In the early 1990s, the Association for Psychoanalysis and Psychotherapy in Ireland (APPI) formed as a learned society. It drew together graduates of the School of Psychotherapy, St. Vincent's University Hospital, and others, who had trained abroad. What they had in common was a commitment to the work of Jacques Lacan. The group worked to advance Freudian and Lacanian psychoanalysis in Ireland through practice, seminars, reading groups and congresses.
