The Research webpage is dedicated to providing a current reference list concerning research into psychoanalysis and psychoanalytic psychotherapy. The webpage is maintained by the Research Committee, under the chairmanship of Dr Ron Spielman.

The reference list is at this stage a generic one covering psychoanalytic treatment outcome research, psychoanalytic constructs and the psychoanalytic process.

Members of the research committee are linked to a network of Research Fellows of the International Psychoanalytic Association (IPA) and receive regular updates and reference material which it is hoped will be continuously integrated in the list.

If you wish to contribute references to the list please send them to

In addition to the reference list of research, the webpage now includes information about research projects and conferences concerning psychoanalytic research under the headings “Research News Updates” and “Events.”

Various research articles and references are now available to view under the 'Research' link located on the top of the website.
