A variety of individual courses are offered each year taught by members of the Western New England Psychoanalytic Society.  Participants include mental health professionals and trainees, as well as others from outside the mental health field, at various levels of knowledge of psychoanalytic concepts.  A course can serve as an introduction to psychoanalytic concepts or a way to deepen one's psychoanalytic understanding.  Course topics have included theory and technique, developmental considerations, and studies of imaginative literature.

If there is a course you would like us to offer, please let us know by emailing Dr. Fried at deborah.fried1@gmail.com
