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: NOW CLOSED

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 have invited 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.

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 jeff@jeffreyaxelbankpsyd.com

Submissions for AM2019 are now closed.

Members of the planning committee that will evaluate proposals include:

CALL FOR INSTITUTE PROPOSALS: NOW CLOSED

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 jeff@jeffreyaxelbankpsyd.com

Institute facilitators receive a small stipend and will be provided accommodations for one or two nights, depending on the length of the workshop.
