The Academy for the Study of the Psychoanalytic Arts was founded in 1995 in response to the powerful social, political and economic forces that were defining psychoanalysis as a "health-care profession.”  Ever-increasing regulation and standardization in the health care industry pose serious threats to the privacy and autonomy necessary for independent practice. The Academy has undertaken the project of rethinking psychoanalysis from within a psychological framework of humanistic disciplines including philosophy, the arts and literature and presenting this view of psychoanalysis to the academic, professional and lay communities. The Academy works with other groups interested in the preservation of private and autonomous psychoanalytic practice and publishes a wide variety of papers on its website,; its members present papers and programs in local, national and international forums.

The American Journal of Psychoanalysis is an international psychoanalytic quarterly founded in 1941 by Karen Horney. The journal's purpose is to be an international forum for communicating a broad range of contemporary theoretical, clinical, professional and cultural concepts of psychoanalysis and for presenting related investigations in allied fields. It is a fully peer-reviewed journal, which welcomes psychoanalytic papers from all schools of thought that address the interests and concerns of scholars and practitioners of psychoanalysis and contribute meaningfully to the understanding of human experience. The journal publishes original papers, special issues devoted to a single topic, articles on the arts and psychoanalysis, book reviews, film reviews, reports on the activities of the Karen Horney Psychoanalytic Center, and comments.

The volumes of the AJP that followed the first issue in 1941 tracked the many subsequent changes in psychoanalysis, with the contributors committed to offering excellent work. The journal first flourished under the editorship of Horney and after her was nurtured and guided by the editorships of Harold Kelman, Ralph Slater, Helen DeRosis, Mario Rendon and Douglas Ingram. Since 2000, with the incredible support of a dedicated Editorial Board, Giselle Galdi worked to build upon the proud legacy of AJP and continued the struggle against the pull of isolation, or an exclusive adherence to any psychoanalytic thought. In that spirit, in 2001, with Volume 61, the scope of the AJP was changed to an international psychoanalytic journal, and has consistently published works of authors of all persuasion, and from all over the world, read and refereed by an international editorial board. Giselle Galdi is privileged to be the editor at the journal’s 75th Anniversary, thankful for the opportunity to witness its accomplishments and delighted by AJP’s ability to stay vital for 75 precious years.

Institute for Expressive Analysis (IEA)

Contact: Cenk Cokuslu - Executive Director
303 Fifth Avenue, Suite 1103
New York, NY 10016
Phone: 646-494-4324

The Institute for Expressive Analysis (IEA) is a New York State License qualifying program that offers training in psychoanalysis. IEA places a particular emphasis on the integration of scientific-theory based aspects of psychotherapy and psychoanalysis with the creative process of doing sound clinical work. The curriculum provides a diversity of theoretical approaches including Object Relations, Self-Psychology, Relational Psychoanalysis, Jungian, and Contemporary Freudian theory. Training focuses on both verbal and nonverbal aspects of treatment and is applicable for both private practice and institutional settings.

Our program promotes the development of therapeutic artistry by providing a solid clinical base along with exposure to creative currents in contemporary psychoanalysis. We offer a personal, intimate training atmosphere based on the belief that every analyst must find her/his own therapeutic metaphor, style, and ways of integrating the many dimensions of training. Central to this integration is developing a deep understanding of one's own subjectivity and patient-analyst co-created dynamics related to the transference-countertransference; the heart of psychoanalytic treatment.
