David Feinsilver, M.D. launched the United States chapter of ISPS in 1998, aiming to join with other professionals and lay people to promote the humane, comprehensive, and in-depth treatment of [psychosis].

NYU Postdoctoral Program in Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis
The New York University Postdoctoral Program in Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis (“Postdoc”) is a vibrant, engaging community that values psychoanalytic pluralism, ongoing dialogue among the various psychoanalytic traditions, and respect for the candidate in analytic training as a mature adult, accomplished clinician and scholar. We have always believed that the best setting in which to pursue psychoanalytic training incorporating these principles is at a university with an established tradition of intellectual inquiry, freedom of thought, interdisciplinary exchange, and a commitment to research.
The Psychoanalytic Consortium is comprised of five psychoanalytic organizations: the American Academy of Psychodynamic Psychiatry and Psychoanalysis, the American Association for Psychoanalysis in Clinical Social Work, the American Psychoanalytic Association, the Confederation of Independent Psychoanalytic Societies, and the Division of Psychoanalysis (39) of the American Psychological Association.
