Membership is open to any individual interested in contemporary psychodynamic models of treatment. Our more than 200 members participate in monthly study groups, in-depth training programs, short courses and cutting edge conferences.
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.
Free study groups facilitated by ICP+P members are a central aspect of membership. They provide a great opportunity to grow clinically, and to form and maintain new collegial relationships and friendships.
ICP+P offers three training programs and a fellowship program. Contemporary Approaches to Psychodynamic Psychotherapy (CAPP), the Psychoanalytic Training Program, and the Couples Therapy Training Program are immersive training programs open to all licensed mental health practitioners. ICP+P offers a one-year Fellowship Program for practicing clinicians, residents, interns, and advanced graduate students from mental health fields including psychology, psychiatry, social work, counseling and nursing.
As a nonprofit 501c3 organization, we rely heavily on volunteer effort. The achievements of our committees are deeply satisfying and great friendships and relationships of trust are made through the work.
