The Seventh Joint International Conference will focus on the theme of Passion in psychoanalytic work and everyday life. Psychoanalysis has been described as a journey into the interior, a creative and mutual process which enables participants to contemplate experiences, explore reactions and generate thoughts that broaden their perspectives and make them more present in life. Central in this intense and deeply personal process is the passion to make sense, to create links between the past and the present and the personal and the interpersonal, and to give voice to internal states and experiences. Yet, side by side with the passion analysts feel for the work they do is the reality of clients devoid of passion, or full of destructive if not obstructive passion. Maintaining passion in working with patients who are fearful of intense emotions, tolerating the emotional turbulence patients generate with their intense reactions and rigid beliefs, and facilitating exchanges that feel meaningful and resonant, are challenges familiar to every analyst. The conference will offer presenters an opportunity to address a range of issues related to different experiences and manifestations of passion including, but not limited to: passionate beliefs and ideas; passions that blind; passions that give meaning and structure; failure to find/maintain passion in life and relationships; destructive, self-destructive, and pathological passions; obsessive, alienating and ritualistic passions; shared passions; passions in the transference/countertransference; commodification, objectification of passion and desire; differences in passion between males and females, gay and straight.
