PEP-Web Tip of the Day

When you hover your mouse over a paragraph of the Standard Edition (SE) long enough, the corresponding text from Gesammelte Werke slides from the bottom of the PEP-Web window, and vice versa.

If the slide up window bothers you, you can turn it off by checking the box “Turn off Translations” in the slide-up. But if you’ve turned it off, how do you turn it back on? The option to turn off the translations only is effective for the current session (it uses a stored cookie in your browser). So the easiest way to turn it back on again is to close your browser (all open windows), and reopen it.

For the complete list of tips, see PEP-Web Tips on the PEP-Web support page.

The Association for the Advancement of Psychoanalysis

Elizabeth Kilpatrick

In April 1951 the Association could look back on ten years of progress. We could be satisfied with our goals and see increasing possibilities for their fulfillment.

During the past year we have reviewed our activities and begun changes consistent with the organization's growth and future needs. The Association will continue to cooperate with the American Institute, Candidates Association and ACAAP on projects for the advancement of psychoanalysis. We have decided to give up our plan for a psychoanalytic clinic. Instead, we will support the Karen Horney Foundation in a similar venture.

The group-analysis project has been in operation sufficiently long to prove the value of the Horney theory in psychoanalysis with groups as well as in individual analysis. Seven analysts are treating 102 patients. They meet bimonthly for discussion and have presented the results of their thinking at various meetings of the whole group.

The bookshop continues to be a convenience to members and a source of income to the Association.

As usual, most of our efforts have been concentrated on the scientific program. The ultimate objective is to improve therapy through greater understanding of the motivations of the healthy human being and how these are affected by neurosis. We consistently find ourselves, without intention, concentrating on specific problems over a period. The special emphasis during the past year has been on obtaining clearer definition of the constructiveness in man and the consequences of alienation from the real self.
