Website and Membership Database Update

* We are in the process of upgrading the AAPCSW website and membership database! This is largely a behind-the-scenes effort that should improve our members' experience and administrative efficiencies.

While this is exciting news, we recognize there may be some initial inconvenience as we all adjust to a new user interface. Please be patient with us as we figure out how to navigate the new system together.

As always, Barbara Matos is available to help resolve any difficulties by email, barbara.matos@aapcsw.org.

Please be in touch if you have thoughts or questions. And thank you again for your patience.

Co-Presidents, AAPCSW

Position Statements

March 29, 2021

The AAPCSW Board commissioned its Diversity and Social Action Committee to create the following statement:

March 16, 2021 — Atlanta Murders

As members of the American Association for Psychoanalysis in Clinical Social Work (AAPCSW) and in solidarity with our Asian, Asian-American, and Pacific Islander (AAPI) fellow citizens, we express our deep sorrow over the horror of the Atlanta murders on March 16, 2021 and extend our condolences to the families of the victims and the communities affected by this tragedy.

We are alarmed at the rapid acceleration of hate crimes against AAPI communities; unfortunately, this violence is not new.

The AAPCSW Board commissioned its Diversity and Social Action Committee to create the following statement:

JANUARY 6, 2021

On Wednesday, January 6, 2021, the President of the United States, Donald Trump, led an insurrection that resulted in violence, destruction, and death, an attack on the very institution that symbolizes our United States' democracy. Weaponized mobs crashed through the US Capitol doors, waving Confederate flags and other symbols of white-supremacy, vandalized offices, and terrorized our congressional leaders and their staff.

The American Association for Psychoanalysis in Clinical Social Work (AAPCSW) believes that Donald Trump's presidential powers must be immediately revoked. He has demonstrated an exploitation of such powers through the consistent promotion of racist groups and ideologies. His empowerment of those denigrating the disenfranchised “Other” is dangerous to the United States in that it undermines the integrity for which a democracy strives.
