«THE PLEASURE PRINICPLE… AND BEYOND»
The Fifth Annual School of the EPI
28th July – 3rd of August 2019, Paris
We are very pleased to confirm that the EPI fifth “integration” annual School “The Pleasure Principle… and Beyond” will be taking place in Paris from the 28 th July (arrival) till 3rd of August (departure) 2019. This School is being organized by the European Psychoanalytical Institute together with the Paris Psychoanalytical Society (La Société Psychanalytique de Paris – S.P.P) in collaboration with the French Psychoanalytical Society (L’Association Psychanalytique de France – A.P.F.) and the Psychoanalytic Society of Research and Education (La Société Psychanalytique de Recherche et de Formation – S.P.R.F.).
The theme “The Pleasure Principle… and Beyond” will be tackled from different perspectives by the invited speakers and discussants. We believe the School with the everyday plenary lectures and invited discussions, small clinical groups, workshops, a film screening and discussion, as well as other interesting social events will become an remarkable further step in building bridges and maintaining constructive dialogue between different psychoanalytic cultures. It will be an excellent opportunity for exchange, debates and for learning about and from a deeply rooted in history and dynamically developing psychoanalytic culture of contemporary France and, of course, of learning from each other, from our differences as well as from our shared ideas and grounds.
This year the TSR-D seminar (only for EPI candidates belonging the TSR-D class) will be organized before the core School-program on the 27th/28th of July, 2019.
There will be also a special evening program on Child and Adolescent psychoanalysis for the preregistered class of the trainees.
The registration will be open in due time. As usually we anticipate a heavy demand for places from potentially interested participants belonging to different European Societies and Study Groups. For this reason and also because the annual School is now the only meeting point for the EPI candidates, registered analysands and members with the Institute’s board and faculty you are strongly recommended not only to reserve the dates, but also to book your place quickly after you receive the information letter from the School’s organizing committee.
