The formation in psychoanalysis at the IIP is a living and original space for the transmission of psychoanalysis. We promote a collective experience of theoretical formulation based on the debate between different paradigms


The formation in psychoanalysis at the IIP is a living and original space for the transmission of psychoanalysis, offered to those starting their path, those who have been in this field of practice for a longer time as well as those who have no intention to practice psychoanalysis stricto sensu, but who are interested in finding ways of structuring knowledge from psychoanalysis.

Our approach is based on the practice and teachings of psychoanalysis since Freud, specially in Lacan, where an updated, consistent, multidisciplinary and multi-lingual reading of the text is maintained. We promote a collective experience of theoretical formulation based on the debate between different paradigms as we also grant broad accessibility to groups historically excluded from the psychoanalytic field with a view to elaborate on the path towards a decolonial psychoanalysis.

International psychoanalytic
formation with teachers from 4 continents

In our formation we propose studies and readings conducted by 16 professors from different nationalities, origins and formation backgrounds. Our purpose encompasses a broad spectrum of action capable of providing a relevant, comprehensive, in-depth psychoanalytic formation as well as operating in research, the social field and publishing. We also accomplish theoretical intersections with other areas of knowledge: human, social and exact sciences and arts.



16 professors from
different nationalities.


Live classes and recorded classes with simultaneous translation into English, French, Portuguese and Libras (Brazilian Sign Language) throughout the whole formation.


2-year formation, starting September/2023, totaling 116 hours of classes + hours of group and individual tutoring each year. Classes take place on Fridays
and Saturdays.


Classes remain available through the student platform during the whole formation.


We consider the formation of the psychoanalyst a process of constant construction and refinement of each one’s manner of sustaining an ethical clinical practice in psychoanalysis. This development demands three axes of experience: personal analysis, theoretical formulation and supervision of clinical cases. The practice of this tripod allows us to claim that the formation of the psychoanalyst is not restricted to their bond to a specific institution. We comprehend that the formation of the psychoanalyst is organized in a variable balance, constantly renewed with what is learnt in personal analysis, text studies and clinical exchanges.


The International Institute of Psychoanalysis (IIP) is an active and diverse network whose scope reaches beyond geographical borders and psychoanalytic schools. We enjoy and are open to contact and partnership with professionals from other trajectories while we work independently of other official organizations. We encourage and build multidisciplinary connections among professionals and institutions over the world.

Here, In the IIP, the paradox and multiplicity is welcome to give direction to the courses, allied with rigor and impeccable organization. A transcultural, multilingual voyage that opens worlds and perspectives. It's for those who wish to wish, who want to know and want even more. Each class is a (poi)ethical encounter, to cultivate the becoming of a psychoanalyst.

Fabiana Machado, Brazil

I'm Mohamed EL BAGHDADI, living in Casablanca, Morocco, and a student of the first year of the formation in the International Institute of Psychoanalysis. I'm glad to leave my testimony on the psychoanalysis formation of the IIP. It's a magical moment that started 8 months ago in complete serenity, with a multicultural group filled with human treasures. A beautiful energy thanks to the interventions of psychoanalysts and the effective tools that connect many countries, with no loss despite the distance. All this allows me to leave each class with overflowing knowledge. This formation brought me and always brings me many things I haven't finished discovering. Make a good choice as I did, choose the International Institute of Psychoanalysis.

Mohamed EL BAGHDADI, Morocco

Hi! My name is Zaíra, I'm a psychologist joining the IIP formation. I got to know the IIP through a supervisor who is also a professor in the Institute, and I was amazed by the inclusion politics, the quality of the professors and the themes approached in the formation. I've been in other schools and institutes and I can say it's the place where I felt the most welcome and heard. I already feel more well prepared for clinical practice and I recommend it to people who, as me, are looking for a space with quality formation.

Zaíra Rocha, Brazil

A dear friend suggested me the IIP formation and for the last seven months I haven't lost a single episode and I appreciate the cohesion - and I'd like to say fraternity - of this community created between more than three continents (...)

Bernard Contaux, France

Hi! My name is Jamily, I graduated in psychology and fell in love with psychoanalysis during my formation. I was presented to the IIP by Hugo Valente, a professor in the Institute and my supervisor. I love taking part in the Institute and having access to the various themes proposed, to the qualified professors and colleagues from different nationalities and cultures.

