Institute for Psychoanalytic Training and Research

In 1958, IPTAR was founded as a membership society for analysts sharing an interest in Freud’s theory and technique. IPTAR continues to be a community committed to the lifelong study of psychoanalysis.

The Institute of Psychoanalytic Training and Research (IPTAR) is a professional association of psychoanalysts formed to promote the advancement of psychoanalysis as a practice and a profession. IPTAR provides clinical services to the community through its consultation center, offers professional training programs in psychoanalysis and child psychotherapy to aspiring professionals, promotes and supports psychoanalytic research in areas critical to professional concerns, and provides scientific and clinical programs for the professional development of its members.

IPTAR is a New York State provider of Continuing Education (CE) Credits for Social Workers (LCSW), Licensed Mental Health Counselors (LMHC), Psychoanalysts (LP), and Licensed Creative Arts Therapists (LCAT). We offer a wide range of CE credit eligible programs, short seminars, conferences, workshops, and lectures that allow participants to expand and deepen their practice.
