The Association for the Advancement of Psychoanalysis

Alexander Reid Martin, M.D.

To appreciate how the Association seeks to fulfill its purpose of advancing psychoanalysis, this report should be read in conjunction with the reports of the American Institute for Psychoanalysis, the Candidates Association, and the Auxiliary Council of the Association.

Our program of lectures at the New York Academy of Medicine contained contributions representing our work toward that end. Expanding interest in our presentations resulted in overflow audiences, which necessitated a move toward limiting the attendance. Mindful of our responsibility to our colleagues in the field of medicine, particularly psychiatric medicine, we limited attendance to the medical profession. Our colleagues in the social sciences and allied fields continued to attend by invitation. The exclusion of the lay public, except for members of the Auxiliary Council, was counterbalanced by a more extensive program of lectures to the general public and to various educational, parent-teacher, religious and social organizations.

At the Detroit meeting of the American Psychiatric Association, the members of the Association organized and participated in a Round Table Discussion on “Psychoanalysis and Character Development of Children.” This attracted a large and interested audience. This increased participation in the program of the parent body, the American Psychiatric Association, has coincided with a movement toward closer integration with our psychoanalytic colleagues abroad. A Foreign Relations Committtee has been formed which will serve as a further means of cross-fertilization of ideas and psychoanalytic concepts.
