Become a Member or Member+

IPI’s membership program is designed to strengthen the links among IPI colleagues throughout the world. Membership in IPI guarantees numerous benefits and substantial savings to the member and helps to maintain IPI’s high quality of teaching and training. IPI members will join an international network of highly trained clinicians and professionals.

The benefits of membership include:

  • distance learning via online classes and study groups,
  • reduced fees and tuition to IPI programs
  • access to the PEP disk via PEPWEB, offering online access to all the main analytic journals, Freud’s Standard Edition and much more
  • half price subscription to Couple and Family Psychoanalysis Journal (the link to subscribe will be sent in your membership confirmation email)
  • access to IPI’s private discussion board forum

There are three levels of membership. Full Membership is available to those who are enrolled in or have completed substantial training at IPI or an equivalent institution. Others may choose Associate or Supporting Membership levels to suit their particular needs.*

Member+ Plus Accounts

All the benefits of the regular membership level plus an IPI Zoom Pro online videoconference account
With an IPI Zoom account you will be able to host online meetings with multiple people at the same time. IPI has a HIPAA  business associate agreement with Zoom, which provides a HIPAA compliant platform for our accounts. (HIPPA compliance is strongly recommended for all internet-mediated clinical work and clinical teaching.)

Current members, you can upgrade to the Plus account and only pay the difference in price from your current membership level.


In January 2021, we switched to a rolling membership, so your next membership payment will be due a year from today. Keep in mind that pepweb membership can only be updated quarterly, so your pepweb membership may be delayed depending on when you enroll with us. 

The strength of IPI lies in the commitment of its members. Membership fosters IPI’s growth and development as a learning community. We look forward to welcoming you!

*Applications for Full Membership will be reviewed by the faculty since verification of training is required. Application for Associate and Supporting Membership will be granted, upon application, without review.
