Reaching Across the Divide: Bringing a Psychoanalytic Sensibility
to Culture and Practice

Dates: November 9-12, 2023
Location: Chicago, Illinois

At this conference, we will explore what we are experiencing inside and outside our consulting rooms. “Divisiveness” seems more prominent today than at other times in history. Is it no greater but rather less hidden today? How are we to hear the other and bridge the gaps that we encounter? From its focus on internal conflict to the ways in which we understand and face difference, psychoanalytic thinking has much to say about the topic of divisiveness. Join us as we discuss the theory and therapeutic stance of responding to divisions, as they relate to the issues that are presented to us in our practices, in our communities, and in the world.
