About us

Who we are and what we do

The Sacramento Psychoanalytic Society is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization lead and supported entirely by volunteers who are dedicated to the promotion of psychoanalysis within the greater Sacramento region.

We pursue our mission through organizing educational programs, reading groups, monthly presentations, case conferences, networking events, and hosting speakers of interest for the community of Sacramento – all are welcome to get involved!
