Component Societies

The IPA recognizes Component Societies as qualified to select, supervise and train Candidates for the practice of clinical psychoanalysis. They are also responsible for professional standards, applying ethical and professional standards set in accordance with IPA criteria. A Component Society functions autonomously.

Individual analysts can be designated a “Training Analyst” and/or "Child Analyst" by a Constituent Organisation.  Analysts who are members of more than one Constituent Organisation (Dual members) will appear in the Roster on this website as a “Training Analyst” and/or "Child Analyst" for each Constituent Organisation where they are a member, when in fact they might only be a Training Analyst and/or Child Analyst with one of those bodies.   We apologise for this technical problem that we hope to fix as soon as possible. In the meantime please contact us at if you wish to know which Society a Dual Member is a Training Analyst and/or Child Analyst with.
