The Psychoanalytic Institute of Northern California (PINC) is a vibrant center for comparative psychoanalytic inquiry, research, and training. Since 1989, we have provided licensed mental health professionals the opportunity to study the full scope of psychoanalytic theory and to engage in research and clinical practice. Our training program—based on the tripartite model of course work, supervised analysis, and personal psychoanalysis—leads to a Certificate in Psychoanalysis.
Our dominant values of interdisciplinary inclusiveness, community collaboration, and participation in the evolution of psychoanalysis are all reflections of the spirit in which PINC was founded. Since 2004 PINC had been a Provisional Society of the International Psychoanalytical Association (IPA); PINC became a component society in July of 2009. While meeting IPA standards, PINC maintains its unique identity and continues to provide an innovative vision at the cutting edge of psychoanalysis.
