Psychoanalytic Research Society
The overall purpose of this section is to promote psychoanalytic research of an empirical, theoretical and clinical nature.

The section stimulates and supports communication among researchers by the use of professional meeting and publications. In addition, Section VI aims to facilitate (1) the continual development and training of psychoanalytically oriented researchers; and, (2) the broadening of the role that psychoanalytic research plays in general psychology, with other related professional disciplines, and to the public.
