About the Alliance

Volunteer with the Alliance

Teach a Class

The Alliance is looking for members interested in teaching a class in 2024-2025. Fees are set by instructors with NWAPS taking a small portion to cover administrative costs. If you are interested in teaching, please reach out to Education Chair Maria Klots at education@nwaps.org. She’ll answer any questions and walk you through the steps to get started.

2025 Forum TBA

If you loved our 2024 event on "Power and Innocence" and are interested in planning for our 2025 Forum, please reach out to Caleb Dodson at forum@nwaps.org. Volunteers receive a significant discount to the Forum and have the opportunity to meet some cool colleagues!

Distinguished Speakers

If you would love an excuse to regularly network with current influential psychoanalytic thinkers, writers, and clinicians, you may enjoying volunteering for the Distinguished Speakers committee! Email distinguished-speakers@nwaps.org for more information!


We are in the process of forming a DEI-focused committee that will guide the Alliance in both self-reflective work within our organization, as well as focusing on outreach to our members and the wider community. If you have a passion for the intersection of psychoanalytic therapy and social justice, we would love to hear from you. Email info@nwaps.org and we'll get you connected.

General Volunteer Needs

If you are generally interested in becoming involved, even if you're not sure where your interests and skills may fit, we would love to hear from you! Please reach out to our membership chair Jessi Johns at membership@nwaps.org.
