The mission of the Baltimore Washington Institute for Psychoanalysis comprises three main elements:

  • to train mental health professionals (psychiatrists, psychologists, and social workers) and selected other professionals in the theory and practice of psychoanalysis.
  • to provide courses, lectures, information services, and research opportunities to mental health practitioners and other interested persons in the community as well as to our own members.
  • to provide a variety of services to the community, including affordable psychoanalysis and psychotherapy, and consultation to day-care providers.
