About Us

Home > About Us > Mission


SIPP’s primary mission is to create an environment which actively supports intellectual dialogue through heartfelt, stimulating conversations that provide opportunities for active debate. Our open dialogue will facilitate one’s understanding and application of both clinical and theoretical material. Through active debate mingled with extensive interpersonal engagement, we hope to foster an Institute that aims to build bridges with mental health professionals within our analytic community as well as beyond. We feel that greater participation from SIPP members and newcomers alike, can only strengthen our collective experiences.

We believe that integration between our Institute with leaders and thinkers within the field — and in related fields — supports our vision of vital and stimulating community education. We are committed to extending ourselves beyond our immediate SIPP membership to encompass opportunity from community dialogue and coordinated activities. We don’t see SIPP as isolated from our surrounding environment, but rather, we hope to nurture psychological thought through personal and communal initiatives.
