In this role, Dr. Gross has made sure APsaA has an effective presence in the halls of Congress, advocating for legislation crucial to psychoanalysis and mental health care.

“Herb’s contribution has been invaluable as he fights the good fight for the uniqueness and subjectivity of all people, keeping a psychoanalytic view alive on Capitol Hill,” said Mark Smaller, PhD, head of APsaA's Public Advocacy Committee.

Dr. Gross has also served multiple terms on the APsaA board and has greatly contributed to many facets of APsaA’s work over the years.

The leadership and membership of The American Psychoanalytic Association join together to thank Dr. Gross for his outstanding service.
