Welcome to the Boston Graduate School of Psychoanalysis.
In reviewing our website, you may notice a few things that are different about BGSP. You might notice that BGSP is the only regionally accredited, degree granting, independent psychoanalytic school in the country. You might discover our history of opening doors to psychoanalytic study, and admitting exceptional students from a wide range of academic backgrounds. Perhaps you’ll read about the award-winning research conducted at the School. Or, you may learn of the varied ways our graduates apply what they have learned, in clinical settings, but also in education, business, politics, and the arts.
But there’s one other element that stands out in BGSP's approach to psychoanalytic training, across all campuses and programs: emotional learning. In all aspects of their academic careers at BGSP, students are encouraged to connect their emotional experiences with theoretical concepts, making possible new levels of academic excellence and personal growth.
No one will tell you it’s easy. The challenges and rewards will come in the most unexpected ways. Whether through the personal analysis undertaken by all students, the use of classroom process to demonstrate ideas, or the combination of the entire BGSP experience, students grapple with emotional life in ways they did not imagine possible.
It’s one more way BGSP is transforming psychoanalytic training. We invite you to learn more.
