Membership in ISPSO is open to all who are interested in our purpose of “exploring how psychoanalytic thinking and practices can further our study of organizations and the wider social
influences that impact them.” A training in the field or a psychoanalytic therapy would make your membership more beneficial.
Our field includes the study of unconscious and conscious dynamics at play in organizations. These may include culture, leadership, followership, authority, power relations, roles, teams, networks, stakeholder relations, creativity, innovation, emotions, identity, structures, and organizational change.
We also study how wider psycho-social conditions are impacted by various forces, including, technology, globalization, and local conditions, and how changing societal dynamics such as gender and identity impact organizational dynamics. Our international membership consists of consultants, academics, clinicians, coaches, managers, leaders, students and others who apply psychoanalysis to their work. ISPSO has a diverse mixture of members with a rich exchange of ideas, best-practices, theories, knowledge, and experiences.
When applying we would like to understand your interest and background in our field. Therefore we ask:
We have four categories of members, they all have the same rights, they just differ in fee contribution.
If you are living under very special circumstances as in war or economic country crisis, the fee can be reduced to what is possible. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for application.
Payment can be made either in USD or equivalent EU, AUD and GBP. We look forward to receiving your application. Thank you!
Please note that the application approval process usually takes about 3 weeks.
