So this is the Strong Sex: Early Women Psychoanalysts

The Freud Museum London’s upcoming exhibition “So this is the Strong Sex”: Early Women Psychoanalysts explores the lives and work of a number of women from the early history of psychoanalysis. An exciting collaboration with the Sigmund Freud Museum in Vienna, this historically focussed exhibition showcases the major influence Marie Bonaparte, Helene Deutsch, Emma Eckstein, Anna Freud, Lou Andreas-Salomé and Sabina Spielrein had on the work of Sigmund Freud and the development of psychoanalysis.

Using materials from the Sigmund Freud Museum in Vienna, the show will connect the achievements of these figures with the era in which they lived. Seeking to challenge the idea of psychoanalysis as a science dominated by men, the issues of childcare in Vienna of the 1920s and 1930s, the development of international women’s movements, and core topics of psychoanalysis such as the Oedipus complex, transference and countertransference, sexuality and femininity will be explored.

For the first time ever the Freud Museum London will be exhibiting unpublished letters from Princess Marie Bonaparte, a figure integral to the Freud family’s escape from the Nazis in 1938. Alongside antiquities from Freud’s collection which Bonaparte personally smuggled out of Nazi-occupied Vienna, this opening up of the archive is an exciting opportunity to discover the personal correspondence of Anna and Sigmund Freud, and their most trusted confidantes.

Anxiety, Dread and Fear


“Like one, that on a lonesome road/Doth walk in fear and dread,/And having once turned round walks on,/And turns no more his head;/Because he knows, a frightful fiend/ Doth close behind him tread.”

Samuel Taylor Coleridge, The Rime of the Ancient Mariner

Most of us are familiar with some of the problems associated with anxiety. But anxiety’s vital function is glimpsed when we think about those without a sufficient capacity to bear it: what should be sensed as a threat presents no danger, or offers an exciting risk; damage often follows - although not always. From the first, Freud felt that anxiety and fear are central to human behaviour, to our interior mental life and to our object relations, attachments and achievements. He identified the different forms of anxiety including as a response to real, sometimes archaic dangers such being killed, eaten or harmed, starved, of separation from or losing one’s mother, of physical castration by a dominant male or female, expulsion from the group, but also phantasies of these threats, leading to anxiety situations that are mostly internal. In trauma, the level of anxiety has exceeded the ego’s capacity to manage them. The individual’s relationship to its good object breaks down with severe consequences for functioning.

This year’s UCL Conference will address these and other forms of anxiety, fear and dread, and the deeper matters that seem to give rise to them. We will consider how they are best understood and responded to clinically. We will seek to identify our current accounts of anxiety and its cognate states.

Scientific Workshop – Do We Have Sufficient Common Ground to Belong to the Same Psychoanalytic Society?

open to public
Organizer: Toronto Psychoanalytic Society

Cost: $175 (includes lunch)
Open to Members, Affiliates/Guests, TIP Candidates, and ATPPP Trainees. Preregistration is required.

It is a fact that members of Psychoanalytic Societies adhere to divergent analytic perspectives. This fact raises the question: “Do they have sufficient common ground to belong to the same psychoanalytic society”? This is not a new question. It probably occurred to you before. If you did not immediately dismiss it, and instead reflected upon it, what was your answer?

In this workshop we are going to explore the question that is rarely asked: “What are the impacts of Divergent Analytic Perspectives on the analytic process?” Through reviewing detailed analytic interactions from analysts who adhere to different analytic perspectives – Ego Psychology, Kleinian, Self-Psychology, Relational – we will explore the similarities and differences among them and examine the challenging questions that these raise. These explorations will hopefully encourage the participants to become more aware of what of what these analytic perspectives emphasize and de-emphasize and to consider a variety of analytic options.

Learning Objectives:
At the end of this workshop participants will be able to:
- Review the unique features of four different analytic perspectives;
- Consider the challenging questions related to comparing different analytic perspectives;
- Evaluate a method of comparing between different analytic perspectives.
