Center, a non-profit 501 (c)(3) educational organization, was created
through the vision and generosity of the Carter-Jenkins family to
meet the need for specialized educational and clinical services.
Based on psychoanalytic concepts, The Center brings to the community
valuable insights into the many dimensions of human development,
relationships and emotion.
We are dedicated
to the promotion of mental health all over the world by means of
education and to the application of psychoanalytic principles to
contemporary societal issues and clinical practice, The Center promotes
the in-depth understanding of human experience from infancy through
old age. Our developmental framework highlights the unique life
experience of every individual and emphasizes the existence of wide
variations within normality. We place importance on understanding
the complex interplay of motives and thoughts outside of everyday
awareness that influence perspective, impact relationships, and
help shape character.
is then to the improvement of mental health on an international
basis by means of education of professionals and citizens at large,
as well as to the application of the psychoanalytic perspective
that guides parts of our work and enriches the quality of our educational
programs and clinical services.
