The Portuguese Psychoanalytic Society will be delighted to count with your presence and thoughts for a Cycle of Conferences, which is being organized for the year 2022, focusing on some of the most pressing issues of our Present World.

We live in a moment where we are submerged by external voices that echo in our internal world, taking us to a deep helplessness that we deal with in our clinical practice. 
The central theme is Violence, in its different configurations, perpetuated either at individual, family, institutional, social, political, and environmental levels. Reflecting on how each one of us, individually and/or as a participant in the larger group, ends up being a holder and transmitter of this violence, perpetuating a generational cycle where the marks of suffering appear again and again. And we ask ourselves: What violence are we talking about? How does it arise and continue? How do we find it in our clinical practice?
If Psychoanalysis has, throughout several generations, contributed to alleviate individual suffering, then it is also able to contribute to a multidisciplinary thinking that helps to provide a narrative that gives meaning and elucidates aspects of the social, cultural and political dynamics of the human world. We believe that change and transformation can emerge from knowledge. 
The following themes will be addressed:

  • "New" and "Old" Sexualities;
  • From Individual to Large Group, belonging to a dialectical cycle where the individual, small groups, and large communities form an identity system;
  • Identity issues in Large Groups and their own dynamics;
  • The effort to make the unrepresentable representable, as in the case of incest, war, the holocaust, and the destruction of the planet itself;
  • The strangeness of racist systems that are so permanently, subtly, and yet clearly embedded in our daily lives.

 

The SPP 2022 Conference Cycle - EXTERNAL VOICES & INTERNAL VOICES is open to the entire community.  So, if you are interested, just send us an email to sppsicanalise2013@gmail.com requesting your registration, and you will be sent the access link on the day of the Conference.
