Welcome to SEFAPP
The Southeast Florida Association for Psychoanalytic Psychology (SEFAPP), formed in 1987, is a local chapter of the Division of Psychoanalysis (Division 39) of the American Psychological Association.
SEFAPP is a multi-disciplinary organization of primarily mental health professionals who are committed to furthering the understanding and growth of psychoanalytic ideas and practices throughout the south Florida tri-county area.
Wanting to reach beyond the psychoanalytic community alone and to impart the exciting developments that psychoanalysis has seen since its founding over 100 years ago, SEFAPP presents conferences that span a wide array of topics and appeal to a diverse audience.
Featuring local as well as nationally and internationally known speakers, SEFAPP’s programs include topics such as sexual abuse, eating disorders, anti-Semitism, and gender identity. Over the past year, we have presented conferences on the most current research in neuroscience and psychotherapy, as well as parenting styles based upon attachment theory and research.
SEFAPP is a welcoming home for those who wish to gather together amongst like-minded individuals to share ideas, concerns, and suggestions. In addition to the more formal conferences, there are Sunday brunches and movie presentations that allow for time to mingle and get acquainted with colleagues and friends. Students of all levels find SEFAPP a place to learn, as well as to find support in the pursuit of their careers.
We invite you to join us. Get involved. Join a committee. Become a Board member. Or come to one of our conferences and experience first-hand what SEFAPP has to offer.
