The shape and use of psychoanalytic tools today

We are living in a fast-changing world, which challenges the
psychoanalytic ideals of reflection and time for thought. 
How do these changes affect the mind, our technique,
and our consulting rooms?

The tools and theories we use to attend those who seek psychoanalytic treatment are one of the main focuses of this Congress.  How have we developed?  Have we more to offer today than 50 or 100 years ago? How have new technologies and other changes influenced our practice, and how are we answering these various challenges? What are the further developments in technique and how do we deal with the impact of technology and high mobility in our practice? The clinical and theoretical presentations at this Congress will show how each analyst works through and thinks about these changes.    

There will be a new initiative at this Congress, the ‘Boston Groups’, where small, international groups of Members, Candidates and non-members will be able to meet before (online) and during the Congress to discuss the main Congress themes.  This will be an opportunity for you to participate more directly and actively in the Congress proceedings and to benefit from the extraordinary diversity of participants at IPA Congresses.
