News from the APsaA meeting, January, 2016

by William C. Glover, PhD, Chair Psychoanalytic Education Division
BOPS Fellow, Alternate Councilor, to the Executive Council, APsaA

 

The By-Law amendment giving Executive Council authority and responsibility in all areas of organizational function-ing, including education, WAS APPROVED. 23 majority necessary for adoption. For – 930 (69.3%). Against – 412 (30.7%). This is a historic moment for APsaA as the long-running governance struggle over BOPS’s autonomy is decisively resolved.

Lee Jaffe won election as President-elect by a similar margin of victory. Harriet Wolfe takes office as President this June and Lee will succeed her in June 2018. Lee supported the By-Law amendment while his opponent, Harvey Schwartz, opposed it.

Hal Sampson, PhD - An Appreciation

Hal Sampson, PhD - An Appreciation

by Suzanne Gassner, PhD

 

As you all may know, Hal Sampson, PhD, died on April 23, 2015. For many years Hal played an important role at the then named San Francisco Psychoanalytic Institute and Society (SFPI). He was on the faculty, taught a course on Freud's dream book and became a Life Member. Along with Joe Weiss, MD, he co-led the Mt Zion Hospital Research Group, later named the San Francisco Research Group; the work of that group was co-sponsored by SFPI and Mt. Zion Hospital. The gifts Hal Sampson offered to all of us who were privileged to have a long term working relationship with him were many.
