Arbeitstagung „Diskurs über Neuropsychologie“

»Sie, Ihre Freuden und Leiden, Ihre Erinnerungen, Ihre Ziele, Ihr Sinn für Ihre eigene Identität und Willensfreiheit –
bei alledem handelt es sich in Wirklichkeit nur um das Verhalten einer riesigen Ansammlung von Nervenzellen und dazugehörigen Molekülen.«
Francis Crick

In ihrer Streitschrift »Kritik der Neuropsychologie« machen Hans Werbik und Gerhard Benetka deutlich, dass das Erklärungspotenzial der Neurowissenschaften in der Psychologie weitgehend überschätzt wird. Sie erinnern an einige der Versprechen, mit denen NeurowissenschaftlerInnen vor einiger Zeit an die Öffentlichkeit traten – vieles davon hat sich nicht bewahrheitet. Zudem zeigen sie, dass psychische, soziale und kulturelle Phänomene in den Denkmustern der Naturwissenschaften nicht adäquat zu erfassen sind.
Ziel der Arbeitstagung ist es, diese Streitschrift mit Neuropsychologenund Philosophen zu diskutieren, um herauszufinden, worüber man sich einigen kann.

Veranstalter: Sigmund Freud PrivatUniversität – Fakultät für Psychologie
Tagungsleitung: Prof. Dr. Gerhard Benetka und Prof. Dr. Hans Werbik

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

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.
