PPP loan We had borrowed under this government program $70,000, and all of it has been used for payroll expense starting from May 2020. This month we will begin the process of filing for loan forgiveness which was one of the stipulations of the origin PPP loan. If we are forgiven, we will owe none of total borrowed amount of $70,000. The chances of forgiveness happening are almost a sure thing.

Fiscal status We finished our last fiscal period, 2019-2020, with what looked like a $93,000 surplus; however, here are some of the details: • We had reduced maintenance costs because we were closed for a number of months • Also, a decision was made to postpone some condo rent until the next fiscal period Psychoanalysis Racial Justice Group Newsletter because of cash flow issues, and faculty fees were also paid in the next fiscal period. • The net estimated result would be about $30,000 of that $93,000 surplus. r a i that n P s y30% c h o a n can a l y s t be s attributed to reduced member • Rental income was off by 30%.

While this is good news, please be aware that patient fees are not “pure” profit. • Remember that the stipends to the candidates are paid from those patient fees and those stipends represented in this last fiscal period 40% of those fees. There are also additional expenses to run our clinic, like maintenance, condo fees, utilities/heating, phone, and staff salaries and benefits, etc.

Basically, we hope our other income sources will remain constant. In addition, the assessment monies from our members and their generous donations helped to stave off deficits up to now. At some point though we will be running cash flow deficits, perhaps by March 2021, and we anticipate those deficits to be $10K-$15k per month. Any deficit will have to be made up by drawing down from our reserve account, which we will be able to do on an as-need basis rather than one lump sum, thus enabling more of our funds to continue to grow. The PPP program might be extended, but we cannot be sure now. Respectfully submitted, John Augliera, Treasurer Racial Justice Group Newsletter

CEC has had a busy year despite or in response to our quarantine that has been in place most of the year. We decided to offer monthly (now 8th month offering) meetings to the full NPAP community so that we can chat, process, share— whatever it takes to nurture us during a time of deprivation (CEs also included). There have been as many as 100 present or as little 45. It has meant a lot to say members as far away as Florida or Indiana or as near as in the same zip code. We’ve had a lot to process whether our political reality (we went through an election together) or how to deal with clinical issues where our office is an IPhone. And how to protect and nourish ourselves while also clarifying our clinical issues. It has meant a lot to our community, we feel. We will continue the meetings as long as they matter to the community.

The greater effort of Legislation during this past year has been in monitoring the conditions and outcomes of aspects of the NY State Office of the Professions regarding the NY State License in Psychoanalysis. There have been reports of major delays in responses from the Office with results of the licensing exam, confusing or contradictory feedback in the case of a failed exam, and some serious environmental problems related to safety issues to protect from coronavirus infection at the testing sites. Additionally, there have been major delays in the approval of foreign master’s degrees in order for Institutes to be able to accept international candidates.

Center

The Legislative Chair has worked together with NAAP and the Alliance of Psychotherapy Institutes to work through appropriate channels to address these situations. NAAP (along with the Alliance) is engaged in a data collecting effort to document these issues so formal action can be taken with the OP. The Chair is a direct participant in the Alliance data-gathering project, as well as an active member of the ABAP (American Board for Accreditation in Psychoanalysis) Psychoanalysis Racial Justice accreditation Group Newsletter efforts.

Program Committee

Our committee planned to provide a program for each month of the 2019-2020 academic year. These programs were all designed to feature presentations from members and candidates from Training the NPAP community and were held on the second Friday of each month. The theme for this Psychoanalytic Institute in year’s presentations was scheduled to be The Body in Psychoanalysis: Clinical Integration or Psychoanalysis Disintegration. All the presentations were advertised as being part of the Friday Society Meetings.

The meta-goal of the regular meetings was to create a regular forum for NPAP members and candidates to gather on campus and have an open format to discuss each other’s work. Our community has a propensity of becoming diffuse, with so many classes taught off-site and people stretching their studies over several years. We felt this format would help to create a sense of a “centering” of the NPAP community. Over the past four years almost all our programs have also served the purpose of qualifying to give CE credits for attendees with special thanks to the help of Penny Rosen. Although we limited the primary presenters to Members and Candidates, discussants could be from the greater psychoanalytic community. It is also our hope that eventually this could become a weekly gathering where papers and cases were presented by people within and beyond Psychoanalysis Racial Justice NPAP Group would Newsletter be regularly featured.

