Reports of Proceedings of Societies



The thirty-second meeting of the American Psycho-Analytic Association was held at the Waldorf-Astoria, New York City, on May 30, 1934. The President, Dr. A. A. Brill, presided at all sessions. The Amercan Psycho-Analytic Association has met co-jointly with the American Psychiatric Association heretofore at its annual meeting. This year the Association met with the new Section of the American Psychiatric Association on Psycho-Analysis.

At this meeting a Symposium on the Relation of Psycho-Analysis to Psychiatry was given. 'Introductory Comments on the Relation of Psycho-Analysis to Psychiatry' were made by Dr. A. A. Brill; Dr. Leland E. Hinsie presented 'The Relationship of Psycho-Analysis to Psychiatry'; this was continued by Dr. Ross McClure Chapman with a paper on 'Psycho-Analysis in Psychiatric Hospitals'; the Symposium was concluded by Dr. Harry Stack Sullivan's exposition on 'Psychiatric Training a Prerequisite to Psycho-Analytic Practice.' The Private Session of the American Psycho-Analytic Association was convened on the afternoon of the same day. Papers entitled 'Masculine and Feminine in the Three Psychic Systems', by Fritz Wittels, M.D., 'A Psycho-Analytic Observation on Essential Hypertension', by Lewis B. Hill, M.D., and 'Fairy Tales and Neurosis', by Sandor Lorand, M.D., were presented.

On the evening of May 31, Dr. Lewin acted as Moderator of a Round Table, the subject for which was 'Clinical Forms of Neurosis and Character Disorder as encountered in Present-Day Practice.'

These papers evoked extensive discussion. There was an unusually large attendance at the annual meeting.

The routine business, including election of officers, was postponed.
