IPSS Distance Learning Program

IPSS offers a 1-year psychotherapy distance learning program, conducted live online via Zoom, for groups of clinicians located outside New York City. The sequence of 24 classes combines theory–with a focus on contemporary self psychology, infant research and intersubjective systems theory–with clinical case material. We coordinate with you to design the class schedule and curriculum details considering your needs. IPSS has been providing distance learning programs since 2012, having completed programs with communities based in South Africa, Australia, Japan, and in the U.S.A.
