IARPP Announcements

IARPP Member’s Listserv Guidelines

The purpose of the IARPP Members’ Listserv is for IARPP members to communicate with one another on issues of professional concern. As an international organization we encourage all members to post announcements of international relevance.

Therefore we welcome:

1) Book releases/book announcements of IARPP members
2) Presentations by IARPP members in programs within but particularly outside their country of residence
3) Academic and scientific articles of interest to the international membership
4) Call for papers for international or local conferences
5) Educational events for an international or local audience
6) Conference announcements for an international or local audience
7) Referral requests – using the following format:

Subject header: include “Seeking Referral” (or something to that effect) and Referral Location
Referral Request must include:

-Brief description
– Sentence which states “Please send replies directly to me at… email@address” (or something to that effect)
– Name of person making the request

Please note: Responses to referral requests should be sent directly to the person making the request. Responses sent to the listserv will be returned to sender.

We will not post announcements:

– That are not of professional concern
– Concerning private practice topics such as office space or study groups
– Announcements of any events where dates conflict with the IARPP conference

And finally, to maintain an open avenue of communication on the IARPP listserv yet not overstuff the list, institutions are limited to posting two events per month. Each event may be listed twice.

As a general guideline, we request that members limit their total number of all posts to 3 per month.


Our listserv facilitators retain discretionary authority to limit use of the listserv if these guidelines are not followed.

Thank you in advance for your contributions!

Upcoming Colloquium

Theraputic Passion in the Countertransference
Based on the writing of Irwin Hoffman.
Monday May 6th – Sunday May 19th
Moderators: Galit Atlas and Steven Kuchuck

Panel: Mitchell Becker, Sandra Buechler, J.P. Cheuvront, Steve Cooper, Deborah Coulthard, Ann D’Ercole, Susan Klebanoff, Charles Levine, Spyros Orfanos, Stuart Pizer, Carmine Schettini, Gavin Stansfield, and Paul Wachtel.

The article and our colloquium will explore the uses of passion and influence in psychoanalytic treatment. Hoffman contends that the analyst must take on the responsibility to combat destructive introjects by becoming an inspiring, affirmative presence in the patient’s life. He examines the taboo against this use of self, and offers in depth clinical examples that we expect will inspire and provide opportunities for stimulating discussion and debate. As always, we have invited an international panel of expert theoreticians and clinicians to join us in what promises to be a lively and informative two weeks.

For those of you who are new to IARPP, the Online Colloquium series is available to all members–no registration is required. Several weeks before our start date, you will receive an email with instructions for how to access the article and how to participate in the colloquium. After the author’s and panelists’ opening remarks, members can choose whether or not they’d like to join the developing dialogue or simply follow along. For those who prefer not to read the posts in real time, they will be archived and accessible at a later date.

We are very excited to be welcoming Irwin and our panel in May, and look forward to welcoming all of you as well.
