Psychoanalytic Training

The faculty of the Houston-Galveston Psychoanalytic Institute are all active members of the Baylor faculty. Furthermore, formal psychoanalytic training is available through the Houston-Galveston Psychoanalytic Institute, which is approved by the Board on Professional Standards of the American Psychoanalytic Association. After the second year of psychiatric residency, the resident is eligible to apply for candidate status to the Houston-Galveston Psychoanalytic Institute. Personal (training) analysis begins with one of the training analysts in the Houston-Galveston area. Formal class work begins at a later date and requires four years. Shortly after beginning course work, the candidate may begin the psychoanalytic treatment of patients. Personal analysis, supervision for the required minimum of three cases, and all course work are available in the medical center area. The HGPI also offers a two-year Advanced Studies in Psychodynamic Psychotherapy Course. Many residents avail themselves of this outstanding educational experience. Glen Gabbard, M.D. serves as the director of Psychotherapy Education for the general psychiatry residency program and serves as the Brown Foundation Chair for Psychoanalysis in the department. For further details, consult the Bulletin of the Houston-Galveston Psychoanalytic Institute. (
