The New York Psychoanalytic Society is the oldest psychoanalytic organization in the United States. It was founded in 1911 by Dr. Abraham A. Brill and a small group of like-minded colleagues, who were excited by and committed to the revolutionary discoveries of Sigmund Freud and his students. Training in psychoanalysis was rather informal until 1931 when the Society established the New York Psychoanalytic Institute. It was the first psychoanalytic training center in the United States, and it has had a long and distinguished history. It was here that major advances in psychoanalytic theory and practice were made. The Institute was the professional home of many of the best known analysts of their time. These included Kurt Eissler, Heinz Hartmann, Ernst Kris, Rudolph Loewenstein, Charles Brenner, Margaret Mahler, and many others. Today, an excellent faculty and membership carry on their commitment to scholarship and to the highest clinical standards. While remaining faithful to its traditions, the Institute has modernized its curriculum and greatly increased the number of programs it offers. Younger members are encouraged, as soon as they have graduated, to become active in educational and administrative capacities. After much deliberation, we have now adopted a new form of governance. The Society and Institute have been merged and we now have a single Board and President. A new office, that of the Dean, has been created. The Dean oversees all of our educational programs. The Education Committee will continue to supervise the analytic training program. Our aim is to make our governance both more inclusive and more efficient.
