Nordic Psychoanalytic Congress 2022

The Danish Psychoanalytical Society is pleased to invite you to the 27th Nordic Psychoanalytical Congress on 11 - 14 August, 2022.

The theme of the congress is “The foreign”. This term captures many essential aspects of psychoanalysis both as a science and as an art of different theoretical approaches. It also embodies different modes of understanding of clinical work and can contribute to the understanding of the socio-cultural unconscious dynamics of both groups and subgroups.
