Association for Child Psychoanalysis Annual Meeting

May 4-6, 2018

Santa Fe, New Mexico

The Association for Child Psychoanalysis (ACP) Program Committee invites papers that describe in-depth analytic work with children and adolescents.  Proposals should be between three and five 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.   

At this time, a theme has not been selected for the conference. We have found that areas of focus suggest themselves from common threads evident in the proposals received by the Committee.  

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 specify those venues. In this cover letter, please indicate the frequency, i.e., number of sessions per week, and any changes in frequency that occurred during the course of the treatment.  The cover letter will be seen by only the two of us and Ms. Janet Blomquist, the ACP Administrator.  Proposals should be sent to Ms. 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 proposals.
