The IARPP Muriel Dimen Fellowship Program is a 12-month program which offers a unique and tailored mentoring experience for applicants who wish to integrate Relational Psychoanalytic thinking into their work. The program is open to both non-analytic clinicians (psychologists, social workers, psychiatrists, other mental health clinicians) and non-clinical professionals working in other fields (academic, artistic, political, literary etc).
Successful applicants will be assigned a Relational Psychoanalyst as mentor, who will work with the candidate to structure a program of study relevant to their particular interest or project. The Fellowship includes financial support for fellows to attend the annual IARPP Conference at the end of the Fellowship year to present their work.
Applications for the 2018-2019 year are now open.

The IARPP Muriel Dimen Fellowship is an initiative to provide knowledge of relational psychoanalysis to outstanding non-analysts. In particular, the Fellowship seeks to reach early-career psychologists, social workers, psychiatrists, and academics — the future educators and leaders in their fields. However, it is also open to artists, journalists, and other intellectuals who find their work leading them toward psychoanalysis.
The Fellowship is awarded in conjunction with the IARPP conference. During the Fellowship Year, the Fellow must be in residence in the country in which the conference will be held, and will participate in the conference in a way determined by Fellowship Committee in consultation with the mentor/senior analyst with whom the Fellow has been paired up.
Fellowship winners will be awarded travel, lodging and registration fees, access to a mentor or a senior analyst with whom to discuss their research during the Fellowship Year, and invitations to participate in scientific programs and support from local institutes. Applicants should have a curiosity about mind in its relational and social contexts, and how relational psychoanalytic ideas are pertinent to their discipline and field of interest.
In Memoriam: This program was conceived of by the late Muriel Dimen. It is offered in the spirit of innovative, daring and inclusive scholarship that she was known for.
