The Psychoanalytic Study Group of Recife (GEPR) was officially recognised by the IPA as a Component Organisation in July 1988.
The GEPR has a long history, opening in April 1975 with the creation of the Psychoanalytic Center of Recife, created by the Brazilian Association of Psychoanalysis, under the responsibility of the Brazilian Psychoanalytic Society of Rio de Janeiro and the Psychoanalytic Society of Rio de Janeiro, which together constituted a educational sub-committee to organize the formation of a group of candidates in Recife.
The purpose of GEPR was to start the study of psychoanalysis in northeastern Brazil. Recife was chosen because of its geopolitical position and the fact of having two analysts living and working there at the time of formation.
