1950-1951: The Association for the Advancement of Psychoanalysis
Muriel Ivimey, M.D.
During the year 1950-1951, the Association continued to promote and integrate its established program. Our growth was augmented through closer cooperation with the Institute and other professional groups.
The character of the Scientific Meetings was improved through broader participation and carefully considered discussions. A plan for having two prepared discussants for the papers at the Academy Meetings was instituted. Such meetings will be a part of the regular program in future.
The Interval Meetings have continued to encourage original contributions. The material presented indicates movement in two important directions: a better understanding of group participation in education and therapy, and a recognition and mobilization of constructive forces in analytic therapy. As an expression of this latter direction, a meeting was devoted to the increasing possibilities for effective analytic therapy of the psychosis.
Several members attended the American Psychiatric Association convention at Cincinnati. Papers were read by Dr. Alexander Martin, chairman of the A.P.A. Committee on Leisure Time Activity, and Dr. Bella Van Bark. Doctors Horney, Harold Kelman, Martin and Weiss participated with Doctors Ewen D. Cameron and Bernard Glueck in a Round Table Discussion on “Moral Values in Therapy.” Dr. S. Spofford Ackerly was the moderator. A Scientific Exhibit, sponsored by the Association in cooperation with the Institute and A.C.A. A.P., served to inform A.P.A. members of our function and our educational program for the profession and the community.
The Foreign Relations Committee has carried on an increasing exchange of literature with foreign authors and societies. Articles by Dr. Horney and Dr. Weiss have been translated into French and published in Psyche.
The research project in Group Analysis, being carried out in cooperation with the Candidates Association, has expanded. There are now ten groups conducted by seven analysts.
The American Journal of Psychoanalysis has enlarged its circulation and has been included in the libraries of a number of educational institutions.
The Bookshop continues to be a source of income to the Association and a convenience to the members.
The members of the Institute, Candidates Association and friends joined us in celebrating our tenth anniversary at a dinner at the St. Moritz on June 2, 1951.
