Study Groups

A Study Group is usually the first stepping stone in the development towards Component Society status.  Each study group functions under the supervision of an IPA Sponsoring Committee. Selection, supervision and training of Candidates may be carried out by a Study Group only when authorized by, and under the jurisdiction of, the Sponsoring Committee.

Note: Individual analysts can be designated a “Training Analyst” and/or a "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 a "Child Analyst" for each Constituent Organisation where they are a member, when in fact they might only be a Training Analyst and/or a 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 with.
