The Michigan Psychoanalytic Council (MPC) was formed in 1988 as an organization dedicated to the study of classical and contemporary psychoanalytic concepts, and to the training of psychoanalysts and psychoanalytically oriented psychotherapists. Founding members were interested in creating an organization that would run on egalitarian and gender sensitive principles. The formal training program offers certification in Adult and Child Psychoanalysis to qualified individuals, as well as in Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy. MPC also offers regular scientific meetings and other programs for professionals in psychology, psychiatry, social work, and related fields. Courses are offered in Ann Arbor, East Lansing, Metro Detroit, and Grand Rapids.
