    The ABPsa Board recently approved a Fellow Emeritus status. This new registration category was created in response to Fellows’ desires to maintain their ABPsa registry listing upon retirement and to support the value of standards. Fellow Emeritus status is available to ABPsa Fellows who, regardless of whether they remain licensed in their mental health discipline, have and remain completely retired from the practice of psychoanalysis, as well as any other psychotherapeutic activity, with patients. Their licenses and other professional affiliations must be in good standing upon retirement and remain so.  The American Board of Psychoanalysis does not certify Fellow Emeritus in the active practice of psychoanalysis.

    Eligible fellows can apply for the Fellow Emeritus status by completing an application and submitting a one-time fee.  Further details and the Fellow Emeritus application is available on our website www.abpsa.org.
