The American Psycho-Analytical Association—(A Federation of the American Psycho-Analytical Societies)

Anna Freud

The Association has completed its initial work of reorganization. Under the leadership of the President, Dr. A. A. Brill, effort is now being directed toward the development of the three Societies federated in the Association and the organization of a fourth group. The American Association will continue to have an annual Spring Meeting and a Mid-Year Meeting of the Societies federated in its membership.

The thirteenth meeting of The American Psycho-Analytical Association (a Federation of the American Psycho-Analytical Societies) was held on May 31, 1933, at the Hotel Statler, Boston, Massachusetts. The morning programme was given in joint assembly with the American Psychiatric Association. The Vice-President, Dr. William A. White, presided whilst the President, Dr. A. A. Brill, read his paper entitled, 'Homoerotic Mechanisms in Paranoia'; Dr. Isador H. Coriat then presented 'An Analytic Theory of Hallucinations'; Dr. Thomas M. French, 'Relations Between the Unconscious and the Reality Principle'; Dr. C. P. Oberndorf, 'Erotization in Thinking'; and Dr. Sándor Radó, 'Unconscious Mechanisms in Neurotic Depressions'. At the afternoon session, Dr. Lucile Dooley presented, 'A Note on Humor'; Dr. David M. Levy, 'Experiments in Psycho-Dynamics—a Study in Sibling Rivalry'; Dr. Karl Menninger, 'Polysurgery—Compulsive Submission to Surgical Operations'; Dr. William V. Silverberg, 'The Psychological Significance of " Du " and " Sie "'; and Dr. Ives Hendrick, 'Excessive Dreams and Schizophrenia'. Dr. Radó delivered an address in memory of Dr. Sándor Ferenczi.

At the Executive Session of the annual meeting Dr. William A. White was re-elected Vice-President; and Dr. Ernest E. Hadley Secretary-Treasurer of the Association. An official communication from Dr. Silverberg, Secretary of the Washington-Baltimore Psycho-Analytical Society, confirming the re-election of Ernest E. Hadley for the three-year term on the Executive Council was received by the President.

The newly created Section on Psycho-Analysis approved by the Council of the American Psychiatric Association was then discussed.
