2017 American Psychoanalytic Association (APsaA) National Meeting Call for Poster Submissions
The American Psychoanalytic Association (APsaA) is holding its 2017 National Meeting at the Waldorf Astoria New York in New York City, January 18-22, 2017. Founded in 1911 and the oldest psychoanalytic organization in the United States, APsaA is a professional organization for psychoanalysts that focuses on education, research, and membership development.
A poster session is held as part of the annual national meeting; 2017 will mark the 16th annual poster session and it is being co-chaired by Austen Riggs Center Medical Director/CEO Andrew J. Gerber, MD, PhD, and Riggs staff member Kim Hunter-Schaedle, PhD, whose research background is in developmental neuroscience. “I am delighted to be co-chairing the poster session with Dr. Hunter-Schaedle and I am looking forward to seeing what others in the field are studying and discovering about psychoanalysis,” says Gerber.
The title of the 2017 poster session, held on the afternoon of Friday, January 20th is Research Relevant to Theory and Practice in Psychoanalysis. The goal is to showcase the work of empirical psychoanalytic researchers, and to stimulate conversation with psychoanalytic practitioners and theorists.
Poster submissions should have relevance to psychoanalytic theory, technique, practice and effectiveness of psychoanalysis, or interdisciplinary scholarship addressing research questions in neighboring fields. As added incentive, early career investigators who are first authors on posters will be eligible to compete for a $500 Poster Award.
