The Denver Psychoanalytic Society

The Denver Psychoanalytic Society is a nonprofit organization organized for the purpose of providing professional continuing education, sponsoring and disseminating research, and advancement of psychoanalytic and psychodynamic psychotherapy for the benefit of humanity.

 A great deal of our time, energy and resources are focused on outreach to the community at large in the form of education, consultation, and clinical services.

Some of our activities have included:

  • Scientific Programs offered monthly free of charge to the community
  • Continuing Education for mental health professionals
  • Special programs for parents, teachers, lawyers and doctors
  • ProBono consultation with public and private school personnel
  • Denver Psychoanalytic Society Newsletter offered free of charge to the community

Contemporary psychoanalysts and psychoanalytically oriented psychotherapists study broad fields such as relational theory, attachment theory, systems theory, infant research, and child development – all having to do with how we become who we are and live our everyday lives. In addition, our members have a wide range of professional and personal interests, including research in a variety of psychological areas, as well as in pharmacology and neurobiology. Analytic therapists vary widely in their points of view and the style in which they work with their patients, making for lively discourse within the field, and for continuous improvement in therapeutic technique.
