The "Psychoanalysis in Psychiatry" Section officially began in 2002, finding its place as one of sixty-six WPA sections, after a long process coordinated by Daniel Simon Kipman (France). The aims of the Section are to explore how psychoanalysis may enrich daily clinical practice of psychiatry and provide a forum for interdisciplinary trans-theoretical discussions. Section members study links between theory and practice of psychodynamic psychiatry, neuroscience, social sciences, the humanities and clinical research.
The "Psychoanalysis in Psychiatry" section concerns itself with:
the dissemination of psychoanalytic theory to psychiatrists and other expert mental health clinicians,
the promotion of discussion of the role and function of psychoanalysis in psychiatry, medicine, and healthcare in general,
the creation of links with different fields of research—within psychiatry itself and also other fields
providing psychiatrists and mental health clinicians worldwide with opportunities to advance psychoanalytic and psychodynamic psychotherapy competency and performance through educational activities.
