Psychoanalytic Association

The Psychoanalytic Association (PA) is a professional, collegial association open to all graduates and current students of WCSPP for a yearly membership fee. The many benefits of membership include opportunities to network with clinicians from many disciplines throughout the tri-state area and listing in a directory of all members, including their specialities (a very useful tool), access to PEP-WEB, an online comprehensive library of psychoanalytic journals and books, invitations to attend bi-monthly Scientific Meetings and Fireside Chats, as well as the association’s annual retreat/conference. Most importantly, attendance at PA functions can help you develop and foster a professional home.

Licensed professionals who have not trained at WCSPP can download an application to be an affiliate member and send it to bilhagoldberg@gmail.com.

Psychoanalytic Association’s Benefits

Dear prospective member,

How wonderful that, with WCSPP, you share an interest in just how enlivening and liberating the psychoanalytic experience can be. In fact, spend some time with the members of the WCSPP community, and you will find clinicians who, above all else, are committed to working well with their patients. For one, our work lives can get very lonely, especially given the intensity of our occupation. Having a community where we can share our thoughts and experiences keeps our work and ourselves even more enlivened.

The Psychoanalytic Association of WCSPP was formed soon after the founding of the Center. The aim is to ensure an organized way to continue the learning and collegial connections that begin during training. Graduates enjoy peer supervision groups, reading groups, writing groups, and ongoing educational events. Our annual retreat is a members’ only weekend, which is both fun and revitalizing.

But, my own favorite aspect of the community is how we welcome participation, ideas and initiatives from everyone. From planning a weekend conference, to writing papers, to creating unexpected opportunities within WCSPP at large, involvement makes our work more fun.

I hope you will contact me if you are even the slightest bit interested in becoming a part of our uniquely welcoming community.

Sincerely,

Bilha Goldberg, LCSW

Annual Retreat Committee

Judith Adamo, Ph.D. ja@judithadamo.com

The annual Retreat represents a weekend of learning and socializing held exclusively for members of WCSPP. It is borne from a volunteer committee that creates the topic, gathers speakers, and organizes the entire weekend. The committee meets monthly and is open to whomever would like to join and to participate in ways that are helpful. These meetings are typically full of creativity and levity that culminate in a wonderful weekend of learning and fun.
