Appalachian Psychoanalytic Society

Join the Appalachian Psychoanalytic Society

We welcome licensed mental health providers as professional members. Graduate students in clinical or counseling psychology, or social work, may join as student members. Undergraduate students with a demonstrated interest in psychoanalysis may apply for student membership if they are sponsored in writing by a Professional Member and approved by the Membership Committee. Others interested in psychoanalysis may join as scholar members upon approval of the APS Board. No previous knowledge or specific training in psychoanalytic studies are necessary. 

Member benefits:

  • Receive a reduced rate for APS Fall and Spring Conferences and other continuing education events, where we host speakers with local, national, and international reputations.  Graduate student members may attend Saturday Morning Seminars at no charge, with early online registration.
  • Participate in programs for members only, including the Paul Lerner Scholars' Symposium.
  • Be listed in the APS Membership Directory, with clinical practice information, including specialty areas.
  • Involvement in a thoughtful professional community, enjoying conversation and networking opportunities within APS and through joint projects with other mental health organizations.
  • As part of APS' commitment to Division 39, we are able to provide stipends to graduate students and early career professionals to attend the Division 39 Spring Meeting. In addition stipends may also be provided to help fund graduate student research that is informed by psychoanalytic theory, as well as stipends to attend other psychoanalytic professional conferences and meetings.
