American Psycho-Analytic Association
The Sixteenth Annual Meeting of the American Psycho-Analytic Association was held in Minneapolis, Minnesota, on June 8, 1928. Minneapolis had been chosen as the place for the meeting in order to afford an opportunity for the Psycho-Analytic Association to hold a joint session with the American Psychiatric Association. Because of the great distance of this city from the Atlantic seaboard, where a majority of the members of the Psycho-Analytic Association reside, the number of members present was so small that no business session could be held.
At the joint session with the American Psychiatric Association, Dr. Adolph Meyer, the President of the latter, presided in the absence of Dr. William A. White, President of the Psycho-Analytic, who was prevented from attending by illness. Two papers were read: The Psycho-Analysis of Siblings, by Dr. C. P. Oberndorf, and The Dynamics of Schizophrenic Reactions Related to Pregnancy and Childbirth, by Dr. Gregory Zilboorg.
At the independent session of the Psycho-Analytic Association, Dr. H. S. Sullivan presided. Here two papers were presented: The Psycho-Analytic Observations in the Mental Hygiene Problems of College Students, by Dr. Karl Menninger, and the Sense of Guilt in Functional Epilepsy, by Dr. J. H. Cassity.
While the attendance at the joint session was large, the audience was composed principally of psychiatrists with a weak interest in psycho-analysis. At the independent session, at which about forty attended, certainly not one-half of those present were actively interested in the subject. The discussion on the papers at both sessions was therefore brief.
C. P. Oberndorf, Secretary.
