In certain instances patients may wish to undergo the rigors of psychoanalytic treatment, depending on how ambitious they are about changing and how limiting they feel their symptoms are tending to be. Psychoanalysis requires one be willing to commit the resources required to engage in an in-depth exploration of one’s psyche. Psychoanalysis involves being seen multiple times each week for an extended period of time.
Psychoanalysis has evolved considerably over the course of time and the methods employed today have changed in accordance with new discoveries in the field. Psychoanalysis is offered by therapists who have undergone lengthy in-depth training at established and accredited psychoanalytic institutes. Dr. Tuch received his psychoanalytic training at the Los Angeles Psychoanalytic Society and Institute (now, The New Center for Psychoanalysis) after graduating from U.C.L.A.’s Psychiatric Training Program. He’s been certified in Psychoanalysis by The American Psychoanalytic Association and has been promoted to the rank of Training and Supervising Analyst—an analyst who is singled-out to analyze and supervise analysts-in-training. Dr. Tuch serves as Training and Supervising Analyst at both The New Center for Psychoanalysis (NCP) the Psychoanalytic Center of California (PCC).
