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.

Wounded Healers and Suffering Strangers: Navigating Ethical Dilemmas Together ~ Dec 5, 2020

Socio-cultural-political and environmental forces in the 21st century have converged to generate complex ethical dilemmas for the practice of psychotherapy. In 2020 the traumatic stress of the COVID-19 pandemic, cascading economic vulnerabilities, systemic inequities impacting marginalized communities, racial injustice, and polarization in American politics is expressed in our consulting spaces through dissociated silence, cautious whispers, aching grief, and rageful torment. Neither therapist nor client is immune from these stressors causing injury—moral, psychic, relational, and physical.
