The Massachusetts Institute for Psychoanalysis (MIP) was founded in 1987 to provide high quality training in a comparative approach to psychoanalysis to graduate clinicians in all the mental health fields as well as to academic scholars. The Institute recognizes psychoanalysis as a rapidly changing field and strives to establish a spirit of questioning and inquiry in its curricula and programs. Committed to the alleviation of human suffering, MIP seeks to expand the application of psychoanalysis to an ever widening, more diverse range of individuals and cultural settings.

The Institute conducts training programs for clinicians and scholars of different levels of experience to develop broadly trained, versatile, compassionate, and ethical clinicians, researchers, teachers, and leaders. The Institute’s explicit decision not to designate a limited category of training and supervising analysts assures candidates wide freedom of choice in selecting supervisors and analysts. This policy also broadens and democratizes faculty access to serving as supervisors and personal analysts. The curricula are designed to impart a solid knowledge of the major psychoanalytic approaches while encouraging the continual exploration of the definition of psychoanalysis and the relationship between psychoanalysis and other forms of psychotherapy. MIP also fosters interaction with a wide range of other organizations and academic disciplines with the hope of contributing to the development of our field and the betterment of our world.

As a membership organization, MIP supports the efforts of graduate analysts and other members to practice, learn, and teach. As a community, MIP strives to maintain open pathways to committee membership, teaching and leadership positions, as well as an organizational structure that encourages wide participation by candidates and members in creative discussion of all aspects of Institute life. In all its endeavors, MIP remains committed to excellence, innovation, inquiry, and institutional self-examination.
