We want to communicate our solidarity with our Members, the Ferenczi community and all visitors of this website, as we continue to monitor the impacts of pandemic of COVID-19. We are in this together and we want you to be informed about the evolving plans of the ISFN.
We are postponing the 2021 International Ferenczi Conference in São Paolo, Brazil.
We hope to offer our next Conference in the spring/fall of 2022. We are grateful to our Brazilian Colleagues who have been hard at work planning the upcoming conference. We will be communicating with you as plans unfold, and we look forward to meeting you in person when the time is right.
We come from many different cultures and communities, different political and economic situations, all tested and stretched to extreme places. We are aware of people working on the front lines handling and containing this virus. We will all know people who are ill or dying, who are frightened and reacting to trauma and unknown outcomes.
We remember that Ferenczi, in whose spirit and memory we developed this organization, was attentive to trauma, to the social dimension of traumatic experience. And we hope to function in his spirit.
We are hoping to create and sustain an ongoing environment of concern and solidarity and mutual help and support with the help of our website. In addition, each ISFN member will be contacted and we promise to stay in touch.
