If you are interested in psychoanalytic thinking, or would like to learn more about the psychoanalytic community and programs offered in Tucson and Phoenix, mentorship may be of interest to you.

The Mentorship Program of the Southwest Psychoanalytic Society pairs mentors (members of the Society interested in sharing their knowledge of and passion for psychoanalytic thinking and therapy) with mentees (clinicians interested in learning more about psychoanalytic approaches).

Each pair decides how to proceed, and how frequently to meet, and identifies a format.  Many mentors and mentees read articles of mutual interest and discuss clinical issues from a psychoanalytic perspective.

This program provides an excellent opportunity for early- career mental health practitioners, clinicians new to private practice, and seasoned therapists interested in exploring psychoanalytic thinking.  The sole requirement for participation in this program is membership in the Society.
