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.  Please click here for a sampling of past conferences.

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

25th Annual Conference: Needed Relationships, The Forward Edge, and the Transformation of Traumatized States ~ May 4, 2019

Dr. Stern will present his richly integrative clinical approach organized around the principle of co-creating needed relationships uniquely with each of our patients. He will begin with an overview of the major elements of his model, interspersing theory with illustrative clinical material. He will then present an extended clinical example — a challenging case in which the nature of what was needed only emerged over a long period of time.
