Call for Papers, Submissions

This conference will bring together an international gathering of clinicians, researchers, and academics to discuss and debate the present-day relevance of Ferenczi’s ideas and work.

The themes of the conference, Introjection and Transmission; Trauma, Fragmentation and Narrative; and Innovations in the Clinical Encounter: Elasticity, Relaxation and Mutuality, are indicative of the breadth of Ferenczi’s creative psychoanalytic thinking and research. On these broad themes, contributors and audience are invited to add their own creative narratives based on collegial discourse with colleagues in a Ferenczian Psychoanalytic Renaissance.
