FRAGMENTATIONS

Meeting on Sándor Ferenczi Studies and Research

Lisbon Preconference of 14th International Sándor Ferenczi Conference

28-29 FEBRUARY 2020

LISBON

Life bears the taint of trauma, rupture and extreme and intolerable situations. Radically overwhelming, trauma constitutes a wound to the mind that tests the limits of representation. The traumatized person is confronted with the impossible task of taking in the unthinkable and is forced to invent new ways of existence to survive. Splitting, dissociation, fragmentation, and atomization are some of the features described by the psychoanalyst Sándor Ferenczi (1873-1933), that the subject uses in deterring the unbearable anxiety and the threat of psychic annihilation.

FRAGMENTATIONS is the topic of the Meeting on Ferenczi Studies and Research that takes place in Lisbon, at the University Institute of Psychological, Social and Life Sciences (ISPA), on the 28th and 29th of February 2020 in the scope of the Pre-confereces for the 14th International Sándor Ferenczi Conference, Brazil, 2021. This theoretical and clinical meeting gathers psychoanalysts from Brazil, Canada, Hungary, Italy and Portugal interested in the in-depth study of Ferenczi's concepts and their expansion in contemporary psychoanalytic theory and technique.
