Both a theory and therapy, psychoanalysis has been growing, changing and developing since its beginnings with Freud’s revolutionary ideas. Neither the practice nor the theory look like it did then, though the fundamental principle remains: that people are motivated by unconscious thoughts and feelings that guide their lives and shape their attitudes about themselves. Understanding these thoughts and feelings provides a path to change. Since its founding in 1932, the Chicago Institute has been a foremost center for psychoanalytic training and is a recognized leader in education, scholarship, clinical services and community outreach. The Institute’s programs reflect psychoanalytic tradition as well as evolving practice and new developments in the field.
