    Women in the New York Psychoanalytic Society & Institute, 1911-1961

    Tuesday, March 11, 2014
    8:00 PM

    From its inception in 1911, the New York Psychoanalytic Society has counted women among its members, but it was not until the late 1930s that women began to play a major role in its affairs. The contributions of these women analysts to the development of NYPSI and psychoanalysis are illustrated by focusing on both well-known figures and those whose contributions have faded from awareness over time. The first two women members of NYPSI were Beatrice Hinkle (1874-1953) and Josephine Jackson (1865-1945). The contributions of the diverse group of women analysts who followed in their wake are sketched by Nellie Thompson.The lives and careers of Margaret Fries, Lillian Malcove, Edith Jacobson and Berta Bornstein will be discussed by panelists Helene Keable, Patricia Nachman, Mary Kay O'Neil, and Nellie L. Thompson (moderator).

    Funding for this video recording has been provided by the American Psychoanalytic Foundation through the American Psychoanalytic Association.
