History of APS

Inception: The American Psychosomatic Society grew from a desire among several academicians, practitioners and foundations to link developments in psychology and psychiatry to internal medicine, physiology and other disciplines.
In 1936, Mrs. Kate Macy Ladd, the philanthropist and founder of the Josiah Macy, Jr., Foundation, directed the Foundation to provide support for the fledgling field of psychosomatic investigation. The initial project, undertaken by the New York Academy of Medicine's joint committee on Religion and Medicine, was to assemble a bibliography of the "psychosomatic" medical literature, 1910-1933, together with publications examining the relationship of religion to health. Dr. Helen Flanders Dunbar, director of the joint committee, undertook the task. The first volume was published in 1935 as Emotions and Bodily Changes. Two further revisions brought the literature surveys up to 1945.
Journal: With further financial assistance from the Macy Foundation, the National Research Council's Division of Anthropology and Psychology, Committee on Problems of Neurotic Behavior began publication of the journal, Psychosomatic Medicine, in an effort to encourage collaboration among the medical specialties, psychology and the social sciences. Its first issue appeared in 1939 under the editorship of Dr. Dunbar. Thereafter, research in the field expanded rapidly, but there was no permanent forum other than the Journal for the exchange of data and ideas. Accordingly, in December 1942, the advisory board of the Journal voted to establish the "American Society for Research in Psychosomatic Problems".
As the official publication of the Society, Psychosomatic Medicine: Journal of Biobehavioral Medicine, publishes experimental and clinical studies dealing with various aspects of the relationships among social, psychological, and behavioral factors and bodily processes in humans and animals. It is an international, interdisciplinary journal devoted to experimental and clinical investigation in behavioral biology, psychiatry, psychology, physiology, anthropology, and clinical medicine. The print journal is published nine times a year; most articles are published online ahead of print. Today, Psychosomatic Medicine is published nine times a year. Former editors of include Drs. Carl Binger, Morton F. Reiser, Herbert Weiner, Donald Oken, Joel Dimsdale and David S. Sheps and the current editor is Willem Kop.
Society Founders: Gathered at the organizing December 1942 meeting were representatives of the several centers where psychosomatic research was under way, including Drs. George Daniels, George Draper and Helen Dunbar, Columbia-Presbyterian; Drs. Stanley Cobb, Hallowell Davis, Alexander Forbes, Walter B. Cannon and Eric Lindeman from Harvard; Dr. Harold G. Wolff and colleagues at Cornell-New York Hospital; and Dr. Edward Weiss and colleagues from Temple University in Philadelphia who, with Dr. O. Spurgeon English, delineated the "field" in 1943 in their textbook, Psychosomatic Medicine.
Council: The first meeting of the Council was held on May 11, 1943, at the Hotel Statler in Detroit under the honorary presidency of Dr. Adolf Meyer. At the meeting, Dr. Tracy Putnam was elected the first president of the Society, Dr. Winfred Overholser, president-elect and Dr. Edwin G. Zabriski, secretary-treasurer. Today, the Council includes a President, President-Elect, Past President, Secretary-Treasurer and five at-large members who are elected to provide diverse perspectives, including, but not limited to, diversity in discipline, gender, geography, and ethnicity.

The first scientific meeting was held jointly with the annual meeting of the American Psychiatric Association in 1943, and in conjunction with the AMA meeting in New York in 1944. That year, the Society was incorporated under the laws of New York State and control of the Journal was shifted from the National Research Council to the Society. Beginning in 1946, the annual meetings were held independently of other organizations. In 1948, the Society's name was changed from "American Society for Research in Psychosomatic Problems" to "The American Psychosomatic Society."

Today, the Annual Meeting in March is an open scientific and clinical forum where investigators from allied disciplines communicate, pool their knowledge, consider problems of conceptual relationships, and develop ideas that will stimulate further research. Typically, the three-day meeting is devoted to the presentation of scientific papers, symposia, workshops, poster sessions, invited lectures and addresses. Roundtable luncheon discussions, as well as business meetings for the Society's membership and Council, and the Journal's editorial board are included. An annual banquet closes the meeting on Saturday evening.

