EPF Statement on the war in Ukraine

The EPF Executive is deeply shocked and concerned about the invasion by the Russian army and the war it has started in Ukraine, a free and independent country in the middle of Europe. We are concerned for the lives and physical and mental health of all the people affected in this humanitarian catastrophe, in which even a children's clinic and a clinic for expectant and birthing mothers are now being shelled and destroyed. These attacks on innocent people are an expression of a loss of all humanity. We demand and we hope for an immediate end to the war and the establishment of peace. 

On behalf of the EPF Executive

Dr Heribert Blass  EPF President

The EPF House

Brussels, Belgium

The EPF house, the entrance with its bar and one of the conference rooms

Since late 2015 the EPF has its own house, situated on Rue Gérard in Brussels. The House is open to all members and candidates of EPF societies.


The EPF House has been opened again

From September 2021 the events at the EPF House have been resumed, and we are very happy to return to in-person meetings. However, the recommendation for all participants  of the EPF House events is that they should be informed about measures applicable in the Brussels region:



Fédération Européenne de Psychanalyse
European Psychoanalytical Federation
Europäische Psychoanalytische Föderation

The task of the European Psychoanalytical Federation is to function as an arena of exchange and an intellectual forum for all psychoanalytical societies of Europe. The European Psycho-Analytical Federation (EPF), the scientific federation of all European psychoanalytical Societies and Study Groups belonging to the International Psychoanalytical Association (IPA), has been in existence for more than 50 years. Today, it incorporates around 5.000 members coming from 36 Societies in 25 European countries in which more than 20 languages are spoken.
