  • 40th Annual Spring Meeting Cancellation
    With disappointment and sadness, the SPPP Executive Committee has made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Spring Meeting Reckoning/Foresight due to growing concerns about COVID-19. We are mindful of the potential monetary ramifications involved with this change. We are actively working to confirm the dates for 2021 in New York; should these dates not work for registrants, please contact Heather Kennedy for a refund.

  • Usha Tummala-Narra, PhD, a Div. 39 member, recently received honorable mention for the Prose ("Professional and Scholarly Excellence") Award in Psychology for her book, Psychoanalytic Theory and Cultural Competence (published by APA Books). This honor was awarded by the Professional and Scholarly Publishing  division of the American Association for Publishing. The Prose Awards are given annually in forty-five categories of scholarly publishing. It is a significant recognition of Usha's important contribution in integrating psychoanalytic thought with contemporary understanding of cultural competence. Usha previously received the Johanna Krout Tabin Book Prize for the book proposal, which allowed her to complete this groundbreaking work. Congratulations to Dr. Tummala-Narra.

  • The Future of Psychoanalysis
    Marilyn Charles, president of Div. 39, talks about her vision for the future. She contends that the psychoanalytic ideas and techniques have a great deal to offer, not just in terms of clinical training, but also as a useful lens to inform our ideas about parenting, education, public health, as well as our social systems and organizational structures.
