Founded in 1958 as a membership society for analysts sharing an interest in psychoanalytic theory and technique, IPTAR continues to be a community committed to the lifelong study of psychoanalysis.

The IPTAR Society is a home for the community of IPTAR analysts. It offers opportunities for the continual reworking of our psychoanalytic identity through dialogue and reflection, in a dialectic between innovation and tradition. Our ongoing psychoanalytic exploration is enhanced by a series of structured programs, scientific meetings, workshops, study groups, research activities, and publications. These are open to the IPTAR membership and candidates, to interested analysts and analysts-in-training, and to the larger mental health community.

Graduates of other IPA institutes and those with equivalent training may apply for IPTAR membership. For more information, please contact the Chair of the Membership Committee, Dr. Ellen Marakowitz:



Committees are a vital and vibrant part of IPTAR’s organizational life.  From admissions to fellowship, from clinic policy to curriculum, every facet of IPTAR is guided by our committees. Some committee chairs are elected and others appointed by the President, the Dean, and the ICC directors. The Chairs in turn select committee members.

If you are interested in joining a committee a complete list can be found in the member/candidate portal.

Candidates’ Organization

IPTAR candidates have an active Candidates’ Organization (CO). Although it is independent of the Institute structure, it has the full support of the Institute. The Candidates’ Organization is the voice of the candidates at the Institute and a resource for candidates to learn and gain support from each other. The CO nominates candidates to sit as representatives on the three IPTAR Boards. It channels candidates, who so wish, into many Institute and Society committees and functions.
