After many months of careful work, the Board of the International Sándor Ferenczi Network approved the editorial project of a new English edition of the complete works of Ferenczi, The Network Edition of the Complete Writings of Sándor Ferenczi. This project is consistent with the objectives of the International Sándor Ferenczi Network and a valuable and worthy development in the “Ferenczi renaissance.”
In order to make this ambitious project possible, the Board of the International Sándor Ferenczi Network is ready to start wide-ranging fund raising. Since this is a highly important and complex plan, the Board invites all the members of the International Sándor Ferenczi Network to express their opinion regarding this project at the Extraordinary Assembly of November 29, 2020, held via Zoom.

Our International Sándor Ferenczi Network developed out of 25 years of meetings, exchanges and discussions among a group of people who found the works of Sándor Ferenczi a source of profound inspiration.
We are not a professional organization. Most of us are practicing clinicians from diverse backgrounds and traditions, but there also general practitioners, historians, sociologists, philosophers, and humanists among us. We are an inclusive organization, and welcome all who are interested in an open dialogue and are willing to explore or develop further any of the many areas of knowledge, which belongs to the legacy of Ferenczi. We welcome as well membership applications of general practitioners who work along the lines developed by Ferenczi and Michael Balint, psychotherapists who integrate the body into the therapeutic process and all of those who work with traumatized people in various therapeutic settings. At the same time our main focus remains psychoanalysis but accepting the challenge that psychoanalysis has to adapt to our ever-changing society, the deep continuity in changes, and that our forum is enriched by diversity. We believe that the teachings of Ferenczi have the potential to reunite the dissecta membra of psychoanalysis, thus transforming the “Ferenczi Renaissance” into a Renaissance of psychoanalysis.
