Historical Note

The Boston Psychoanalytic Society and Institute is a psychoanalytic research, training, education facility that is affiliated with the American Psychoanalytic Association and the International Psychoanalytic Association. The present society and institute (abbreviated BPSI) was founded, by psychoanalyst Franz Alexander, in 1935. The BPSI is the third oldest psychoanalytic institute in the United States; only the New York Psychoanalytic Institute and Chicago Institute for Psychoanalysis are older. The Psychoanalytic Institute of New England, East (PINE) split from BPSI and formed in May 1975 under the leadership of M. Robert Gardner, MD. PINE's educational program was designed to teach psychoanalysis in a “workshop” atmosphere and is an “institute without walls.”
