The Connecticut Society for Psychoanalytic Psychology

We are an interdisciplinary organization of  mental health professionals from Connecticut and neighboring states interested in psychoanalysis and psychoanalytic psychotherapy. Members include psychologists, social workers, psychiatrists, psychiatric nurses, other mental health professionals, graduate students, and non-clinical scholars. Any interested mental health professional is welcome to join us; no prior psychoanalytic training or experience is necessary. CSPP is the official Connecticut chapter of Section IV (local chapters) of Division 39 (Psychoanalysis) of the American Psychological Association (APA). Join us!

The mission of the Connecticut Society for Psychoanalytic Psychology is to promote and enhance the understanding and application of psychoanalytic thinking and practice. To this end, we provide educational opportunities, networking, and collegial support to our members and other interested professionals.


Dale Ortmeyer, PhD

The Board of CSPP was deeply saddened by the news that Dale Ortmeyer passed away on January 18, 2017. Dale was a founding member of CSPP. He served as our second president, from 1990-1992, and was a contributor to the Newsletter for many years. In 2001, Dale received CSPP's first Lifetime Achievement Award. Even while struggling in health, Dale remained committed to clinical and theoretical mentorship, as well as to CSPP. His presence on the Board, most recently as co-historian, contributed to our firm connection to the history of both the organization and the field. 

We wish to express our condolences to Dale's wife, Inge Ortmeyer, and to his family, friends, colleagues, and all who were fortunate enough to have been mentored by him.
