On Monday, June 20th (observed day for Juneteenth) PANY commemorates the celebration of Juneteenth!
Becoming a federal holiday in 2021, Juneteenth National Independence Day, a.k.a. Jubilee Day, Emancipation Day, Freedom Day, and Black Independence Day, June 19th has been celebrated as a day of African American liberation from slavery. After a quarter of a millennium of chattel slavery, the 1863 Emancipation Proclamation abolishing slavery did not reach full enforcement by Union troops within the Confederacy until June 1865, when emancipation, 2.5 years later, finally reached the last Confederate state of Texas freeing those who were still enslaved.
Our community joins the nation and with all those of the African diaspora in observing this day of profound significance. Joyful, yet painful, we celebrate the end of slavery in the United States, but we also acknowledge the ongoing work necessary in order to ensure that freedom, equality, and justice prevail and are protected for all.
From The PANY Diversity Initiative
During these difficult times, faculty and students at PANY have worked hard to keep going. PANY has continued its educational and admissions activities during the Coronavirus pandemic - including classes and case supervision for our students as well as video interviews for applicants to our training programs - via Zoom and other video and audio platforms. PANY will continue its classes when the new academic year starts in September, 2022. We have not yet decided if classes then will be via video or in-person.
As psychoanalysts, we believe in the importance of our work, in some ways especially so during these stressful times; and as hardy New Yorkers, we are committed to maintaining our presence as educators, psychoanalysts, and psychotherapists for the New York City community.
Please scroll down for more information about the admissions process for our psychoanalytic and psychotherapy training programs as well as for information about our consultation and treatment service for new patients.
For those who seek an understanding of emotional life, PANY is an education and treatment center, affiliated with NYU Grossman School of Medicine, that provides training and therapy based on psychoanalytic understanding of the core human dilemmas from childhood through adulthood.

"So, where are you from, Doc, really?": An analytic perspective on identity, race and ethnicity in the dyad
Dr. Shirke conceptualizes racism and prejudice as the consequence of intergenerational transference of experiences and attitudes about the identities of self and of others. Two analytic theories of mind can be applied to grasp this intellectually, prior to integrating emotionally this sensibility.
Presenter: Aneil Shirke, MD, PhD
Twentieth C. Philip Wilson, MD, Memorial Lecture
Williams (1997) describes a subgroup of patients with anorexia nervosa who have been on the receiving end of intrusive maternal projections and consequently develop a no-entry system of defense. This paper explores how deception may function as an aspect of this system.
A Seminar on Psychodynamic Psychotherapy Technique
Making Gabriel Byrne a Better Therapist
Ms. Abrams will show clips of "in Treatment" which highlight psychodynamic psychotherapy principles and use them as a springboard for discussion about technique.
Presenter: Ellen Abrams, LCSW
The Exceptional Status of the Dream and Dreamwork in Psychoanalysis. A thing of the past?
Sadomasochism; Understanding and Working with the
Self-defeating behaviors are present to some degree in every psychodynamic treatment. We will explore ways in which sadomasochism manifests, particularly in the transference/countertransference arena.
Presenter: Robert Calcaterra, MD
Psychoanalysis changes lives.
At a time when training in most mental health fields is focused on time limited biological and behavioral interventions, we believe in the importance of training clinicians to do in-depth work with patients, providing effective and durable results.
We believe in making affordable treatment available to the New York City community through our consultation and treatment service.
We are dedicated to providing the highest quality in psychoanalytic treatment and education.
