LAISPS Student Society

The LAISPS Student Society fosters personal and professional growth and discovery.

This program was created for graduate psychology students and interns who possess a special interest in psychoanalysis or psychodynamic psychotherapy. The Student Society offers many opportunities to connect, explore, and be mentored by clinicians, all of whom have specialized training and many years of experience in the field of psychoanalysis.

The Student Society provides an introduction to all that LAISPS has to offer.  Each year of paid membership affords members four meetings with a mentor as well as invitations to attend several friendly, informal gatherings in which psychoanalytic thinking and writing are a central focus.

LAISPS recognizes the value of having a home base after graduation that reflects students’ enthusiasm, curiosity, and desire for intellectual dialogue. The Student Society is designed to help students and interns develop their unique voice as clinicians and contribute to the modern field of psychoanalytic theory and practice.

We welcome your interest and participation in this new and exciting program.
