    The ACP Program Committee invites workshop proposals for the 2017 and

    2018 Annual Meeting. 


    We have decided to begin the process for the 2018 program unusually early, in

    order to reduce the time pressures that  develop in light of busy schedules of

    everyone concerned.  The 2017 Annual Meeting will take place in Ann Arbor,

    Michigan Friday, April 21 – Sunday, April 23 at the Sheraton Ann Arbor Hotel.

    The dates and location for the 2018 Annual Meeting will be decided in May



    The Committee invites papers that describe in-depth analytic work with children

    and adolescents.  The theme for the conferences has not yet been determined, so

    at this point we welcome all proposals that demonstrate an in-depth, engaged

    analytic process.  Proposals should be at least three double-spaced pages in length

    and should include one or two detailed examples of the analytic process in addition

    to a brief dynamic case formulation.


    The review by the Committee is a blind, ( i.e., anonymous,) process.  For this reason,

    please be sure that your proposal does not include any information that would identify

    you, including your city or state.  Please attach a signed cover letter that lets us know

    whether or not the paper has been or will be presented in any other venues,( i.e.,

    presentations or publications), and specifies those venues.  In addition, please indicate

    whether you would be willing to present this paper at the 2017 conference April 21-23 in

    Ann Arbor, Michigan, or the 2018 conference, dates and location to be decided in May of

    2016, or at either conference.  The cover letter will be seen by only the two of us

    and Janet Blomquist, the ACP Administrator.


    Proposals should be sent to Janet Blomquist at


    If you have questions, please contact Denia Barrett at or

    (216) 849-8858, or Sydney Anderson at or

    (812) 331-2800.


    We hope you will consider sharing your clinical experiences with child psychoanalytic

    colleagues, as every contribution benefits us all.  We are available to think with you

    or to serve as sounding boards as you develop your proposal.
