A Londra, il 9 novembre 2019, il Journal of Analytical Psychology & la SAP invitano alla Conferenza “Displacement – Contemporary Traumatic Experiences”.
The conference will explore the relationship between our selves and the environments we inhabit. Inner and outer
worlds are generally considered through different disciplines and fields of knowledge, but the experience of
refugees highlights the need to consider them simultaneously, in order to understand more clearly their deep
mutual influence. This complex ecosystem of relationships with our non-human environment applies to all of us.
We will look at how, and in what ways, displacement can be considered traumatic and disrupt our mental lives;
how this applies and can be worked with not only with refugees, but also with others in our therapeutic practices,
and in ourselves. We will explore the issues related to this foundational matrix in relation to migrants, refugees,
therapy, language, dreams, politics, family, relational and cultural values, and an unrepresented psychic void that
can be transmitted over the generations if not addressed.
