Association for the Advancement of Psychoanalysis

Bernard S. Robbins, M.D.

A brief survey of the contents of this Journal will attest to the phenomenal growth of the Association during the two years of its existence. The breadth of its activities, encompassing as they do every phase of psychoanalysis as a medical science and as a potent force in fostering good human relations, reaffirms the soundness of the principles upon which the organization was established, and the vigor and zealousness with which they have been pursued. This has been done in the face of difficulties which may well have discouraged any similar small group whose active ranks have been further depleted by the demands of the Armed Services. The War has been a challenge to the Association; an opportunity to carry out with even greater activity the democratic aims upon which it was founded and not a rationalization for withdrawal from free scientific enquiry and academic freedom.

The scientific contributions of the membership have been substantial and original. The large and sustained attendance at the scientific sessions held at the Academy of Medicine is testimony of the value of the presentations, which, although essentially clinical in character, included a number with significant relationship to other sciences: anthropology, sociology, etc. These have been and will be published in various psychiatric and other medical journals. The educational facilities offered under the auspices of the American Institute for Psychoanalysis, subsidiary of the Association, have provided opportunities for innumerable people from all ranks of life, engaged in many different activities, to enlarge their understanding of the significance of human relations, and to act accordingly. The training school proper, for selected psychiatrists desiring special training in psychoanalysis, has proved a profound success, and the quantity and quality of the medical psychiatrists who have enrolled with the Institute has exceeded our fondest expectations. Our relationship to the community has been fortified through the efforts of the Auxiliary Council of the Association, a lay group whose function and activities are described in detail elsewhere in this Journal.
