The American Psychoanalyst

The American Psychoanalyst (TAP), the quarterly magazine of the Association, has a dual mandate. TAP reports on news of the organization, events, meetings, reports from committees, elections, announcements and appointments. Political issues and controversies, innovations and initiatives are covered extensively. To this end, there are regular columns from the president, technology notes, and interviews with key members of the organization.

The second mandate of TAP is coverage of issues concerning American psychoanalysis as a practice and technique. Societal and government issues that concern psychoanalysis are featured as well as reports from developments in international psychoanalysis. Each edition also includes an in-depth section on a topic of special interest as well as regular columns on politics and public policy, and on psychoanalytic science.
