A Partial List of Psychoanalytic Conferences

  • APsaA (American Psychoanalytic Association)'s Annual Meeting and National Meeting which are both annual, the Annual meeting being in the summer at varying locations and the National Meeting being in the winter in New York City.
  • Psychology and the Other
    • A bi-annual conference held in October of oddly-numbered years at which psychoanalysis is strongly represented. Nancy McWilliams, Donna Orange, and Roger Frie are just a few of the major analysts who presented at the conference in 2017.
    • What follows is the conference description from the website: "The mission of Psychology and the Other is to enrich responses and languages for human suffering, identity, and potential by promoting and facilitating interdisciplinary conversation between the disciplines of psychology, theology/religious studies, and philosophy. Eric Fromm bemoaned the divorce of psychology from philosophical and religious traditions and, in many ways, this artificial separation from our historical and conceptual siblings has only increased. The purpose of the Psychology and the Other is to provide venues that enrich conversations at the intersections of philosophy, psychology, and theological/religious studies, particularly emphasizing scholarship around the notion of the "Other." The term "Other" constitutes a shared space for continental thought, theology, and a variety of psychological discourses. This phenomenon bears significantly on ethical, epistemological, and phenomenological scholarship in each of these fields."
  • APCS: The Association for the Psychoanalysis of Culture and Society
  • Their annual conference is always held at Rutgers University in New Brunswick, NJ in October.
    • Here is a blurb about the APCS from their website: "The Association for the Psychoanalysis of Culture & Society (APCS) has been established to promote greater understanding of how cultural and social phenomena affect human subjectivity in ways that are socially significant and to promote new, more socially beneficial ways of applying psychoanalysis to social problems. The Association for the Psychoanalysis of Culture & Society is dedicated to both the diagnosis of the psychological ills underlying social problems and to the development of a psychoanalytic treatment of these ills at a collective level through cultural criticism, education, and other practices."
  • American Psychological Association (APA) Division 39 (Psychoanalysis) Spring Meeting:This is an annual meeting typically held in late April in varying locations.
