You can specify Rank as the sort order when searching (it’s the default) which will put the articles which best matched your search on the top, and the complete results in descending relevance to your search. This feature is useful for finding the most important articles on a specific topic.
You can also change the sort order of results by selecting rank at the top of the search results pane after you perform a search. Note that rank order after a search only ranks up to 1000 maximum results that were returned; specifying rank in the search dialog ranks all possibilities before choosing the final 1000 (or less) to return.

Education Committee Report
Tara Rech, Ph.D.
The Education Committee of 2002, comprised of many new members, hit the ground running at the beginning of the year with an exciting array of courses. Spring courses included a popular course on psychoanalytic couples therapy taught by Shelley Nathans, Ph.D., which generated a waiting list for future courses on the topic. We were also pleased to host a fascinating weekend of psychoanalytic art tours of the Palace of the Legion of Honor with Rico Franses, Ph.D., an art historian with extensive knowledge of Lacanian theory. This was an unusual course offering for our committee, and the response from the community was very positive. We also presented a course taught by Brian Feldman, Ph.D., on the experience of skin as a container, and a course on the mind object, taught by Deborah Melman, Ph.D., which also generated a waiting list. We co-sponsored a well-attended event with the Children's Psychotherapy Project titled “The UnconsciousTransmission of Trauma and Loss,” taught by Toni Heineman, D. M. H., Alicia Lieberman, Ph.D., and Harvey Peskin, Ph.D. Committee member Leeann Borton, Ph.D., did an excellent job planning, coordinating, and moderating the event.
We are thrilled to present a wide variety of courses for the Fall 2002 -Spring 2003 academic year, designed to meet the varied interests and needs of the psychoanalytic community. In an effort to fulfill CE requirements for psychologists, MFTs, and LCSWs, we are offering “Legal and Ethical Issues for the Psychoanalytically Oriented Clinician,” which will be taught by Michael Donner, Ph.D., on October 19th; and a four-week (7 hours total) evening seminar course on HIV/AIDS beginning October 8th. And on March 1st, 2003, we will be repeating the well-received “The Supervisory Interaction: A Contemporary Psychodynamic Approach,” again taught by Jane Burka, Ph.D., and Joan Sarnat, Ph.D.
This fall, we are also offering seminar courses on a variety of fascinating topics: Neil Talkoff, Ph.D., will teach “The Relevance of the Dream in Contemporary Psychoanalysis: Living with Uncertainty, Acting Decisively”; Annie Sweetnam, Ph.D., will teach “Projective Identification”; and Joseph Bobrow, Ph.D., will teach “Exploring Creativity and Mystical Sensibilities Through the Work of Marion Milner.”
