For over 30 years, psychoanalytically interested students and faculty have met several times a semester during the Monday breaks. During these meetings we engaged in a variety of activities such as case discussions, presentations of dissertation research, discussion of special topics and theories not covered in course work, introductions to measures and publications such as the Psychodynamic Diagnostic Manual, presentations by guests from outside the department, and discussions of current events. During the 2017-2018 academic year, our psychoanalytic “study group” has grown and diversified in both its aim and scope of activities. We have given ourselves a title and developed a website and library. The Psychoanalytic Studies Group (PSG) is no longer only a Student Interest Group as we have expanded our membership to include alums, faculty, and supervisors.
We are reaching out to you, in our roles as the PSG Faculty and Student Coordinators, to share information pertaining to resources available through the group, recent scholarly and professional activities of our members, and our future projects and aspirations. We are inviting anyone interested –including alums, supervisors, faculty, and students — to become affiliated with the PSG. There are many ways to connect and to be engaged, as the PSG is no longer limited to an on-campus meeting.
