The PANY Graduate Society


The Graduate Society at PANY, founded in 1955, is comprised of PANY members who hold degrees in medicine, psychology, social work and other mental health professions. The Graduate Society has several functions. First, it represents our organization, PANY, as a component society of the American Psychoanalytic Association (APsaA). In addition, the Graduate Society sponsors monthly scientific meetings, providing a venue where scholars present recent findings in psychoanalysis as well as topics dealing with the relationship between psychoanalysis and other fields – such as child development, the neurosciences, and the arts. These meetings are open to the public, including psychoanalytic and psychotherapy candidates, and are designed to enhance the education of psychoanalytic clinicians. The Society also sponsors postgraduate seminars that are open to PANY faculty members. In addition to postgraduate education, the Society helps to promote practice development and the profession of psychoanalysis, including increasing public awareness of the wide usefulness of psychoanalytic ideas as well as the utility and efficacy of psychoanalytic therapies. The Society Student Aid Fund assists psychoanalytic candidates in financing their training. Finally, the Society sponsors social functions – fun get-togethers that are so important for strengthening the cohesiveness of our psychoanalytic association.
