The American Psychoanalytic Association

The American Psychoanalytic Association (APsaA), the oldest national psychoanalytic organization in the nation, was founded in 1911. APsaA, as a professional organization for psychoanalysts, focuses on education, research and membership development.

APsaA has developed vibrant and innovative programming for the mental health profession and the general public. The Association and its more than 3,500 highly trained members gather at biannual meetings in January and June to exchange ideas, present research papers, and discuss training and membership issues. Many public activities relating to psychoanalysis are presented by the APsaA’s affiliated societies and by institutes which have the highest level of training for psychoanalysts.


The Society currently consists of approximately 2,000 members and 650 associate members. To be eligible for membership, a person must hold the Ph.D. degree or equivalent, and must have published significant psychological research beyond the doctoral dissertation.

Typically a successful candidate will be at least two years post-Ph.D. and will have at least four research publications in high-quality refereed journals after the date of the Ph.D. Furthermore, at least two of the publications will be first-authored and at least three will be based on research subsequent to the Ph.D.

Candidates for membership must be nominated by a member of the Society and elected by the Membership Committee of the Governing Board. These selections are made twice a year. To be eligible for Associate membership, a person must hold the Ph.D. degree or equivalent and must be nominated by a member of the Society

The Jean Piaget Society

The Jean Piaget Society, established in 1970, has an international, interdisciplinary membership of scholars, teachers and researchers interested in exploring the nature of the developmental construction of human knowledge. The Society was named in honor of the Swiss developmentalist, Jean Piaget, who made major theoretical and empirical contributions to our understanding of the origins and evolution of knowledge.
The Society’s aim is to provide an open forum, through symposia, books, our journal, and other publications for the presentation and discussion of scholarly work on issues related to human knowledge and its development. The Society further encourages the application of advances in the understanding of development to education and other domains.
In 1989, the name of the Society was changed to Jean Piaget Society: Society for the Study of Knowledge and Development.

The Who Cares? Trust

The Who Cares? Trust is a voice and a champion for children and young people in the UK living in care.   The site is also beneficial for other countries as well.

Despite recent advances in policy and legislation, many children in care still face a future of extreme under-achievement, instability and poverty. All too often, these young people are on the outside looking in on the opportunities their peers experience as a matter of course. They can feel socially excluded for their whole lifetime; their trust and self-esteem can be so undermined that they are unable to achieve their full potential. They have to cope with obstacles far beyond the normal milestones of development experienced by all children as they grow up.

The Who Cares? Trust was set up as a charity in 1992 to improve the everyday lives and future life chances of these children, of whom there are currently 74,000 around the UK. The charity grew out of the magazine Who Cares? (started in 1985) which we still publish today.

As well as helping thousands of children in care directly through our publications and projects, we also help bring about change by guiding and influencing those responsible for children in care. We help them to think and do differently, with the needs and perspective of the child at the centre.

We give young people in care a voice through their involvement in our magazines and publications, and by helping them relay their concerns and views to decision-makers in local and central government.

With the right help and people in their lives who believe in them, every child in care can thrive. The Who Cares? Trust is dedicated to making this vision a reality.
