About conference
Date: 6 - 8 decemer 2024
Place: Turkey, Istanbul

We would like to announce that the International Conference ‘Languages of Psychoanalysis: Creating Bonds’ will be held in December 2024 in Istanbul. This meeting allows everyone who loves psychoanalysis to take part in exchanging professional knowledge and experience through direct communication.

Some time ago transition to the Internet and practicing online were extraordinary and bold steps for specialists in the psychoanalytic community. Nowadays many people have dispersed to different countries and cities working behind the computer and phone screens. Needless to say that the internet has expanded our capabilities of communication and opened new horizons. Whereas in the past only few could embrace new technologies, now it is the demand of time and face-to-face offline meetings have become a rare and special treat. All of us have an opportunity to listen to topmost lecturers and communicate with each other due to online technologies, but there is a lack of something, even not always visible, that is born only through face-to-face communication.

That is why we, conference-planning committee: Edunote.info, Institute of Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis, Association of Private Practicing Psychotherapists and others are turning a new page in professional psychoanalytic community development and hope to hold the conference annually.

Aim of the conference: transmission of psychoanalytical skills and practices directly. In person. At one place.

We have chosen Istanbul as an international hub - a city where, thanks to direct flights and oriental hospitality, it is possible to meet people from different countries and far corners of the world. The place where East meets West provides us with opportunities to maintain old acquaintances and create new connections. We invite you to participate in the International Conference ‘Languages of Psychoanalysis: Creating Bonds’ where you can gain a new invaluable experience of both professional and informal interpersonal relations on December 6-7-8, 2024.

The conference will feature a two-day program of master classes, supervisions, and round tables. Here are some topics:
● Psychoanalysis: A Magnificent Century
● Psychoanalytic Neutrality: Myth or Reality
● Language and Identity in the Context of Psychoanalysis
● Attack on Ties: Not Just Bion
● Cultural Differences in Psychoanalysis: Analysts and Patients
● Masculine and Feminine in Psychoanalysis
● The Evolution of the Language of Psychoanalysis: from Freud to Modern Times and Other Topics
Moreover, the third day is a day when you can communicate informally and attend cultural mass events such as cruises along the Bosporus, excursions, sightseeing, and spend time among like-minded people.

The conference will bring together Andrey Ivanovich Kulikov, Natalya Mihaylovna Popova, Alexandre Nepomiachty and others.

We recommend those who want to get the most out of the trip to come earlier - there is a prepared program starting from Monday, December 2, where you can discover Istanbul: sightseeing, restaurants, shopping on bazaars with a guide, etc.
