Welcome to mappsych.org, official website of the Massachusetts Association for Psychoanalytic Psychology (MAPP).

MAPP was founded in Boston in 1983 as the local chapter of Division 39 (Psychoanalysis) of the American Psychological Association. With approximately 220 members, MAPP has become a professional home to mental health clinicians in the Boston area and throughout Massachusetts who share an interest in psychoanalytic theory, practice, and research.

Do you have an interest in learning more about psychoanalytic theory, practice, and research? You do not have to be an analyst in order to join! Psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, mental health counselors, and nurses are all welcome, as are graduate students, clinical trainees, and licensed health professionals of all mental health disciplines.
