Section IV: Local Chapters

The Division 39 Bylaws permit the establishment of local chapters in various areas around the country. Section IV is that Section of the Division which enables local chapters to come together in a forum to discuss local chapter development, share programs and plans; sponsor programs for the Division's Annual Meeting and APA Annual Convention, assist the development of new local chapters, and foster the development of educational programs and psychoanalytic training programs around the country. Currently there are twenty-seven local chapters, with two chapters in formation.

Although local chapters are formed by Division 39 members and are part of Division 39, psychoanalytic clinicians from other disciplines and other psychologist who are not members of the Division may join a local chapter depending upon the bylaws of the local chapter.
