Our Clinical Services

Clinical Services » Our Clinical Services

The William Alanson White Institute established its award winning, low-cost treatment center in 1948 to provide affordable psychoanalysis and psychotherapy to members of the community. Since that time, thousands of individuals and families have been served by the highly skilled clinicians in training at the Institute. We continue to expand to respond to the community's need for a wider array of interventions to treat a range of problems with both general and specialized psychotherapy programs. For Japanese speakers, a brochure about our clinical services can be found here

General Services. The Clinical Services offers treatment to two broad groups of people: adults who seek psychotherapy or psychoanalysis and children, adolescents and their families. In addition, the White Institute offers referrals for special services to those groups as described in the linked pages.
