Analyst-In -Training Committee | Amanda Lenox, Alexander Kohen and Nilton Maltz
The Analyst-in-Training (AIT) Committee invited all candidates to submit previously published or unpublished papers that promote psychoanalysis or have a psychoanalytic theme. The submission process was open February 15th to April 15th, 2018. The AIT Committee selected 5 papers to promote on June 1st based on content and merit. Winners were announced publicly at the annual NAAP conference just after the Gradiva Awards. We proudly highlight these papers and have them available for reading here.
Our mission is to cultivate, support, and inspire candidates to speak as leaders at forums on psychoanalytic ideas and findings. We want to provide candidates with professional opportunities and to endorse their visions across the various schools of thought. We are eager to host our second call for submissions in November 2019 and will be posting our submission dates soon.
