The Oregon Psychoanalytic Center is a non-profit education and community outreach organization. OPC offers extensive Continuing Education courses to mental health professionals throughout the year, and also offers arts-related talks through OPC Art Outreach, which furthers appreciation for psychoanalytic ideas in connection with the arts.

The Oregon Psychoanalytic Institute (OPI) is the Center’s formal four-year psychoanalytic training program, which educates mental health professionals in the theory and practice of psychoanalysis. OPC also offers a two-year certificate program in adult psychoanalytic psychotherapy through its new Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy Program, as well as the Secure Beginnings Program, which trains licensed psychotherapists in the direct treatment and intervention of the mother-infant pair.
