The New Orleans-Birmingham Psychoanalytic Center will be able to initiate projects to study the effects of Hurricane Katrina on therapists/analysts thanks to a grant from the FAR Fund. This organization, which is based in New York, funds psychodynamically oriented projects in homelessness, youth violence, and other areas.

The center plans to create programming and research on how therapists/analysts have been affected personally and in their clinical practices by the trauma following Katrina. Major goals of the project are to foster a community of therapists who may be going through similar experiences and could benefit from the creation of "a collective analytic voice" about the trauma's aftermath and to develop analytically oriented programs addressed to the lay community's post-Katrina mental health concerns.▪
