We invite metaphoric, creative or direct engagement with the theme: Reckoning/Foresight


Submissions might address Psychoanalysis as a field, as a theory, as research, as practice, and/or as a way to offer a social/historical/political reading of our current world.

Submissions are encouraged to explore less represented areas of psychoanalytic inquiry including, but not limited to, substance use research, medical settings and healthcare, families and children, artistic expression, rural and community health, psychosis and suicide.


We will prioritize panels that include experience-near discussions and significant audience interaction,

multi-generational conversations, innovative approaches to dialogue or sharing of knowledge (including opportunities for experiential, kinesthetic, auditory, and/or visual learning) as well as self- reflexivity about the panelists' intersecting identities and positionalities.


Psychoanalytic Psychology has the right of first consideration for all panels and papers under the aegis of Division 39.
