Institutional Membership

About Membership:
IAPSP offers membership on an organizational as well as an individual basis. Institutional Membership is offered to any group organized to study, practice or promote mental health. Please note: your organization does not have to be a teaching or training institute to become an institutional member. And while Self Psychology is a theory based on psychoanalytic principles, psychoanalytic training is not in itself a prerequisite for membership nor is any allegiance to the theory of Self Psychology. Finally, institutional membership makes available to your individual members a number of benefits, most important, reduced membership fees.

IAPSP is a nonprofit organization comprising more than 600 mental health workers more than a dozen institutions from around the world. In actuality, the IAPSP membership encompasses a variety of mental health fields, as well as others from diverse disciplines who are interested in a dialogue between and among their particular fields of study and the theory and practice of Self Psychology.

Among the many synergistic benefits associated with a Institutional membership in IAPSP, the following specific benefits are available to the member institution and its individual members:

  • Individual members of each Member Institution will receive a 10% discount on IAPSP membership dues.
  • The leadership of Member Institutions will be included in a forum to discuss and collaborate on issues such as establishing curriculums, establishing criteria and training for supervisors, developing programming, establishing non-profit status, leadership and governance issues, and establishing and maintaining CEU and CME accreditations, etc.
  • Institutional Members will receive a URL link on IAPSP's website back to their website.
  • Institutional Members will receive (1) annual subscription to the International Journal of Psychoanalytic Self Psychology
  • Institutional Members will have access to the Speakers Bureau

I invite you to apply and invite your organization to join many others across the globe in critical conversations affecting mental health today.
