We are pleased to announce that the first International Psychoanalytic
Family Therapy Congress will be held in Paris from May 14th to 16th 2004.
This congress will bring together international experts from different
countries to discuss their findings on individual transformations within
the family, their psychopathological consequences and the corresponding
Family metamorphoses also relate to general changes within the family,
the mould in which the existence of its members is constructed, and we
shall also speak about the metamorphoses that are induced by PCFT (psychoanalitic
couple and family therapies). The field of applications of PCFT continues
to grow year by year thanks to the adaptation that it introduces into
its own model.
Fundamental questions will be raised during this Congress. In what ways
do families suffer? What are the constant aspects upon which families
rely to attain their objectives? What are the most recent findings concerning
the family link theory? What is the work in progress on all family related
Our goal is to maximize the exchange of information and contacts between
presenters and participants at this congress. Therefore workshops, Q&A
sessions and round tables will be favoured. We hope that new research
proposals will emerge and that our clinical tool will be sharpened. Family
Therapists, Psychologists, Psychoanalysts as well as actors in the social
field are concerned by this event, which highlights the role of the family
in our life.

of abstracts to send with registration form
Participants are kindly invited to submit abstracts for presentation in
Congress on one of the proposed themes in one of the official languages.
The presentation must concern a recent original study or research (not
more three years old) and not have been published.
Deadline is January 5th 2004. The Scientific Committee will review all
the abstracts, decide which presentations are be included in the programme
and in what form: conference, round table, debate, workshop or forum.
Authors of abstracts will be notified on advice of Committee.
The text must include the title of the presentation, the surname and first
name of the author(s), the institution, university, association, address
of the author(s) and the language of oral presentation. The length must
be less than 1500 characters. So that quality and originality of the work
can be fully evaluated, the presentation should be centred on a single
line of study, objectives and results should be clearly described, and
preferably illustrated by examples of psychoanalytic family or couple
Submission of an abstract does not constitute a registration for the Congress.
Please complete the separate registration form. Final acceptance of submissions
is therefore on condition that the author is registered for participation
at the Congress.
In order to promote exchanges between presenters and participants, presentations
must be short: 20 minutes for conferences and workshops (6 pages, each
of 1500 characters), 10 minutes for round tables and forums (3 pages,
each of 1500 characters).
For complementary instructions : www.psychanalyse-famille.org
We hope that the Congress "Family metamorphoses" will allow
participants to enter into topics in more depth, and also to promote further
discussions between participants.
Therefore each day will be centered on one of the defined main lines:
the modern clinic (Friday 14th), metapsychology today (Saturday 16th),
and changes in techniques (Sunday 17th).
Conferences will commence with the main line of the day. 1-hour long round-tables
consisting of three or four presenters will complete the morning schedule.
On Friday and Saturday, the first hour of the afternoon will be dedicated
to 2 or 3 simultaneous debates : two specialists will confront each other
on a particularly controversial subject in the presence of a mediator.
Simultaneous workshops will be held during the second part of the afternoon.
Their subjects may be illustrated by clinical examples of PFT or PCT.
Running alongside these, different forums will take place - concerning
one of the themes of the Congress - in the presence of 3 or 4 presenters
and a mediator.
On Sunday morning there will be a round-table which will comprise of collecting
the main contributions of previous exchanges during the Congress, and
