Mission and Principles

NPAP is a community of psychoanalysts devoted to the training and continued development of psychoanalysts and the advancement of psychoanalysis both as a branch of knowledge and as clinical practice. Our values are:

Theoretical Openness: We endorse psychoanalytic thought grounded in Freud and including contemporary perspectives.

Diversity: We welcome candidates and members from varied backgrounds.

Personal and Professional Growth: We support the lifelong development of psychoanalysts through rigorous and flexible training, continuing education, and research.

Democratic Principles: We encourage all members and candidates to participate in the governance of the association and training institute.

Participation in the Larger Psychoanalytic Community: We contribute to the intellectual psychoanalytic dialogue through our scientific meetings, conferences, and publications, including The Psychoanalytic Review.

Service: We offer low-fee psychoanalysis and psychotherapy to the community at large.
