CIPS | Origins (part 2), 10 Feb 2015 [cached]
Subsequent "Biennial CIPS Clinical Conferences" were held at the Mohonk Mountain House in New York State in 1999 (Nussenbaum, 2001), at the La Mancha Resort, in Palm Springs, California in 2002 (Kelly, 2003), in Rye, New York in 2004, and in Los Angeles in 2006 (Hall, 2006; Perlman, 2006c). (Pictures from the Los Angeles conference are on the CIPS website).
Some Consortium leaders subsequently explained that the IPS was excluded because its members were already represented by NMCOP and Division 39, an argument based on false premises since the IPS includes practitioners from other disciplines who are not members of other psychoanalytic groups (see Basseches and Perlman, 2005).
In July 2000, a second law for psychoanalysts was enacted in the more populous state of New Jersey, and in December 2002, a full licensing law was enacted in New York (Perlman, 2004a). NAAP's legislative agenda had attracted little attention from psychoanalysts or psychoanalytic organizations.
The committee, which was structured to include West Coast and East Coast branches, was charged with development of a strategy to address the adverse consequences of the licensing law in New York, and to prevent any NAAP legislative action in California (Perlman, 2004b).
The committee, which included Jim Gooch (PCC), Beth Kalish Weiss (LAISPS), Ernie Lawrence (LAISPS), Terrence McBride (LAISPS), Fredric Perlman (IPTAR) and herself met monthly, while a second group, including Harriet and Ernie, as well as Robert Wood, a candidate at IPTAR, worked in parallel to draft new bylaws to reflect the emerging recommendations of the Mission and Structure Committee.
The Public Policy committee, which then included Helen Gediman, Fredric Perlman, Phyllis Sloate, Steve Ellman, and Allan Frosch on the East coast, as well as Diane Garcia, Jim Gooch, Ernie Lawrence, Beth Kalish-Weiss, and Terrence McBride on the West coast, began its work immediately.
In addition, a "state-level" legislative strategy was also developed, aimed at influencing the legislative and regulatory process (Perlman and Kalish-Weiss, 2005).
With the approval of the full Public Policy Committee, Fredric Perlman arranged a meeting in London with Don Campbell, Secretary General of the IPA, and Ronald Britton, president of the British Pychoanalytic Society, to describe the crisis in American psychoanalysis and discuss the FIPA proposal.
A presentation by Fredric Perlman on the crisis in New York, an impassioned argument on behalf of the proposal by Jim Gooch, and strong supporting arguments by APsaA representative Robert Pyles, however, occasioned a more thoughtful review of the proposal.
A committee, chaired by Robert Pyles and co-chaired by Fredric Perlman, was set up to plan implementation of the FIPA credential, and In 2005, following protracted efforts to resolve some thorny organizational complications created by the new credential, the "Fellow of the IPA" credential was officially implemented.
When a first set of weak regulations was published for public comment, the lobbying efforts of the coalition prompted the state to withdraw them for revision (Perlman, 2004b), but a second set of regulations, published some months later, was only marginally better than the first. With only minor modifications, this second set of regulations was approved by the State.
The Public Policy Committee encouraged further action. Steven Ellman, then president of IPTAR, and Fredric Perlman, CIPS Public Policy Chair, invited the presidents of major local psychoanalytic societies to a series of meetings to plan a response to the new regulations and the imminent implementation of the law.
During Harriet's two-term tenure as NAPsaC chair (2005-2009), the NAPsaC board would go on to initiate three important new projects: two websites, proposed by Fredric Perlman, and a new initiative, proposed to the board by Harriet, to establish a program of ongoing NAPsaC "Working Parties."
A second website, also proposed by Perlman of CIPS and still in development, is designed to serve as an on-line bulletin board and national events calendar for NAPsaC members.
Some argued that only an interdisciplinary professional organization, composed exclusively of psychoanalysts, and whose common interest was the protection of psychoanalysis, could be trusted to safeguard the profession (Perlman, 2006a, 2006b).
Harriet Basseches and Fredric Perlman arranged to meet with the Consortium board in the spring of 2005 to discuss CIPS concerns.
In a formal letter declining the invitation to join the Consortium, CIPS cited the existence of significant policy differences between the two organizations and, at the same time, offered to work together with the Consortium on issues and initiatives whenever our interests converge (Basseches and Perlman, 2005).