The Psychoanalytic Review Owing to a number of circumstances and a reduction of manuscript submissions, The Editor of The Psychoanalytic Review reached an agreement with Guilford Press, and endorsed by the Joint Boards, whereby The Review would cease publishing six times a year and become a quarterly beginning in 2021.

We are working toward creating a fully functioning, professional Archive whose mission is to collect, protect and provide the documents, materials, and artifacts of Theodor Reik, NPAP and its members who have made a significant contribution in developing psychoanalysis as an Independent field of study.

On March 13th we closed the Institute and the Clinic and moved our entire operation online! What only a few weeks earlier seemed inconceivable to all of us, psychoanalytic training and work online, became a reality overnight! And as it looks, this will stay with us in one form or another, for better and for worse. With the tireless help of our professional administrative staff, we set up Zoom accounts so that all our courses could be taught online, all supervision could be conducted online, and all administrative and committee work could be carried out online. And we did it! I thank all the faculty members, supervisors and committee members and chairs for their

We conducted 3 successful online open houses, another first, where we also had some attendees from the far reaches of the world, bringing into relief future training possibilities. (See the report from the Student Outreach committee). When we closed the Institute in March, it was with the belief that we would remain closed until the beginning of the new year, always based on the assumption that the pandemic would be behind us. Well, this is clearly not so. We will follow CDC guidelines, as we have all along, and we have begun to develop protocols for a reopening. However, I do not see us holding inperson classes, nor will on-site treatment be reopened for in-person therapy before September of 2021, and likely not until January 2022.

In the early fall we were thrown another curve. The government stipulated that all F1 visa students in the country must attend in-person classes or risk deportation. Once again we had only a few days to come up with a solution. We decided to offer Case Presentations by Guest Analysts because it can be taken for credit by candidates at all levels. The presentations themselves would take place on Zoom, but we would ask for faculty volunteers to travel to the various areas where our F1 visa candidates live and conduct outdoor, one-on-one, sociallydistanced discussions of the cases they had heard. Again, faculty rose to the call and volunteered. Fortunately, the ruling was overturned at the last minute and we did not have to take this extra step.

This will continue periodically in 2021. We hope Clinical newer candidates will begin to join Psychoanalysis more frequently as well! In September, Social Chair Chris Wolter hosted two in-person, outdoor gatherings for newer candidates, one in Brooklyn and one in Manhattan. Chris also took the helm of publishing Free Associations, the MIT newsletter.

MITO was involved in the creation of two initiatives to address racial justice. The MITO AntiBias committee was created for candidates. The Racial Justice Initiative at NPAP is an ad-hoc committee of both members and candidates. Both aim to explore and work on anti-racist initiatives in psychoanalysis and at NPAP. MITO is excited about offering two Theodor Reik Guest Lectureships in 2021, Orna Guralnik on counseling couples in the winter and Klara Naszkowska on female émigré psychoanalysts in the spring. Other goals and plans for MITO in 2021 may include study groups on Freudian theory and/or issues in diagnosis, more events designed to connect newer and more veteran candidates, and exploring ways to enhance the MIT experience.

We refined our open house presentation through the use of a slideshow that Tom Taylor managed, and that we have created based on an existing "at-a-glance” that had been the primary visual element of past open houses. We solidified our informational documents regarding elements of time and cost of our psychoanalytic training program. All of this work was a collaboration of many hands, mostly those belonging to folks on IEC and MITOEC. We were also able to benefit from showing of Tom’s "Why Choose NPAP" promotional video. We have learned that: • Most applicants (but not all) are born from contact with those already affiliated with NPAP (members and candidates). • Applicants expect their training institute to “look like them.” • Underserved applicants will need financial support to help us transform into an organization that looks more like the larger community.

NPAP is on its way to becoming a HIPAA entity. Required candidate forms will be filled out and submitted online. This will be time saving for candidates and staff alike. Rollout is expected in January.

The committee sadly said ‘Goodbye’ to its MITO Representative, Monique Rinere in August and ‘Hello’ to its new MITO Rep, Kathryn Harrison, in September. Kathryn has become an important voice on the committee.

When we closed our offices and our TRCC world became topsy turvy, we needed volunteers to help us with our now remote patient intakes.
