Welcome to the website of the Chicago Psychoanalytic Society. Since our founding in 1931, CPS has provided a professional “home” for members of the Chicago psychoanalytic community, and a resource for all Chicagoans interested in the impact of depth psychological processes on our individual, social and cultural lives. Our members include psychoanalytically-minded psychotherapists of all disciplines and students who are interested in deepening their involvement in this field.
This year we are proud to sponsor our 2013-14 Scientific Program, a unique series of educational events featuring a diverse group of prominent psychoanalyst-scholars whose work demonstrates the scope and depth of the psychoanalytic point of view. These monthly Tuesday night presentations, which are open to the general public, provide stimulating and convenient opportunities to obtain ongoing continuing education, and each meeting is accredited to provide 1 and 1/2 hours toward fulfilling professional CEU requirements. In addition to our scientific program, we have embarked on an exciting arrangement with The CliffDwellers, one of Chicago’s premier arts clubs, to enable those who wish to dine together before attending the monthly meeting, to do so while enjoying a breathtaking view of the Chicago lakefront.
Psychoanalytic depth psychology remains a living and dynamic field and we hope all who share that interest will sign up for one of our many membership categories. I invite you to explore our site, attend one of our events, and to become better acquainted with the world of psychoanalysis and all it has to offer.
