International Forum for Psychoanalytic Education
University of Toronto, Toronto, Ontario, Canada, October 17 – 19, 2019
Psychoanalysis has always been interested in borders. We explore the space between consciousness and unconsciousness; the self and other; id, ego, and superego; phantasy and reality; psyche and soma; inside and outside; the individual, the family and the collective. We recognize both the salutary aspects of borders as when we talk about separation and individuation and the more threatening ones as in cases of traumatic violation. The consultation room can be thought of as another border where questions of boundaries and crossing of lines are played out.
In this conference we invite you to use a broad psychoanalytic lens through multiple registers, including the office space, body, geography, media, politics and art.
As IFPE crosses the border, and returns to beautiful Toronto, we welcome your proposals on the theme of borders.
