Divison 39 Fund
The Division 39 Fund has been established to recognize and promote the contributions of psychoanalysis to psychology as a science and profession. It will encourage and support programs in education, research, and service that will advance the profession and keep the psychological community and the public informed of developments in psychoanalytic scholarship, research, and practice.
Emphasis will be on increasing public awareness of the benefits of psychoanalytic principles and treatments, as well as on the applicability of psychoanalytic thought to clinical, organizational, and social problems. The Fund will target populations that are in need of support, such as early career professionals, students fromn diverse backgrounds, and therapists working with underserved populations. Activities may include scholarships, research, educational projects, and nonprofit community programs consistent with psychoanalytic principles.
