The Cincinnati Psychoanalytic Institute (CPI) is a non-profit educational institution that offers post-graduate training to mental health professionals. Our educational programs – unique in the Ohio, Kentucky, and Indiana tri-state area – are based on the theories of psychoanalysis. Our faculty is committed to passing on techniques and practices that bring about lasting change in the lives of patients.
Our core mission is to attract and teach mental health professionals who seek intensive training in the psychoanalytic approach. In addition, we offer programs for those in need of continuing education credits and sponsor events for the public which explore the arts, music, literature and societal issues from a psychoanalytic point of view. We are closely aligned and develop partnerships with other interested organizations.
