I am a practicing psychoanalyst, but came from a program that was, in retrospect, dogmatic and even authoritarian. In contrast, EPIS Psychoanalysis is much more innovative, flexible, and forward-thinking. I am truly enjoying my work at the Institute.


They tailor EPIS study programs to your individual schedule and budget, which allowed me to start the program much sooner than I thought I could. This flexibility and their obvious care for me has allowed me to commit significant portions of my professional time to these studies.


I have just started my association with this institute but already their seminars have been valuable and useful to my theoretical work. I recommend EPIS to anyone in the field.


I live in a foreign country but was wholeheartedly welcomed into EPIS and have been able to contribute articles to their publications for any years.


I needed an educational program that would fit within my budget. Because EPIS education has part-time and half-time options, I was able to fit my schedule into a program, and am still going strong.


I am a retired professor but needed a community of psychoanalysts and philosophers, both for personal and for professional reasons. I found a home at this institute and have made life-long friendships here.


I received my BA and for personal reasons, decided not to pursue graduate school. I have dedicated my professional life to being a writer, but I realized that I needed more understanding of humans to do a better job. EPIS’s educational programs offered me that understanding, and I am still involved with them today.


EPIS is not like other psychoanalytic institutes. It is not dogmatic, and while they study the history of important psychoanalytic texts, their focus is the future. In addition, while many institutes of this kind are limited to psychoanalysis, EPIS also focuses on phenomenology, critical theory, ontology, and other disciplines like set theory and category theory as a way of understanding the human condition. It was quite the learning experience, and still is!


I had an MA in Psychology and wasn’t sure that I wanted to invest in a PhD. So, I took EPIS seminars, and eventually enrolled in one of its post-graduate programs in psychoanalysis. It was a life changing experience for me – very positive – and I went on with my work as an independent scholar, but with a much stronger foundation.


After my PhD in Philosophy, I wasn’t sure what to do next. I decided to study at the EPIS Psychoanalytic Institute for a few years, and it was highly rewarding. Now I am a professor at a respected university with a background in psychoanalytic thinking that was super-rigorous, which I received from EPIS. It was well worth the investment of time and money.


I have studied in both Europe and in America, so have had good exposure to many different psychoanalytic institutes. The one that I found most helpful to my own work as a scholar and professor is EPIS. Even though I finished one of its programs several years ago, the EPIS doors are always open to me whenever I need help with a new theoretical project.


I truly enjoyed presenting my work at one of the EPIS Conferences. It was a welcoming but rigorous experience developed new collegial relationships, and many new ideas for a book project I later published.


I have been a practicing psychologist for 30 years, and after 7 years at EPIS, have deepened my understanding of the human condition, which has made me a better practitioner for all my patients and clients.


The EPIS Psychoanalytic Institute is the best I have experienced or heard of. I have a diploma from another well-known institute, and EPIS programs are superior.
