Membership of the IPA is usually open only to psychoanalysts who trained at one of the IPA’s Constituent Organizations. Completing training successfully at such an organization normally gives you automatic membership of the IPA.
If you are considering applying to become an IPA psychoanalyst, please contact your local IPA Constituent Organization, which will also have information on annual membership fees. If there is no Constituent Organization in your country, please email the IPA about the possibility of becoming a Direct Member. The criteria for this are similar to those for membership through a Constituent Organization.
