Welcome to Acps

The Arizona Center for Psychoanalytic Studies (ACPS) is a not-for-profit educational institution that provides training in psychoanalysis and psychoanalytic psychotherapy. ACPS also offers continuing education programs for members of the mental health community, and promotes dialogue with colleagues in the humanities, fine arts, and social sciences. ACPS engenders an open, supportive and stimulating environment that fosters creativity, independent thinking and personal growth.

ACPS is currently not able to offer any programs.  Classes may resume if a sufficient number of students commit to the program and faculty members are available to plan and teach the sessions.  You may email the Director of Education, Dr. Sydney Arkowitz, at if you are interested in learning more about psychoanalytic education opportunities.

As pandemic restrictions ease up ACPS hopes to continue their mission of training psychoanalysts, supporting professional activities, working with other mental health disciplines, providing a forum for psychoanalysts and individuals to present their work, and supporting the psychoanalytic community.
