Graduate Student Committee

Graduate students comprise a significant portion (over 10%) of the membership of Division 39. The aims, interests, concerns, values, and ideas of graduate students thus represent an important source of information within the division. The Graduate Student Committee (GSC) of Division 39 is very active in advocating for and promoting student interests within the division, as well as providing graduate students opportunities to present their ideas on psychoanalytic theory, technique, and research at national conferences.Some of the issues and topics of interest that have been or are currently being explored include: lowering conference fees for students, student voting rights for divisional elections, providing dissertation and research awards for student-members, having an annual student paper competition, and creating a student list-serve on email.We invite any feedback from the student membership about these topics, as well as any ideas or suggestions about topics that the GSC should pursue. We are enthusiastic about and committed to serving you and representing your concerns and interests, and want to be available to you.Attending the conferences (particularly the spring conference) is an excellent way to hear the latest ideas about psychoanalysis, to meet leading thinkers and clinicians in the field, to feel part of a psychoanalytic community, and to present and discuss your own ideas and areas of interest. As a way of enhancing and promoting the interests and ideas of fellow graduate students, the GSC sponsors two symposia every year at two conferences: the spring Division 39 conference and the larger APA conference in the summer. Call-For-Participation notices go out in the spring and summer, and proposals (3-5 pages) are due by September 15 for the spring conference and October 1 for the summer conference
