The IJP Centenary Conference:
Celebrating 100 years of The International Journal of Psychoanalysis

The London Centenary Conference will take place at the Tower Hotel, a 4 Star hotel close to the famous Tower Bridge, St Katharine’s Docks and alongside the World Heritage Site, the Tower of London. The English capital boasts myriad historical sites, art galleries, world-class restaurants and eateries, high fashion outlets, and cultural events. 

Over the 20th and 21st of July 2019 we will explore what foundational features make up the essence of psychoanalysis and look at our take on them in the early part of the 21st century. Some of the most renowned contemporary analysts will join us in celebrating The International Journal of Psychoanalysis and the unique history that it holds.

Registration open!

“… Psycho-Analysis does not stay at abstractly affirming the two theses so painful to Narcissism — the psychical significance of sexuality and the unconsciousness of mental life — but rather proves them by means of a material that touches every individual personally and forces him to face these problems.”

Centred on these foundational features which make up the essence of psychoanalysis and looking at our take on them in the early part of the 21st century, we will explore what it means to encounter the unconscious with three major conferences in New York, Buenos Aires and London.

You are cordially invited to join us for this significant moment in the history of The International Journal of Psychoanalysis.
