Further Principles in the Establishment of Training Facilities

Edward Bibring, M.D.

[Ed. Note: In Volume 6, Number 1, March, 1950, of the Bulletin, there appeared an article by Dr. Bibring representing a report of his Committee on Institutes, entitled “Considerations in the Establishment of Training Facilities.” The events of the past year have led Dr. Bibring's Committee to elaborate further on this important subject.]

“At the last meeting of the Board on Professional Standards in December, 1949 we deferred the decision on two applications. We proceeded in this way partly because the Committee on Institutes felt the need to have the principle involved in these matters clarified and established before any concrete proposals could be made. This was to some degree accomplished at the meeting in December, 1949. Since then we have received two more applications from newly formed institutes based on circumstances which are to some extent different from the two institutes discussed last time. We think, therefore, that a discussion of the principles involved in the new applications is justified.

1)   There is the application of the Philadelphia Society and Institute which has already been discussed at the last meeting of the Executive Council and partly at the meeting of this Board. Differences in the basic philosophy of teaching and training appear to have reached an intensity which made any further cooperation undesirable if not impossible. Since then we have received another application from the Los Angeles Psychoanalytic Institute, for similar reasons. There, too, tension has arisen from the fact that the members differed in the basic approach to teaching and training, thus dividing the membership of the institute into two opposing groups. Since a compromise did not seem to be possible and since such a compromise may not be desirable at least under certain circumstances, the members of both institutes, Philadelphia and Los Angeles, decided in an amicable way that it might be better for the furthering of their respective goals to separate completely and organize two independent institutes instead of one.

“This situation creates a serious problem for this Board and this Committee.
