A virtual conference on psychoanalysis and the pandemic

This November, we will not be able to gather in our usual way in London. 

In previous years, our annual conferences have allowed us to come together in person to think in depth about central clinical issues. We want to find ways of continuing to work together. In the light of the unprecedented challenges of recent events, it feels vital to develop a psychoanalytic understanding of our reactions to the Covid-19 pandemic, including its impact on our capacity to work and to love. It could be for eventual good, not only for ill.  

Therefore, we are planning an online meeting. Speakers and chairs will include Fakhry Davids, Antonino Ferro, Peter Fonagy, Francesca Hume, Jane Milton, Rosine Perelberg, Caroline Polmear, David Taylor, Rudi Vermote and Beverly J. Stoute. David Tuckett will be in conversation with Mervyn King. There will be parallel paper sessions on the Saturday and clinical seminars on the Friday afternoon.
