Membership requirements

To become a member of the GEI, you must be authorized to practice psychotherapy (clinical psychologist or holder of a psychotherapist's permit issued by the Ordre des psychologues du Québec), and be interested in integrating an intersubjective perspective in your psychotherapy practice.

Are also admissible, graduate students in a full time university program leading to the practice of psychotherapy, or applicants in the process of completing the requirements to obtain a psychotherapy permit.

The annual membership fee is $30. The membership year corresponds to the civil year and your membership therefore extends your member privileges from January 1st to December 31st, regardless of the date of application or renewal.

Please note: In order to register at member's fee to an activity held in 2021, it is necessary to have a completed or renewed 2021 membership.

  • Lower fees for all the activities of the membership year calendar.
  • Being listed in our members' roster (optional), available to members only and which can be used as a professional referral list.

  • Access to the Members' section of our web-site, which includes our forums and many of the published papers by our guest speakers used in preparatory discussions for our Annual Conferences, etc.
  • Finally, the pride and support that comes from being affiliated to a professional peer group.
