* Recent outcome research indicates that psychodynamic therapy is effective and that the benefits patients receive are enduring and even tend to grow with time.

PAPPTP, a program of the San Francisco Center for Psychoanalysis (SFCP), was established in 2007 to provide high quality psychoanalytic psychotherapy training for therapists in the Peninsula/South Bay region. In addition, the Program seeks to bring together psychoanalytically-oriented clinicians in a community of common interests. So far we have had three cohorts of students in our Two-Year Programs (see below), and we have now added a new Fellowship Year (click here for more information).
