About Me.

Elisabetta Iberni, PhD
Clinical Psychologist and certified Psychotherapist

Individual Member of the International Association of Analytical Psychology (IAAP)

I worked as a clinical psychologist and psychotherapist for several years in both public and private institutes. I was an academic researcher (University of Rome ‘Sapienza’ and University of Leiden) on attachment theory and its application to studying the process of dynamically-oriented psychotherapies. Starting from 2009, I lived and worked in Kosovo as an international observer on minorities, women and vulnerable groups human rights.

During the years spent in the Balkans, I completed a research on the long-term psychosocial changes of families after the conflict (University of Essex), and successfully accomplished the training as analytical psychologist with the colleagues of the Developing Group in Belgrade.

I became a member of the International Association of Analytical Psychology in August 2016. These experiences gave me a special opportunity to observe the complex matrix of relations connecting the individual to society. Understanding the psychological origins of human rights violations, and thus stabilization, reconciliation, peace and tolerance were a great challenge for me.

Now I am delighted to work at The Argonaut, which is a private practice aiming to support cosmopolitan citizens scattered around the world.
