COWAP Conference “Women’s Safety in Dogmatic Times”

03/09/2018 - 03/10/2018

open to public
Organizer: IPA - International Psychoanalytical Association
Venue: The Gateway Hotel

>> Website

The COWAP conference in Kolkata (India), the first of its kind in the city, is on the theme of ‘Women’s Safety in Dogmatic Times’. It is a 2-day conference, to be held on 9th & 10th of March 2018, at the Gateway Hotel, Kolkata. The idea was to initiate a discourse on women and psychoanalysis with an interdisciplinary approach. Thus, the local planning & organizing committees comprised psychoanalysts, scholars from social sciences, psychiatrists and psychologists. This way it opened up the gate for psychoanalysis to enter the mainstream academic discourse of universities as well as other practicing fields of mental health in the city of Kolkata. Besides the IPA and COWAP, other collaborating & associating bodies for this conference are – Indian Psychoanalytical Society, West Bengal State University (Centre for Psychodynamic Studies), Crystal Minds, all from Kolkata, and the Psychoanalytic Study Group of the Dept of Psychology, Christ University, from Bangalore.

Women’s wellbeing and security in India has often depended on their gender positioning. Historically, women in India have been subjected to various forms of oppression and deprivation. Starting from sex selective abortions to domestic violence, bride burning for dowry and acid attacks, women in India wade through severe threats to their physical safety and survival at every juncture of their lives. These threats to women’s security have increased manifold with the progressive polarization and hardening of socio-political and cultural ideologies in recent times. As spaces for difference shrink and dogma dominates our public lives, women find themselves more marginalized than ever before. The promotion of a particular notion of ‘Indian culture’ is forcing women into ‘traditional’ roles in which they stand to lose many of their hard earned freedom, choices and opportunities. When women are refusing to conform to these restrictive norms they are being subjected to violence. Any attempt to challenge institutional hegemonies of marriage, religion or heterosexuality is leading to aggressive and punitive assaults. It is not surprising that the rates of crime against women are on the rise and the question for women’s safety and wellbeing is becoming urgent and critical. The broader sub-themes around which the 2-day COWAP conference in Kolkata would revolve around would comprise – (i) religion; (ii) intimacy and violence; (iii) dogma in the clinical Space; (iv) revisiting motherhood. Psychoanalysis and Social Sciences would engage with such concerns and reflect on the multi-layered psychological, socio-cultural, political aspects working upon them.

A joint Tavistock Clinic and UCL Psychoanalysis Unit Conference

Solid evidence is now available for the benefit of psychoanalytic therapies provided at differing phases of the life-cycle to NHS patients suffering from a range of depressive disorders. It comes from the Tavistock Adult Depression Study’s evaluation of 60 session therapies for adults with chronic treatment-resistant depression and the IMPACT Study’s comparative evaluation of 28 session psychoanalytic therapies for adolescents with major depressive disorder. A German Study has shown the benefit of 80 sessions of psychoanalytic therapy with chronically depressed adults. As well as having an RCT methodology, these Studies, through qualitative research and psychoanalytic clinical research, have much to tell us about depression and its optimal treatment.

The Conference will begin with keynote presentations. Principal researchers will provide expert overviews of the outcome findings. Senior Clinicians will describe what psychoanalytic treatments of depression involve. The afternoon programme will have two blocks of four parallel papers each in which the Studies’ researchers, psychoanalytic clinicians and other key colleagues will address:

.)Factors determining treatment responsiveness and/or treatment resistance, and the stability of response
.)Varieties of Depression, their underpinnings and their treatments
.)Depression across the life-cycle
.)Whether psychoanalytic treatments offer a specific type of change
.)Clinical management issues including suicide risk
.)What psychoanalytic understanding might offer to Psychiatric Settings & Services
.)The value of the psychoanalytic understanding of dealing with Unpleasant Facts: the case of hospice work
.)Managing Depression in Primary Care

This Conference will be a working event. There will be time for those attending to contribute fully to the discussions. A closing plenary panel will put together a view of how psychoanalytic therapies might improve what is offered to those suffering from depression and allied disorders, and assist in the development of our mental health services.

On the Friday afternoon/evening preceding the Conference, there will be clinical workshops & research masterclasses.
