Located in Berkeley, California, The Wright Institute was first established as a interdisciplinary institution of higher education. Faculty at the school offered an indisciplinary program which incorporated principles and concepts from several disciplines including philosophy, sociology and history. At the beginning, only a few of the school’s instructors were even psychologists. The program offered had only four required courses – once of which was “Psychopathology”. Next door to The Wright Institute was a clinic that served as a lab where students and faculty could practice.
In California, up until 1985 anyone with a PhD in any field could obtain a license to practice psychology by simply passing the California State Board exam for psychologists – and this is exactly what many of Wright Institute graduates did. Today The Wright Institute is an accredited graduate school of Clinical Psychology and a recognized leader in “critical psychoanalysis”.
