Report of the Ninth Psycho-Analytical Congress

The Ninth Psycho-Analytical Congress was held at Bad Homburg, near Frankfurt-am-Main, on September 3–5, 1925. Dr. Karl Abraham presided. The lively interest that brought representatives from all countries was evidence of the international character of the proceedings. The over-seas branches (the American and New York groups) were well represented, as also the London and Moscow Societies, and one member had even come from India. As usual, a large number came from the Central European countries. The total number of those present was 190, 95 of whom were members of the International Psycho-Analytical Association.

Professor Freud himself was again unable to be present, but he sent the manuscript of a paper, which was read by Fräulein Anna Freud at the opening of the scientific proceedings. This was an unexpected contribution from the founder of the movement, and the paper, which showed him to be still at the height of his creative power, was warmly welcomed by the Congress. On the evening before the Congress opened, members were entertained at the Kurhaus by the Berlin Psycho-Analytical Society, when Dr. Abraham made a speech bidding them welcome to Germany.

Warmest thanks are due to Herr and Frau Dr. Landauer (Frankfurt-am-Main) and Frau Dr. Happel (Frankfurt-am-Main) for the excellent manner in which they carried out the local arrangements.
