Letter of Reference

To the Applicant:
Please ask two experienced psychoanalysts who know your work to complete these letters of reference. These may be colleagues, supervisors, or consultants and may be from any IPA or APsaA institute. However, each individual submitting a letter of reference on your behalf must have five years of postgraduate psychoanalytic experience, be certified in psychoanalysis or be eligible for board certification. You may meet with one or both colleagues to discuss your work and the letters of reference.

To the Applicant’s Colleague, Supervisor or Consultant:
A colleague has requested that you provide a letter of reference in support of his or her application for Board Certification in Psychoanalysis. Letters of reference include a short questionnaire of 27 items as well as space for additional comments about the applicant and his or her work. When you have completed the letter of reference, please send or email the completed form to the CIPS Board of Examiners Administrator at:
