A Forum for Scholarly and Clinical Exchange

Founded in 1993 in order to build a local gathering place for a community whose members shared interest is psychoanalysis, the Rhode Island Association for Psychoanalytic Psychologies (RIAPP) has provided a forum for scholarly and clinical exchange for nearly two decades. To that end, our primary focus has been psychoanalytic continuing education for local mental health professionals through our yearly lecture series and spring and fall conferences. Our programming is based on the recognition of the diversity present in contemporary psychoanalysis.  RIAPP’s philosophy encourages a comparative orientation that affords an integrative and pluralistic approach.
