“Psychoanalysis and the University” Panel in EPF Conference Turin 2014


The “Psychoanalysis and the University” IPA Committee: Past and Future Experience. 

Franco Borgogno (Italian Psychoanalytic Society) (Chair), Patrizia Giampieri-Deutsch (Vienna Psychoanalytic Society), Johannes Lehtonen  (Finnish Psychoanalytical Society), Marianne Leuzinger-Bohleber (German Psychoanalytical Association) will introduce the panel  and the discussion. 


Starting from reflecting on what we did in the past, what we would like to do in the future and what we realistically could do, the panel will consist of an open discussion with the colleagues interested in the problems connected to the survival of psychoanalysis at University. This is a needed reflection today in order to build the objectives and goals of the future work of the IPA “Psychoanalysis and the University” Committee. For promoting the discussion, two papers will be presented: Psychoanalysis and the University: From the “One-Man Army” (Alexander Mitscherlich) to an Outreaching Intergenerational, Interdisciplinary and Intergenerational Psychoanalysis by Martin Ruprecht and Michael Koenen (German Psychoanalytical Association) and Results from a preliminary overview of the presence and areas of interest in Italian Universities of members of the Italian Psychoanalytical Society by Luigi Solano (Italian Psychoanalytic Society).
