About Austin Psychoanalytic
We are an interdisciplinary organization of mental health professionals – psychologists, social workers, licensed professional counselors, marriage and family therapists, and psychiatrists – devoted to keeping psychoanalytic and psychodynamic theories and practice thriving in Central Texas. Austin Psychoanalytic seeks to engage with mental health professionals, students, non-clinical scholars, and our colleagues in all other fields of arts and sciences at any level of interest in psychoanalytic thought, and invite all to join our study and to contribute their unique experience and wisdom to the enhancement of this dynamic field. Through support, information, education and training, we aim to provide all who have an interest and motivation to expand their experiences with psychoanalytic thinking and techniques a place to interact with other like-minded individuals. We invite those who are not familiar with contemporary theory and practice to participate in our activities and learn more about the exciting developments in psychoanalytic thought over the past 110 years. Founded in 1988, Austin Psychoanalytic is a local chapter of the Division of Psychoanalysis (Division 39) of the American Psychological Association.