Jamily Xaia Perez, Brazil

When I entered the IIP I knew that the formation would be highly professional and with solid ethical values, but I couldn’t imagine its pertinence, its richness and the joy that would cheer me up when listening to all the professors, within their singularity, their humility and their taste for psychoanalysis, communicating us their research and their passion, to sum: their desire. I learn at each of the courses, I also face difficulties (a formation that flies high), but in general I’m pleased to apprehend a decolonized psychoanalysis, to work, to inform myself, to learn and to unlearn, to relearn and to take the time to digest, while discussing with my formation colleagues. The cultural abundance that emerges is a real source of inspiration. The IIP is a passionate encounter, like meeting a work of art, an artist, a poet, with so many curiosities to discover, to be astonished and marveled. We won't exit the formation the same way we entered, that's for sure. It's a real joy to be able to embrace the opening that this "IIPesque" adventure brings us, and thereby apprehend ourselves differently.

Axelle Trinchero, France

Taking part in the IIP formation has introduced me to a new experience of psychoanalysis. Being among such diverse people and hearing voices that are also heterogeneous, talking about psychoanalysis from their unique trajectories leaves me comfortable to also find space to be diverse and to create my own path throughout psychoanalytic studies and practices. The classes and professors create an environment in which there's space for emptiness and a bit of anxiety that accompanies those who propose to venture into the psychoanalytic (not) knowing, encouraging us but also welcoming us.

Kelly Keity Silva, Brazil

The IIP presents a study space open to the rigorous reading of psychoanalytic text, in which the theoretical and practical contributions of professors, implied in this cause, bring about the crucial and present questions of the clinic. This trajectory interests me a lot, for the advancing of a a thought-provoking production. The formation in psychoanalysis, as one of the fundamental pillars of this praxis, among other activities at the Institute, is articulated by providing interaction with students. A place where classes function as a cause, recalling Freud's words when he refers to "a spark", which causes sparks to light up where we pass, without leaving us indifferent when we approach and take these events as a true experience. The IIP is also on social media. I invite readers to follow and check out this precious income.

Andrea Coelho, Brazil

Gabriel da Luz, Brazil


The IIP is aware of the discussions on accessibility and has been working with the implementation of actions to welcome subjects in their most diverse specificities since its foundation. We sustain permanent efforts to promote a transmission of psychoanalysis which takes into consideration specific manifestations of communication. All our events are translated into Libras (Brazilian sign language). We are also very attentive to the inclusion of people with any level of visual impairment, investing on research and provision of audio description of all our contents. 

Our scholarship program and our accessibility strategies are also based on acknowledgement of sexual orientation, gender identity, social and ethnical backgrounds as well as financial fragilities. We welcome subjective singularity and diverse forms of narrative.

Concepts and articulations

10 months

This space is thought to work on the theoretical bases that will be used by the other teachers and that according to them are important and necessary for a better understanding of their classes. It is intended to speak rigorously, in a clear and didactic way, of the basic concepts of psychoanalysis, having as a guideline the work of Freud and Lacan.

Freud, from his texts

10 months

Sigmund Freud is primarily a doctor and researcher specialized in brain anatomy and the nervous system. It is through articles that he will give to hear, from this starting point, the path he draws and which leads to the invention of psychoanalysis. This course offers an immersion in a part of this Freudian adventure. Professors will each seize an article by Freud and will visit it, question it, extract the guidelines, say how this text feeds the clinic, a research in the process of being done, but also say the limits, the errors that mark out, perhaps, the Freudian text

The opening of Lacan's twenty first seminars

10 months

For several decades Jacques Lacan will provide a teaching especially during his Seminar. He will say repeatedly: he does not seek to transmit a knowledge. His seminar is a space for a psychoanalyst to say, in the position of an analysand.

Lacan closes his text “Psychoanalysis and its teaching” with the following words: “A return to Freud, which provides the material for a teaching worthy of the name, can only be produced by the pathway by which the most hidden truth manifests itself in the revolutions of culture. This pathway is the only training that I can claim to transmit to those who follow me. It is called: a style.”

Teaching: insignis in Latin; what is marked with a sign.

What sign and what style is this Seminar about?

To explore these questions, we propose to study rigorously during this year, at each month the first sentence(s) of a seminar. We will start with the first and continue like this, chronologically, until the 10th (for the 1st year) and from the 11th to the 20th (for the 2nd year). This proposal will certainly be the opportunity to trace a possible path within this teaching.

