Swedish PsychoanalyticAL Association

At a statutory meeting on May 3, 2010, the two psychoanalytic associations in Sweden, the Swedish Psychoanalytical Association and the Swedish Psychoanalytical Society, merged and formed a new, joint association. The new association's name is the Swedish Psychoanalytical Association (Swedish Psychoanalytical Association) It is - as the two previous associations were - affiliated to the 1910 founded International Psychoanalytical Association (IPA) and to the European Psychoanalytical Federation (EPF).

The former Swedish Psychoanalytical Association was founded in 1934 and the Swedish Psychoanalytic Society (whose name until 1999 was the Swedish Association for Holistic Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis) was founded in 1968. The two associations have for many years had an ever deeper collaboration both scientifically and practically and the merger is a natural as a result of this.

The new Swedish Psychoanalytical Association consists of 211 psychoanalysts and 25 candidates.
