FROM THE MARGINS TO THE CENTRE:
CONTEMPORARY RELATIONAL PERSPECTIVES.

IARPP 14th ANNUAL CONFERENCESydney Australia 
25-28 May 2017

 

Dates: 25th to 28th May 2017
Location: SMC Conference Centre
66 Goulburn St, Sydney NSW 2000

Co-hosted by the Australian and New Zealand Chapters of IARPP

In this conference, in acknowledgement of the fact that Australia and New Zealand are on the margins of the world map, we expect to explore challenges to the centres of relational thought, while also seeking the interplay of ideas flowing from the centre, from the mainstream, in many directions. The conference seeks to examine dialectical tensions between the edge and the centre, between mainstream and innovative ideas from within many different contexts. The vision of the IARPP is to be open to multiple dialogues and dialectics centered in the world of psychoanalysis and psychotherapy but extending into the contemporary world.

The Sydney conference takes as its theme the enrichment of mainstream ideas and concepts by the addition of thoughts ‘from the margins’. It is our vision that progress and creativity thrive when familiar concepts and ideas are seen from new angles. Those who live, work and think at the margins, at the edges, away from the centre, necessarily have perspectives that differ from those who look from the centre, or from the mainstream. We hope that our conference will offer the opportunity to bridge differences and accordingly, we would like to extend a warm invitation to our colleagues all over the world, including Asia and the Pacific, to join us in developing these contemporary relational perspectives.
