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.
