Unlocking Creativity Through Psychoanalysis

Our Research

The Foundation has provided nine grants for psychoanalytic treatment to creative individuals who were willing to have their treatment, work and lives followed in research.  Starting in 1993, in consultation with prominent psychoanalysts and clinical researchers, the Foundation staff carefully designed a program of treatment and data collection for this initial cohort.  Although these grants are no longer offered, the data associated with them, including longitudinal studies, constitute the largest archive of recorded psychoanalytic treatment with creative individuals in the world.  This data is now shared with the Emory University Center for Psychoanalytic Research and Education, where there are increased resources for its study.
