A Psychoanalytic Professional Learning Community

Welcome to The Suffolk Institute for Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis

The Suffolk Institute for Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis (SIPP) has been in operation since 1989 as a post graduate psychoanalytic training Institute. Beginning in 2018, we are also a Psychoanalytic Professional Learning Community offering annual membership to New York State licensed professionals who are looking for camaraderie, professional stimulation and a network of professionals in the wider mental health community of the Greater New York area.

Throughout the years we have remained true to our guiding principles, ideals which contribute to our unique psychoanalytic community. While offering workshops, colloquia, book discussions, movie discussions, round table conversations, we are first and foremost a professional community and organization dedicated to maintaining an internal environment that is experienced by its constituent members and the greater professional community as respectful, inclusive, and professionally fulfilling. In addition to social work, we now offer Continuing Education credits for psychologists. In the changing face of psychotherapy, we strive to provide an environment which encourages deep reflection along with extensive dialogue in all clinical and professional arena.

We rely on the multiple voices of SIPP’s members to shape and guide our community’s decisions.


Interested in joining? If you are looking for a professional learning community dedicated to fulfilling both the intellectual and collegial needs of its members, we encourage you to become a member of SIPP.


We aim to create an environment which actively supports intellectual dialogue via training programs. Secondly, we believe that integration between our Institute with leaders and thinkers in related fields supports our vision of vital and stimulating community education.


The Institute’s initiatives of conferences, colloquia, and workshops enrich our members and provide opportunities to connect with the wider mental health community.
