ISTANBUL PSYCHOANALYTIC ASSOCIATION HAS BEEN RECOGNIZED AS A FULL MEMBER OF INTERNATIONAL PSYCHOANALYTICAL ASSOCIATION
Istanbul Psychoanalytical Group, which was founded in 1994, evolved to the Istanbul Psychoanalytical Association in 2001. The first step of our association towards being a component of IPA was to become a "Study Group” in 2007. We were accepted as a “Provisional Society” in 2012. Finally, on 27 July 2017, after the voting at the General Assembly of the 50th IPA Congress in Buenos Aires, we were admitted to IPA membership as a “Component Society”.
This process started in 2007 with the auditing of IPA sponsoring and liaison committees. At the end, we became fully authorized to select candidates and undertake their training and supervision. We acquired autonomy by assuming full responsibility in meeting the professional and ethical standards in line with IPA criteria.
We would like to thank all the people and institutions who have supported us.
