The History of CAPA

Elise W. Snyder, M.D.

This article describes the history of CAPA (China American Psychoanalytic Alliance), from its unplanned conception in 2001, to its birth (incorporation as a 501c3 nonprofit) with Yale University as the midwife in 2006, to its development and growth over the next 13 years with more than 400 Western teachers, treaters and supervisors acting as godparents engaged in training more than 500 Chinese mental health professionals as analytic psychotherapists, more than 35 of whom are now in distance training at APsaA psychoanalytic institutes. CAPA’s goal, which seems within reach, has been for the Chinese graduates of CAPA to take over psychoanalytic psychotherapy training and ultimately, psychoanalytic training in China.
