The American Psychoanalytic Association (APsaA) is an association of psychoanalysts in the United States. APsaA serves as a scientific and professional organization with a focus on education, research, and membership development.


It was founded in 1911 by Ernest Jones, with the support of Sigmund Freud and is the second oldest American psychoanalytic organization, after the New York Psychoanalytic Society, founded a few months before by Abraham Arden Brill.


APsaA has over 3,000 members, including 32 accredited training institutes and 40 affiliate societies. At the association's biannual meetings held in January and June, members convene to exchange ideas, present research, and discuss training and membership issues.
