    Be a Part of our Professional Community



    The Massachusetts Association for Psychoanalytic Psychology (MAPP) was founded in 1988, initially with 100 members. Now we have almost 250 members and are a strong educational presence in psychoanalytic psychology within the greater Boston community.


    Curious about the benefits of membership? Explore the education and community opportunities that come with membership below.



    MAPP programs multiple speakers and workshops throughout the year that create a forum for lively scholarly and clinical exchange. Admission is free for members and continuing education credits are available. We also offer annual courses for only a $25 registration fee (waived for sustaining members).

    Our programs are theoretically stimulating and clinically relevant, focusing on issues of current interest in contemporary psychoanalysis. Recent local and out-of-town speakers have included Lew Aron, Jessica Benjamin, Dan Buie, Steven Cooper, Darlene Ehrenberg, Virginia Goldner, Irwin Hoffman, Lynne Layton, Karlen Lyons-Ruth, Owen Renik, Roy Schafer, and many others.



    MAPP is a place where you can share your clinical work and affiliate in a collegial and informal setting. Gain access to our email referral group where you can receive referrals directly in your email inbox. Connect with other members through participating in peer supervision, study groups, and on our board. Discuss professional concerns and issues. Improve your training level and skill.

    Graduate Students and Trainees


    We are passionate about making psychoanalytic education and community accessible. Graduate students can join at a substantially reduced rate. We also hold student-oriented programming where you can connect to the larger psychoanalytic mental health community in the Boston area.
