The Colombian Psychoanalytic Society (Socolpsi) was formed as the Colombian Studies Group on May 6 1956, celebrating the birth centenary of Sigmund Freud, and was sponsored by the psychoanalytic societies of France and Chile. The founding group consisted of three training analysts and four students. In 1957 the International Psychoanalytical Association (IPA) recognised the Colombian Studies Group.

In 1961, the study group was recognized by the IPA as a Component Society, and in 1962 there was a conflict between two of the founders which ended with the departure of several members and students who later formed the Psychoanalytic Association of Colombia, which is currently recognised by the IPA as a Provisional Society.

The efforts of the analysts who remained in the Society were directed towards its consolidation and maintenance of being a psychoanalytic training institute. Despite these crises, the Society hosted the Latin American Congress of Psychoanalysis in 1968.

Since the 1970's, the Society grew more slowly but steadily, compared with some other Latin American societies, and it was internationally regarded as the Colombian traditional solid group.

Socolpsi received recognition as a Component Society on the appointment of Doctor Carlos Plata as Vice-President of the IPA in 1973.
