Candidate's Group

Bella S. Van Bark, M.D.

During the past year the increase in size of this group from 19 to 40 members brought the principal focus of attention to becoming acquainted with the diverse backgrounds, special fields of experience and interest represented by the present candidates. New members with recent experience in military psychiatry, in private and state hospitals, in shock therapy research and in private practice, stimulated new lines for research and investigation, and projects for testing out newer theories in various aspects of psychiatry and psychoanalysis.

The activities of this group included regular monthly discussion meetings devoted to the clinical and theoretic aspects of schizophrenia, recent contributions to psychotherapy with children, and examination of psychosomatic problems from the standpoint of newer contributions to the understanding of neurosis.

All members took part in the general discussion at interval meetings. Two presented papers at the regular meetings of the Association held at the Academy of Medicine, and two were discussants of papers presented by members of the Association.

Several members assisted in the teaching of courses given at the American Institute for Psychoanalysis and at The New School for Social Research. Several gave lectures to the public under the auspices of the ACAAP, and at Hunter College, City College, Queens College, the Y.W.C.A. of New York, and the Brooklyn Academy of Music.

Members participated with ACAAP on the library and liaison committees and with the Association as editorial assistants and contributors to the journal.
