Membership in ISPSO is open to all who are interested in our purpose of “exploring how psychoanalytic thinking and practices can further our study of organizations and the wider social influences that impact them.”

This includes the study of unconscious and conscious dynamics at play in organizations. These may include culture, leadership, followership, authority, power relations, roles, teams, networks, stakeholder relations, creativity, innovation, emotions, identity, structures, and organizational change.

We also study how wider psycho-social conditions are impacted by various forces, including, technology, globalization, and local conditions, and how changing societal dynamics such as gender and identity impact organizational dynamics.

Our international membership consists of consultants, academics, clinicians, coaches, managers, leaders, students and others who apply psychoanalysis to their work. ISPSO has a diverse mixture of members with a rich exchange of ideas, best-practices, theories, knowledge, and experiences.
