. Now, the young people tell us that we are creating and transmitting trauma that threatens to leave them an unlivable future. If psychoanalysts are tempted to work quietly as we traditionally and faithfully have, the young activists will face and confront our ethical indifference. We must care for their sakes and learn from them. Ethics in this emergency includes both repairing the past and responsibility for the future.

The BPSI Referral Service is closed through January. Please note BPSI does not provide direct clinical care, or handle urgent referrals. If you require urgent clinical attention, please contact your physician or go to your local emergency room.
BPSI holds hundreds of private and public events throughout the year.
Our Anti-Racism pledge is a public commitment to acknowledge the history of race and racism as a shared problem that must be addressed by psychoanalysis, as a fundamental issue of human rights, and to give sustained attention to values, priorities, and efforts to achieve meaningful change.
The Kris family invites you to give a gift in honor of Tony by contributing to the newly established Anton O. Kris Visiting Scholar Program at BPSI.
