Founded on psychological theory stemming from the work of Sigmund Freud, the field of psychoanalysis continues to be a force in psychological therapy more than 100 years after its inception. Many practicing psychiatrists and psychologists are trained in psychoanalysis and utilize its effective and proven therapeutic methods.
If you are looking for a therapist who practices psychoanalysis, be sure to check credentials first. A trained psychoanalyst has attended an accredited college or university and/or an institute recognized by a psychoanalytic board of authority.
One such accredited institution is the Boston Graduate School of Psychoanalysis. This college, with locations in Boston and New York, received its accreditation from the New England Association of Schools and Colleges and offers a thorough and stringent curriculum in the field.
