Who We Are

The Professional Association of the National Institute for the Psychotherapies (NIPPA) was founded in 1982, and has grown from an informal group of graduates into a robust and active professional association. We are comprised of alumni, board members, faculty, supervisors, and candidates from the National Institute for the Psychotherapies (NIP), as well as colleagues from other psychoanalytic institutes and the wider mental health community.

NIPPA offers a wide range of programs and events that support the growth and development of our members as well as the larger community of psychotherapists and psychoanalysts.

We offer academic programs, including:

  • The Annual Colloquium and Brunch, featuring a presentation from a recent graduate of the NIP community with responses from two senior psychoanalysts over a brunch buffet;
  • The Focus Series, a sequence of seminars presented throughout the academic year, which offers the NIP community and greater mental health community the opportunity to hear original papers, works in progress and/or compelling case studies; and
  • The Case Presentation Series, which fosters clinical dialogue and community development among analysts at various stages of their careers.

We support NIP’s mission in a variety of ways, including:

  • Co-publishing NIP’s journal, Psychoanalytic Perspectives;
  • Providing need-based scholarships to NIP Candidates;
  • Subsidizing NIP’s Mentorship program;
  • Contributing to NIP’s Private Practice Seminar and Continuing Education events; and
  • Supporting NIP’s social and cultural programming, including NIP’s Creative Salon

NIPPA membership comes with a variety of benefits, including:

  • Inclusion in NIPPA’s directory and listserv, both resources for networking and referrals;
  • Subscription to Psychoanalytic Perspectives;
  • Discounts for NIP & NIPPA events.
  • Invitation to NIPPA social outings which offer the opportunity for networking and building a professional community.

NIPPA offers full memberships, as well as reduced fees for recent graduates and current candidates.
