Co-sponsored by:

The Research Education Section of the American Psychoanalytic Association, Department of Psychoanalytic Education (APsaA-DPE) in collaboration with the Research Committee of the New Center for Psychoanalysis (NCP)

Linda S. Goodman, Ph.D. and Morris N. Eagle, Ph.D., Co-chairs

This set of Research Education Resources serves to provide materials for stimulating interest in topics and research relevant to psychoanalytic education.  Our goal is that materials made available here will stimulate critical thinking and will help ground psychoanalytic training in a framework that integrates psychoanalytic knowledge with relevant findings from other disciplines.

On the onset, the resources available in this section of NCP's website will permanently house the following:
