Enlivening autistic withdrawals – a psychoanalytical perspective  


The Frances Tustin Memorial Trust and the Polish Society for Psychoanalytical Psychotherapy are pleased to invite you to participate in the VIII International Conference, which will be held on September 11-13, 2020 in Warsaw, Poland. This year the title of the conference is: "Enlivening autistic withdrawals – a psychoanalytical perspective".

We will focus on psychoanalytic thinking about Autism in its common understanding, and more specifically as an autistic state of mind. The conference will include i.a. lectures, clinical seminars, discussion panels, as well as presentations in small groups. The presented papers will be based on the clinical experience of the speakers obtained both from working with adults and children.

On the day before the event, i.e. on Thursday, September 10, there will be additional clinical and theoretical seminars conducted by psychoanalysts associated with the Frances Tustin Memorial Trust (the number of places is limited). All events will be translated into English and Polish. The exact program and profiles of our speakers can be found on the conference website.

We want this event to provide more than only intellectual satisfaction, which is why a jazz concert is planned for all participants on Friday, September 11. On Saturday, September 12, there is the possibility of attending a gala dinner which will also include an interesting musical setting.
