IPA Podcasts

The IPA hosts two podcasts - Talks On Psychoanalysis and Off the Couch.

Talks On Psychoanalysis is dedicated to theoretical debates, clinical subjects and their implications in daily life. Talks On Psychoanalysis is produced by the Website Editorial Board, created and edited by Gaetano Pellegrini, and available on all the main podcast platforms. For questions and proposals please send an email to: ipatalks@ipa.world

On Off the Couch we meet psychoanalysts who work in dialysis units, prenatal clinics, corporate board rooms, community centers, humanitarian organizations, and with vineyard workers just to name a few. We hope these conversations expand our awareness of how broadly psychoanalytic thinking extends into our communities. Off the Couch is produced and hosted by Harvey Schwartz MD, Chair of the IPA in Health Committee, and Steven S. Rolfe MD.
