Symposium Theme: Perspectives on polarities: thinking below the surface
Join us to explore the polarities of today's organizations and the society in which they are embedded, both on and below the surface.
The annual ISPSO Symposium will be held from June 24th to 30th 2019.
Call for Papers:
We live in a world in which ways of thinking and acting, and our identifications with them, are more and more polarized. Possibilities for holding more than one point of view are challenged, encouraging splitting and conformity. Such polarities accentuate the isolation of individuals and accelerate distance between groups, and can result in rigid and intractable group purpose and association, making coexistence more difficult and impeding our ability to navigate in an increasingly connected and interdependent world.
We invite paper proposals that explore the polarities of today’s organizations and the society in which they are embedded, both on and below the surface. Possible relevant areas of interest may include a psychoanalytic view of: The value and feasibility of social safety nets; racial relations; government and governing; immigration and national identity; economic inequality; gender and sexual identity; health insurance; and leadership. This is not intended to be an exhaustive list.
Paper proposals should be about 500 words related to the theme of the conference. Each parallel presentation will be allotted approximately seventy-five (75) minutes in the program, to include a formal presentation and discussion with participants.
Please note that it is expected that authors of proposals that are accepted will complete the application for Continued Education (CE) credits. Details will be provided upon notification of acceptance. If you have any questions about CE credits or the application process, contact Jeff Axelbank at email@example.com
Proposals should be submitted by January 4, 2019.
You will be notified if your proposal is selected for the conference in March 2019.
All proposals should be sent to Ken Eisold at firstname.lastname@example.org
Members of the planning committee that will evaluate proposals include:
Kenneth Eisold, Paper Selection Chair
Call for Institute Proposals:
The 2019 ISPSO Institute (Formerly known as Professional Development Workshops)
June 24th to 26th 2019
The first three days of the ISPSO’s annual meeting are dedicated to professional development workshops that are designed to provide members and non-members an opportunity to learn and develop from other professionals. The workshops should appeal to any member and non-member, regardless of profession. These workshops should offer:
- Knowledge, skills and/or practices in psychoanalytic understanding and/or application to organizations
- Opportunities to think and learn about organizations in new ways
- Other approaches to psychoanalytic organizational work.
We especially invite proposals that explore the conference theme on polarities of today’s organizations and the society in which they are embedded, both on and below the surface. Proposals may be about any aspect of psychoanalytic organizational work. Institute workshop proposals should be about 500 words and include workshop length and any technology or other special needs (flipcharts, screens, room arrangements, etc.). A workshop could be a half-day, full day or two-days and include presentations, experiential and case work, participant discussions, and personal development and application. Please specify in the proposal the level of experience and knowledge the workshop offers (beginner, intermediate, advanced, or all levels).
Please note that it is expected that authors of Institute proposals that are accepted will complete the application for Continued Education (CE) credits. Details will be provided upon notification of acceptance. If you have any questions about CE credits or the application process, contact Jeff Axelbank at email@example.com
Institute facilitators receive a small stipend and will be provided accommodations for one or two nights, depending on the length of the workshop.
