Crayton Rowe conducted a survey of NYC psychoanalytic training programs in 1975. The results showed that while social workers were the highest percentage of graduates, only a small number were teaching or supervising.
In May 1980 at a meeting of the Clinical Social Work Federation, Rowe founded the National Membership Committee on Psychoanalysis in Clinical Social Work. NMCOP remained a committee within the Federation for 10 years before becoming an independent corporation in 1990. Rosemarie Gaeta negotiated independence from the Federation in 1990 and became its first president. From the beginning, the aim of NMCOP was the achievement of parity with other mental health disciplines.
In March 2007, NMCOP changed its name to the American Association for Psychoanalysis in Clinical Social Work to better reflect its standing and purpose. With members from across the country, AAPCSW has gained recognition for its educational programs, standard setting, and advocacy on behalf of clinical social workers practicing psychoanalysis or from a psychoanalytic perspective.
