The Erikson Institute for Education, Research, and Advocacy of the Austen Riggs Center offers psychoanalytic education, supports and conducts research, and undertakes community engagement. The Institute helps clinicians, educators, researchers, and scholars understand and respond to problems individuals, groups, and society face.
Professionals interested in psychoanalytic theory and practice can find learning opportunities through Erikson Institute-sponsored CE/CME events. We train postdoctoral psychiatrists and psychologists in our ACPEinc-accredited Fellowship and psychiatrists in training in our Elective in Psychodynamic Psychiatry. Erikson Scholars-in-Residence visit to pursue a project in their area of specialization.
The Erikson Institute offers diverse continuing education courses to enhance your professional development. We are accredited by several entities and credit may be available for physicians, psychologists, social workers, and nurses. (Consult each course listing for specific guild approvals.)
