CE/CME Courses

We present a broad array of live and on-demand continuing education (CE) / continuing medical education (CME) courses for psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, nurses, and other mental health professionals, the majority of which are provided without charge.


Expand your expertise through the Adult Psychoanalytic Training Program and Fellowship in Hospital-Based Psychotherapy for psychiatrists and psychologists.

Elective in Psychodynamic Psychiatry

The Elective in Psychodynamic Psychiatry is designed to provide students of psychiatry (including both medical students and psychiatric residents) with psychodynamic perspectives that complement the medical model that is dominant in mainstream psychiatric approaches to major psychiatric illness.

Erikson Scholar Program

The Erikson Scholar-in-Residence Program creates and maintains an exchange of ideas between academicians and clinicians to explore interactions between the internal and external worlds. This interdisciplinary program enriches our understanding of each, which often has application to larger societal problems.
