General Information

Welcome to the Institute for the Advancement of Self Psychology (IASP) Website. IASP was established in 1994 to train professionals in Psychoanalytic Theory and Technique with an emphasis on Contemporary Self Psychology.

The Institute for the Advancement of Self Psychology offers a training program in Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis.

The program offers seminars and clinical supervision emphasizing contemporary models of psychoanalytic theory and practice.

The program is designed for mental health professionals with sufficient experience in the practice of individual psychotherapy who are interested in developing their knowledge and skill in contemporary psychoanalysis. Interested candidates from related disciplines will be considered on an individual basis.

The program offers three levels of training:

  • 2 year psychoanalytic psychotherapy training
  • 4 year advanced psychoanalytic psychotherapy
  • 4 year training program in psychoanalysis

Each level has three components: Personal psychoanalytic psychotherapy or psychoanalysis, supervised psychotherapy/psychoanalysis and weekly seminars.
