Background and Traditions 

The Psychoanalytic Center of the Carolinas unites three long-acting psychoanalytic groups in the North Carolina region: North Carolina Psychoanalytic Society (NCPS), North Carolia Psychoanalytic Foundation (NCPF) and the Psycholanalytic Education Center of the Carolinas (PECC). Our mission is to promote emotional resilience by understanding the mind through psychoanalytic edcation, practice and service. We offer continuing education programs and lectures, and courses in psychoanalytic practice for general attendance or in training programs in psychoanalysis and psychoanalytic psychotherapy, leading to a Certificate of Completion. We also have a free call-in referral service to connect individuals with a psychoanalytic psychotherapist or a psychoanalyst.
