History

Washington Professionals for the Study of Psychoanalysis (WPSP) was organized in 1980 by a group of psychologists and clinicians. WPSP was one of the first groups to be admitted as a Local Chapter of Division 39 (Psychoanalysis) of the American Psychological Association. WPSP has expanded to an organization where meetings are attended by interested professionals from the wider community, providing study groups, salons, and conferences for more than 300 members throughout the years.

Meetings, Salons, and Conferences are held in the Washington, DC metropolitan area.

 
Washington Professionals for the Study of Psychoanalysis (WPSP) was organized with the purpose to provide a forum for professional communication and exploration of the clinical and theoretical aspects of psychoanalysis from a variety of perspectives.
