SPSI must augment annual revenue from faculty dues and tuition in order to cover operational expenses. The Annual Fund helps support our educational programs and makes, SPSI community projects possible including,
- SPSI’s Referral Service – a valuable resource for the Seattle area community, providing referrals for psychotherapy and psychoanalysis, often at a reduced fee.
- SPSI Continuing Education symposia – bringing eminent psychoanalysts to the Northwest to share knowledge and expertise, and hosting free programs which explore the intersection between the arts and psychoanalysis.
- SPSI’s faculty members not only volunteer to teach in the programs but also consult with community-based organizations to provide psychoanalytically informed perspectives for treatment of homeless and at-risk children.