Program Committee

The Program Committee is responsible for developing the academic portions of the Annual Meeting held for 3 to 4 days each March. The Program Committee's mission is primarily to ensure that the scientific programming of the meeting is of high interest to the membership and of high quality. The Program Committee also serves the strategic goals of the Society, including diversity, mentoring, dissemination, and liaison. Whereas scientific quality is the overarching goal of the Committee, targeted programming and activities may also promote: the study of diversity as it pertains to psychosomatic science; ethnic diversity among the membership; consciousness of the Society among leading scientists who are not already members; accessibility of information about the meeting to the membership and the public at large; and a sense among trainees that the Society should be their scientific "home". These goals are achieved democratically via discussion among the members of the Committee, votes by the Committee, and/or blinded peer review.

ad hoc Scientific Initiative Committee

The goal of the ad hoc Scientific Initiative Committee is to identify emerging scientific trends in the field and to recommend specific new science initiatives for APS to undertake. Scientific initiatives constitute time-limited foci that might lead to special meetings, annual meeting content, a special issue or series of the journal, thematic continuing education offerings, formation of Special Interest Groups, or some combination thereof. For example, the recent Affect Science scientific initiative theme was adopted in 2015, which led to a midyear meeting among other outcomes. The APS strategic plan includes provision for new scientific initiatives every 3-5 years. To learn more about the ad hoc Scientific Initiative Committee, please contact Julian Thayer at

Special Interest Groups

Emerging Leaders Initiative

The Emerging Leaders Initiative (ELI) is a diverse and vibrant group of early career members and trainees in psychosomatic medicine. The mission of the ELI is twofold: 1) to promote the development of early career members and trainees as scholars and leaders in psychosomatic medicine; and 2) to advance APS' research, clinical, and membership goals. The ELI has the following overarching goals to support its mission:

  1. To provide leadership, service, and professional development opportunities that will positively impact the research and clinical trajectories of APS early career members and trainees, ultimately helping them to become effective leaders and collaborators in their own fields and within APS.
  2. To be active contributors in APS by serving on committees and working on and developing new committee-driven and ELI-driven initiatives, ultimately helping to advance APS' research, clinical, and membership goals.

Previously, the ELI has reviewed educational materials and resources to be posted on the website; video recorded and edited conference presentations; and assisted with conference programming. In the future, ELI is looking to continue to engage early career members and trainees, including travel scholarship winners; help increase APS's presence on social media to promote members and highlight relevant news; and continue to create conference programming beneficial to early career members and trainees.

To learn more about or to join the Emerging Leaders Initiative, please contact the current co-chair(s) at

Sexual Minority Health

The purpose of the Special Interest Group in Sexual Minority Health is to promote interactions among lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer members and their allies in the American Psychosomatic Society for the promotion of collaborations on LGBTQ-related health research to deepen our understanding of sexual minority Health Status Throughout the Life Course.

Robert-Paul Juster, PhD, Chair

Developmental Origins of Health and Disease

Over the past 5 years or so, an increasing number of researchers attending APS have been presenting their work on early life factors affecting developmental and health outcomes. Worldwide, interest in the topic of the developmental origins of health and disease is growing, with an increasing number of publications on this topic and an increasing number of journals and societies specifically dedicated to this topic. APS members are in a unique position to contribute to this area of research both by virtue of their overall guiding interest in health outcomes and in their diverse set of skills and interests related to the role of early adversity in health and disease outcomes.

Gerry Giesbrecht, PhD, Chair

Diversity Initiative

The mission of the Diversity Initiative Group is building success through inclusion. We intend to facilitate cross-cultural interactions which promote the APS mission and to attract scientifically minded individuals from diverse cultures recognizing their unique contributions.

(1) To celebrate, not just tolerate, the inclusion of multicultural scientific activities geared toward suppressing health disparities.
(2) Participating in networking opportunities to build effective collaboration with other minority and international organizations

Danielle L. Beatty Moody, PhD , Chair (2022)

Committee Members

Past Leaders Special Interest Group

This group of previous leaders of the Society provides important perspectives about many relevant issues, including the current state and direction of the Society, its potential future goals, how it might relate to other professional groups. There is at least one Past Leader on the Program Committee, and Past Leaders are encouraged to participate on each of the APS committees. The Past Leaders Special Interest Group meets at a dinner during the Annual Meeting, convenes by conference call at least twice each year, and engages in other business, such as nominating individuals for APS awards, or communicating about specific activities by email and use of the APS website.

Affect Science in Medicine

This initiative seeks to promote scientific excellence in an area considered foundational for psychosomatic medicine while further enhancing the clinical relevance of our research.

Many advances have been made in affect science in recent years that are relevant to our field, but the translation to biomedical research and clinical application is in its infancy.

Six topic areas have been identified:

  • Early life adversity and emotions
  • Physiological manifestations of emotions
  • Implicit measures of affect
  • Bidirectional brain-body interactions
  • Maladaptive emotion regulation
  • Emotion in social relationships

A major goal of this SIG is to generate a separate white paper on each topic.

Each white paper will take stock of current knowledge and methods and address the research agenda for the foreseeable future regarding both basic science and clinical applications.
