THE WOMEN’S THERAPY CENTRE INSTITUTE, established in 1981, offers innovative clinical training based on contemporary psychoanalytic theory and feminist thought. We understand that a person’s socioeconomic and cultural location is integral to psychic and emotional development. Through education and a commitment to social activism, The WTCI holds a unique place at the intersection of the psychoanalytic community, the feminist movement, and the public at large.
At our core, we are a psychoanalytic psychotherapy training institute. In our two-year program, we educate postgraduate clinicians in a feminist relational model. Our mission is to amplify a feminist voice and understanding of all genders in the evolving dialogue of contemporary psychoanalytic theory.
The ethos of The WTCI embraces diversity. Continual exploration of our bodies, our psyches, and our identities in relation to complex social justice issues– such as body size, abilities, age, race and ethnicities, genders, sexualities, and class—is a key focus of our institute at every level.
The WTCI provides a special environment for critical thinking, consciousness-raising, evolving relationships, and vibrant community committed to a mission of social change greater than any one of us.
