Why give to BGSP?
People give to BGSP because they believe that understanding and addressing the human unconscious is an invaluable tool for relieving human suffering and promoting constructive interactions.
They have witnessed the power of a BGSP education to teach students to work with clients who are in pain, with children struggling to learn or get by, with groups in distress or chaos, with families, and within themselves. They appreciate the contribution that psychoanalysis makes to understanding the many challenges of living in today’s diverse and interconnected world.
They recognize the level of dedication and commitment of BGSP’s faculty, students, and volunteers – people who invest their time, expertise, money, and emotional lives to enable others to learn. Through BGSP’s affordable Therapy Center and programs in the Boston Public Schools, they see the impact that BGSP makes on the local communities.
And, they recognize the costs of providing exceptional education.
“I am proudest of BGSP’s Therapy Center, which offers supervised psychoanalysis and psychotherapy at affordable rates. Around 200 patients, mainly young adults figuring out life’s pathways, avail themselves of this invaluable service annually.”Joyce Fredkin
