Membership Benefits

Membership in ICP+P is open to anyone interested in contemporary psychoanalytically-based models of treatment. The benefits of membership include:

  • Free monthly study groups, facilitated by ICP+P members. Some groups are intended for in-depth exploration of a selected topic, others choose several topics for exploration. Some groups are organized so that CE credits are available.
  • A minimum of four conferences throughout the year, of which two are free to members, and the remainder have reduced fees for members. CE credits are given to participants in ICP+P’s educational programs.
  • Free use of our library of books and journals, a subscription to ICP+P’s monthly newsletter, and access to the “Members Only” section of ICP+P’s web site.
  • Free admission to ICP+P social events, such as the ICP+P Graduation Ceremony, and the Annual Pot Luck Supper and Town Hall Meeting.
  • Ready access to participation in the leadership of ICP+P. Ours is an open association. Many new members have found that committee assignments are easy to secure and that new ideas for expanding ICP+P’s services to its members are welcomed and usually can be quickly instituted.
  • In order to welcome you to ICP+P and introduce you to our membership community each new ICP+P Member will be contacted by one of our Membership Coordinator to interview you for inclusion in the monthly ICP+P Newsletter column: “New Member Introduction.” See an example, “New Member Introductions.”
  • Free access to ICP+P members-only listserv for information sharing and peer-to-peer advice.
  • Members receive a 10% discount on IAPSP individual membership annual dues.
