The American Institute for Psychoanalysis

Muriel Ivimey, M.D.

The American Institute for Psychoanalysis has completed the second year of its existence. Plans have been successfully put in operation with sincere efforts to hew to the line of its original purposes and aims, as formulated in last year's Journal.

It is felt that the position of the Institute has definitely consolidated. Lectures to undergraduate medical students and post-graduate courses for physicians, given under the auspices of the Department of Psychiatry of the New York Medical College, are making for the goal of extending psychoanalytic knowledge in the profession at large. Experience in the past year in offering courses under the facilities of the New School for Social Research has undoubtedly broadened the perspective of both the psychoanalyst and the student in allied fields, with whom an enriching exchange of ideas has developed.

The Faculty of the Institute is especially gratified with the high caliber of qualified psychiatrists now enrolled in the course of post-graduate training. Open discussion, in this student body, of matters pertaining to the curriculum, and response to courses, has been found by the Faculty to be most valuable in consideration of teaching problems. By the same token it is hoped that periodic critique of the progress of each student will prove profitable and will stimulate individual growth in the art and science of psychoanalysis. The assignment of two or more instructors to technical seminars, together with active participation in discussion by all students, sets free ideas and makes for mutual understanding and a more comprehensive exploration of the problems of neurosis.