Decolonizing psychoanalysis

9 months

Would it be to provide a place for voices that were silenced by the history of the psychoanalytic institutions? Or the fact of constructing a critical thinking related to certains postures and theories resulting from the Freudian discovery and its effects? No doubt… We believe this necessary movement can be made through a singular clinical, political and theoretical practice. In this course three psychoanalysts, from three different continents, will provide insights, from different questions, for a possible incarnation of this decolonization.

Course on suicidism

These classes are linked to the most recent work by Alexandre Baril on the issue of suicide and assisted suicide.

The first session focuses on the failure of suicide prevention services for LGBQ+/trans/non-binary communities and how what he calls suicidism (the oppression experienced by suicidal people through various forms of pathologization, stigma , discrimination, exclusion and incarceration) is combined with heterosexism (homophobia) and cisgenderism (transphobia).

The second session continues this exploration of suicide and assisted suicide. This session focuses on what Alexandre Baril calls a suicide-affirmative approach to assisted suicide, based on trans-affirmative approaches, in order to better support suicidal people in distress..

Minor clinic and the ethics of psychoanalysis

The practice of psychoanalysis requires an ethics on the part of the analyst. To orient oneself in a treatment is to strive not to lose sight of the desire of the subject; it is being able to identify what is most important for the subject and what sustains him; it is knowing how to be silent and knowing why we are intervening. Such ethics cannot be fixed once and for all. It is not to be confused with the precepts of any morality. It is never of the order of a benevolent confession. It is without content.

However, in recent years, on many occasions, psychoanalysts have taken a position in the name of their ethics in issues of society: homosexual marriages, filiations and medically assisted procreation, trans identities… too often, the practice of psychoanalysis has then transformed into a judge and an expert on moralities: psychoanalysis knew, the clinic confirmed and the analyst decided wether good or bad for society.

The course proposes to return to Freud’s political texts: “Totem and taboo”, “Civilization and Its Discontents”, “Beyond the pleasure principle”, “Why war?”, “Group psychology and analysis of the ego”… The objective of this re-reading is twofold: on the one hand, to revive and re-embrace psychoanalytic ethics afresh and, on the other hand, to strive to demonstrate, thanks to so-called “minority” criticisms (those of feminists, of gender and queer studies) to psychoanalysis, the possibility of working in a clinic which would be conjugated in a minor mode.

Construction of clinical case

8 months

The construction of clinical case is a practice that is at the very heart of the history of Freudian discovery. This course is therefore part of this long tradition inseparable from the ethics of psychoanalysis. In this course, each month, one of the professors of the IIP will present in a narrow way a clinical situation resulting from his own analytic practice. It will be for him/her to show and demonstrate the possible construction of the case and extract from it his/hers own invention, between the structure and the singularity. Ample space will be reserved for discussion and debate following this clinical presentation.

Course on suicidism

2 months

These classes are linked to the most recent work by Alexandre Baril on the issue of suicide and assisted suicide.

The first session focuses on the failure of suicide prevention services for LGBQ+/trans/non-binary communities and how what he calls suicidism (the oppression experienced by suicidal people through various forms of pathologization, stigma , discrimination, exclusion and incarceration) is combined with heterosexism (homophobia) and cisgenderism (transphobia).

The second session continues this exploration of suicide and assisted suicide. This session focuses on what Alexandre Baril calls a suicide-affirmative approach to assisted suicide, based on trans-affirmative approaches, in order to better support suicidal people in distress.

Time to listen

10 months

A two-hour session at the end of each month to collect questions and comments regarding the content of the courses and the formation in general. In this space the word will be listened to in the singularity of each one, as from the ethics of psychoanalysis. These monthly meetings are open to the contingency of requests from whoever wishes to do so.

Nous entendons, en trois rencontres, faire un dépistage clinique, théorique et littéraire de ces corps et des vicissitudes que subissent leurs constructions.

Cours de six heures divisé en trois mois.

Uma abordagem psicanalítica da máscara: para uma nova psicopatologia da vida cotidiana?

A situação viral em que o mundo mergulhou há um ano, agora dá a oportunidade de dar uma olhada no objeto que provavelmente melhor simboliza o período atual: a máscara. Em que e como esse objeto, que usamos na pele do rosto e que irrompeu em nosso cotidiano, pode questionar a psicanálise?
