The Education and Research Collaboration of the University of Pennsylvania Department of Psychiatry and the Psychoanalytic Center of Philadelphia was formed in 2006. This Collaboration aims to develop a variety of joint ventures focusing on public education programs, facilitation of research on psychotherapy outcomes, and psychotherapy training of medical, psychology, and social work students. The organization has the full institutional support of both constituent entities, and the steering committee has put the public education programs as the top priority in our first years.
