The greatest benefit I received from the Institute is that it helped me expand my therapeutic toolkit by providing a practical model for integrating psychodynamic theory into my practice.  However, my year in the Institute has helped me evolve as a therapist in ways that benefit my clients regardless of the theory or technique I am employing at any given time...

It does not take me long to gather my thoughts regarding the The Wayne Institute program and why it is unique and special. Jim Wayne and the faculty go out of their way to not only uphold the highest standards academically but also to connect personally. Signing on with The Wayne Institute is becoming a part of an academic community. The wisdom I have gained through the unparalleled learning support provided and the friendships I have made are invaluable.
