The San Francisco Center for Psychoanalysis was organized in 2007, combining the San Francisco Psychoanalytic Institute & Society, founded in 1941, with the San Francisco Foundation for Psychoanalysis, founded in 1991. The SFCP is a not for profit organization with more than 200 practicing analysts and more than 45 candidates (psychoanalysts in training). The Center provides an extensive training program in psychoanalysis. The Center also sponsors a large, vibrant Extension Division which offers classes and seminars for continuing education credit to mental health professionals upon approval of membership. Outreach programs may also be found on our calendar. These events are free and offer no continuing education credit and are open to the general public. In addition, SFCP maintains a Low / Moderate Fee Referral Services for adults, children and adolescents as well as providing other mental health services and programs for the general community.
