Call for Papers
The first four-section conference of the EFPP (together with the DGPT, DPG, DPV, DGAP, DGIP, VAKJP, D3G, BVPPF) will take place in Berlin, Germany, from June 26th to 28th, 2015. The theme will be BEYOND BABEL? ON SAMENESS AND OTHERNESS.
You are invited to participate in a reflection and discussion of an old and yet modern topic. Babel still stands as a synonym for exile, slavery, godless- and sinfulness. Challenging questions may arise from it. Have we overcome Babel? How are we dealing with communication and its difficulties, the confusion of tongues and loss of common ground within our community? All this inevitably relates to the confusion and feared loss of values which are a main part of our daily work as psychoanalytic psychotherapists. June 26th - 28th, 2015, Berlin, Germany.

Conference: 'Gold' discovered at the University of Giessen. Psychoanalytic psychotherapy has been found to be effective for multiple presenting mental disorders across multiple randomised controlled trials – the form of evidence that NICE considers ‘gold standard’. One of the world’s leading experts in meta-analysis, Professor Falk Leichsenring, a psychologist and psychoanalyst who advises the German authority that is responsible for provision of psychotherapy in their public health system, will be delivering this year’s Phil Richardson Memorial Lecture at the 20 September AGM of the Association for Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy in the NHS. ‘Body of Evidence’ will review what we can confidently now claim about psychodynamic treatments that have been shown to work, followed by a discussion about how we can use this evidence to persuade the new commissioning bodies to invest in NHS-funded services. The APP event, which is open to everyone, with limited free places available for students and service users, will be held at Cavendish Conference Centre, London W1. Please contact  Janaki Hemaratne at app-nhs@btconnect.com for further information about this event. You can read the full meta-analysis on British Journal of Psychiatry website at http://bjp.rcpsych.org/content/199/1/15.full

Conference: Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy NOW 2013. Getting to grips with society’s ills: a psychoanalytic perspective. Bridging the clinical and academic study of psychoanalysis with political discourse and social policy. London Bloomsbury, 5 October. This year’s conference considers the changing political landscape in the UK: the Government dramatically changing the welfare state and social contract, with increased use of language such as ‘strivers’ and ‘shirkers’. Coupled with a rise in reality TV and a cult of celebrity, we seem to be living in an increasingly individualistic and narcissistic society. Picking up on a range of contemporary themes – such as individualism, consumerism and a decline of community, families and young people, inequality and poverty, and the increasing marginalization of some sections of the community – Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy NOW 2013 will explore ways of getting to grips with society’s ills using our unique psychoanalytic perspective, and how psychoanalytic thinking can inform and support the Government and policy makers in their responses. Keynote Presentation by Salman Akhtar, Professor of Psychiatry and Human Behavior, Thomas Jefferson University, Philadelphia. Speakers and facilitators: Susanna Abse, Salman Akhtar, Andrew Balfour, Nick Benefield, Marion Brown, Andrew Cooper, Tim Dartington, Sandra Evans, Gary Fereday, Richard Graham, Rex Haigh, Paul Hoggett, James Johnston, Jean Knox, Alessandra Lemma, Julian Lousada, Frank Lowe, Gary McKnight, Helen Morgan, Anna Motz, Matthew Patrick, Patrick Pietroni, Rosemary Rizq, Mary Target, Matthew Taylor, David Vincent, Gary Winship, Heather Wood, Jessica Yakeley, Biddy Youell. Plus special public lecture on Friday 4 October by Iain McGilchrist, author of The Master and His Emissary. With Jim Hopkins, Jean Knox, Rowan Williams.
