The Boston Psychoanalytic Society and Institute is a psychoanalytic research, training, education facility that is affiliated with the American Psychoanalytic Association and the International Psychoanalytic Association. Although the first psychoanalytic society in the greater Boston area was founded in 1906 and a few more would follow, especially after Sigmund Freud's visit to Worcester, Massachusetts in 1920, the present society and institute (abbreviated BPSI) was founded, by psychoanalyst Franz Alexander, only in 1935. The BPSI is the third oldest psychoanalytic institute in the United States; only the New York Psychoanalytic Institute and Chicago Institute for Psychoanalysis are older.

Major psychoanalysts who have been associated with the institute include Franz Alexander, Helene Deutsch, Felix Deutsch, and more recently Philip Holzman and Arnold Modell. In its early years, the Department of Psychiatry at the Massachusetts General Hospital was strongly associated with the BPSI, especially through its first chief Stanley Cobb.
