Who We Are

The American Association for Psychoanalytic Education (AAPE) is an independent, non-profit 501 (c) (3) standards organization. AAPE fosters excellence in psychoanalytic education by establishing, promoting, and maintaining standards for psychoanalytic education in member institutes and centers. AAPE achieves its goals by means of periodic review of standards, site visits, and consultations.

AAPE includes institutes and training programs that have agreed to meet these standards.

The AAPE Board of Directors and its committees seek active participation from our institutes and professional organizations on issues bearing on standards and psychoanalytic education. AAPE also seeks advice and input from our candidate advisory committee.
