Membership in ISPSO is open to all who are interested in applying psychoanalytic theory and practice to the field of organizational dynamics.

This includes the study of the unconscious and conscious forces at play in organizational culture, leadership and followership, authority and power relations, team and network dynamics, the shadow side of organisational life, creativity and innovation, emotional and affective dynamics, identity issues, organisational structures, and changing workplace practices.

We also study how wider psycho-social conditions i.e. new technologies, globalising forces, local conditions, and changing social dynamics such as gender role and identity, impact on organizational dynamics and how organizational dynamics impact on wider society.

Our international membership consists of consultants, academics, clinicians, coaches, managers, leaders, students and others who are active in applying a psychoanalytic frame-works to inform their work.

This diverse mixture of members enables a very rich exchange of ideas, best-practice, theory, knowledge, experience and consultation, managerial and coaching methods that apply psychoanalytic thinking to the workplace.
