American Psychological Foundation Invites Applications for Projects at Interface of Psychoanalysis and Society

The American Psychological Foundation is accepting applications for its Division 39 Grant.

According to the foundation, the future of psychoanalysis depends on countering the field’s insularity and increasing public awareness of the benefits of psychoanalytic treatments and the applications of psychoanalytic thought to organizational and social problems.

To that end, the 2019 Division 39 grant is designed to help build the psychoanalytic profession’s capacity in this area. Through the program, a single grant of $6,000 will be awarded for work that articulates for the general public the value of psychoanalytic principles and/or treatments.

The foundation is interested in work in the areas of education, research, and service that demonstrate the value of psychoanalytic principals and is especially committed to supporting the next generation of psychoanalysts and psychoanalytically oriented psychologists and to improving the health and well-being of underserved populations.

Eligible applicants must have a demonstrated knowledge of psychoanalytic principles and may be a practicing psychoanalytic therapist, although this is not a requirement.

See the American Psychological Foundation website for complete program guidelines and application instructions.


Deadline: May 15, 2019
