ICP+P offers at least four conferences each year. Two are free to members. The others offer members a reduced registration fee, as do our short courses. In order to teach across multiple modalities, we distribute papers by the presenter prior to the meeting date, we provide small discussion groups during all-day meetings and we create opportunities to ask questions with the presenter.

ICP+P welcomes renowned speakers at our conferences and institutes. In recent years, these have included Beatrice Beebe, Doris Brothers, Sandra Buechler, Andrea Celenza, Bruce Coburn, Christine Courtois, Shelley Doctors, James Fosshage, Richard Geist, Jackie Gotthold, Frank Lachmann, Kimberlyn Leary, Joseph Lichtenberg, Donna Orange, Philip Ringstrom, Robert Stolorow, Frank Summers, Judith Teicholz, and Usha Tummala-Narra. We have offered Institutes (a series of four all-day meetings across one academic year) in Relational Psychology; Self Psychology; and Embodying the Unspoken Self: Attachment, Trauma, Neurobiology and the Body.

Limited scholarships may be offered on some conferences. Click here to submit a scholarship application for an upcoming conference.

Here is what we are offering now…

From Reactivity to Empowerment in Couple Therapy: An Integrative Relational-Neurobiological Approach ~ Mar 26, 2023

This conference explores ways to identify and diagram the couple’s dance using the Vulnerability Cycle Diagram first described by Mona Fishbane and Michele Scheinkman in 2004. Dr. Fishbane’s approach enhances partners’ relational empowerment, including self-regulation, choice, living according to one’s higher goals and values, and reaching for one’s “best self.” Dr. Constance Cannon will be presenting a middle-aged, heterosexual couple. She and Dr. Fishbane will discuss how the concepts presented can be applied to the clinical case material.
