After 29 years and the successful graduation of many students the ACPS Board regretfully announces that a decision has been made to close the Institute. 

To make the preparation, documentation and time commitment demanded of the faculty worthwhile it was expected that a class would consist of a minimum number of students.  There have been inquiries regarding psychoanalytic training but, for many years, few people willing to commit to the program.  The limited number of faculty members also made it difficult to provide all of the required training.

With the graduation of the final student last year it was determined that it was time to use the remaining ACPS resources to provide educational connections to other resources within the psychoanalytic community.  The Board will be meeting to discuss the best way to do this.

The decision was not an easy one but the Board members remain committed to advocating for and promoting psychoanalytic thought and training.
