The Dean

Karen Horney, M.D.

This is the first year in which the American Institute for Psychoanalysis has been administered according to the provisions of the new constitution. As Dean of the Institute and Chairman of the Faculty Council it is my duty and privilege to present the following report on the state of the Institute and the main activities of the Faculty Council during the past year.

The number of candidates in training has increased from 51 in 1948-'49 to 63 in 1949-'50; the teaching staff has increased from 20 to 24 in the same period; the training analyst staff from 7 to 10. In respect to admission of new candidates we have brought into clearer focus the desirability of a more careful study of the personality qualifications of applicants. In the case of candidates who are well advanced in their training, we are giving more careful consideration to their work in the academic courses and their progress in analysis. This enables us to offer qualified candidates opportunities to participate in the teaching program.

In the past year we have extended this policy to include the appointment of senior candidates to associate and assistant lectureships in some of the advanced technical courses under the supervision of full lecturers. This policy has the long-range intention of building up the teaching staff and of relieving the senior pioneer members of some of their heavier responsibilities. It permits the repetition of certain required courses at shorter intervals, thus expediting the whole course in training.
