The Site for Contemporary Psychoanalysis was established in October 1997 by psychotherapists who wished to create a training programme and an association that would foster critical, reflective, and imaginative thinking about psychoanalysis and its contemporary practices.
This anniversary event aims to celebrate the work done over the past 25 years, and to reflect upon the past, present and future of psychoanalysis. We will host panel discussions of the history of The Site, including the work of RD Laing; the thresholds of psychoanalysis including ecology, feminism, race and the arts; and a discussion on psychoanalysis outside the clinic. We invite you to join forces in re-imagining and re-defining the role that contemporary psychoanalysis has to play today.
