International Psychoanalytical Association


International Psychoanalytical Association

The International Psychoanalytical Association (IPA) is an association including 11,800 psychoanalysts as members and works with 70 constituent organizations. It was founded in 1910 by Sigmund Freud, on an idea proposed by Sandor Ferenczi.

The IPA is the world’s primary accrediting and regulatory body for psychoanalysis. Its mission is to assure the continued vigour and development of psychoanalysis for the benefit of psychoanalytic patients.

The IPA's aims include creating new psychoanalytic groups, stimulating debate, conducting research, developing training policies and establishing links with other bodies. It organizes a large biennial Congress which is open to all.

History of IPA

In 1902 Sigmund Freud started to meet every week with colleagues to discuss his work and so "Psychological Wednesday Society" was born. By 1908 there were 14 regular members and some guests including Max Eitingon, Carl Gustav Jung, Karl Abraham, and Ernest Jones, all future Presidents of the IPA [http://www.psychoanalyse.ru/gallery/images/freudfriends/f-commit_1922_berlin_l.jpgGroup portrait: Freud and associates in a photograph taken ca. 1922, Berlin.

Meeting took place in Salzburg, on 27 April 1908 and Jung named it the "First Congress for Freudian Psychology" and it is later reckoned to be the first International Psychoanalytical Congress, even so the IPA had not yet been founded.

IPA was established at the next Congress held at Nuremberg in March 1910. [http://www.ipa.org.uk/default.aspx?page=39 How did the IPA begin?] ] Sigmund Freud considered an international organization to be essential to advance his ideas. In 1914 Freud published a paper entitled [http://psychclassics.yorku.ca/Freud/History/ History of the Psychoanalytic Movement] .
