Welcome to the Appalachian Psychoanalytic Society!

APS is a local chapter of the Division of Psychoanalysis (39) of the American Psychological Association with a primary mission to serve the educational and collegial needs of psychoanalytic psychotherapists in East Tennessee and western North Carolina. In addition, our mission is to promote, inform, and educate members of our community concerning psychoanalytic ideas and values.

Who may join?

Any licensed mental health professional who subscribes to the mission and values of APS is eligible to be a full member. Graduate students in clinical or counseling psychology, or social work, may join as student members. Others interested in psychoanalysis, may join as scholar members upon approval of the APS Board.
