ACADEMY FOR THE STUDY OF THE PSYCHOANALYTIC ARTS
The Academy is a special interest Section within MSPP. The Academy www.AcademyAnalyticArts.org was formed in 1995 for the purpose of advancing the study of psychoanalytic epistemology, theory, practice, ethics, and education within a psychological framework consisting of philosophy, the arts, and the anthropic sciences as opposed to biology, medicine, and the natural sciences. Www.AcademyProjects.org is a section of the Academy's website that addresses Legal, Ethical, and Professional Issues in Psychoanalysis and Psychotherapy.
