To Benefit All

Founded in 1958 by four determined women psychoanalysts who were committed to the highest level of professional development, IPTAR remains true to our founders’ vision of an inclusive, ever-evolving psychoanalysis. IPTAR became a member of the International Psychoanalytic Association (IPA) in 1980. In addition to our world-renowned training program in Adult Psychoanalysis, IPTAR created an IPA approved Integrated Track in Adult and Child Psychoanalysis. Other innovative programs at IPTAR include an LP track leading to licensure as a psychoanalyst in New York State, the Respecialization Program in which those interested in psychoanalysis can get a deeper understanding of the field before making a commitment to training as an analyst, a Child and Adolescent Psychotherapy Program (CAP), the Anni Bergman Parent-Infant Program, the Gould Center for Psychoanalytic Organizational Study and Consultation, the International Students Program (SEVIS), an Asylum program and an internship/externship program. The IPTAR Clinical Center (ICC), recognized by the American Psychoanalytic Association as one of the finest community mental health centers in the United States, provides reduced cost, high quality psychotherapy and psychoanalysis in many languages to the NYC community.
