CE Now Required for Psychologists

Important Notification for psychologists affiliated with MPS and MPI:

The CE rule became effective on September 15, 2015. The requirement is for 30 hours of CE, 2 of which need to be in pain management, and 3 in ethics. The rule states that:

An applicant for license renewal who has been licensed for the 2-year period immediately preceding the application date for renewal shall accumulate not less than 30 hours of continuing education in activities approved by the board under these rules during the 2 years immediately preceding the application for renewal.

Note that Dr. Celenza's paper on Saturday March 19 is on the subject of ethics--boundary violations.

Colleague and Patient Assistance Committee

This joint committee of the Society and Institute is available to any patient, student, candidate, or faculty member who may have a concern about the competency or ethical behavior of any psychoanalyst whether in an educational or clinical situation. The committee will handle all concerns or complaints confidentially. An inquiry may be initiated through consulting the co-chairs Harvey H. Falit, M.D. or Maxine Grumet, Ph.D. or any of the committee members: Nancy Blieden Ph.D., Marcy Broder, M.S.W., Charles Burch, Ph.D., Lena Ehrlich, Ph.D., Barbara Killian, M.D., Ivan Sherick, Ph.D. or Margaret Walsh, Ph.D. The major thrust of this committee is consultation and mediation. Early discussion of complaints tends to prevent more serious ethical violations in the future. For further information, please contact any of the above listed committee members.

About Psychoanalysis

The psychoanalytic framework stresses the importance of understanding:

  • that each individual is unique,
  • that there are factors outside of a person's awareness (unconscious thoughts, feelings and experiences) which influence his or her thoughts and actions,
  • that the past shapes the present
  • that human beings are always engaged in the process of development throughout their lives.   [Read more about psychoanalysis]
