Section VII: Psychoanalysis and Groups

This Section of Psychoanalysis and Groups provides a forum for studying the application of psychoanalytic thinking to the theory and practice of psychoanalytic group therapy, and for understanding phenomena endemic to institutional and societal groups.

Members of the Section are encouraged to present their ideas regarding the interrelationships between psychoanalysis and groups in the official programs of Division 39 and of the American Psychological Association. In addition, the Section sponsors its own annual scientific meeting on critical issues relating to psychoanalysis and groups.
