The Danish Psychoanalytical Society (DPAS) was established in 1957 and is part of The International Psychoanalytical Association (IPA). The Society promotes the interests of psychoanalysis in Denmark and Southern Sweden.
DPAS provides education for future psychoanalysts according to international standards (IPA). All members of the Society are licensed psychoanalysts and, aside from having an academic background, most members are experienced, clinical psychologists or psychiatrists. At the moment the Society has 60 members and 15 candidates in training.
The Danish Psychoanalytical Society is an active participant in the collaboration within the International Psychoanalytical Association and The European Psychoanalytical Federation (EPF). Together with several psychoanalytical associations in Europe, the Society in Denmark participates in international seminars, conferences, and congresses. We also arrange events and public talks for our members and interested parties in Denmark.
