Evaluation Session

Professor Sandler opened the last session of the 37th IPA Congress on Friday 2 August. He observed that it was in part an evaluation session, but also an opportunity for the Executive Council to voice its thanks to the organizers of the Congress. He said that the Congress had been one of the very best, and particularly special in that it was the first to be held in Latin America. He welcomed Dr Angel Garma, already an Honorary Vice-President, and Dr William Gillespie, asking the meeting to confirm the unanimous recommendation of the Council that Dr Gillespie be appointed an Honorary Vice-President. This was done by acclamation. Professor Sandler then invited the new President-Elect, Dr Horacio Etchegoyen, to say a few words.

Dr Etchegoyen said that he was pleased to announce that the Madrid Society had been selected for the Annual Psychoanalytic Book Award.

Professor Sandler thanked the President-Elect and reported on arrangements for the 38th IPA Congress in Amsterdam in July 1993. The Programme Committee would be chaired by Dr med. Lore Schacht, assisted by Dr Carlos Mario Aslan and Robert L. Tyson M.D. as Co-Chairs. Each of the Chairs would draw upon advice from a small group of consultants in their respective regions. The main theme of the Congress would be 'The Psychoanalyst's Mind: From Listening to Interpretation'. There were to be a number of changes to the format of the Congress; the Committee would invite five distinguished analysts from each region to write a paper—these could subsequently form the contents of a book. Three papers, one from each region, would be selected for presentation at the three plenary sessions. In addition, the Programme Committee would invite the membership of the IPA to submit individual papers and poster presentations. The latter were a novel feature for IPA meetings, and in the nature of an experiment. Workshops and Discussion Groups would be scheduled as usual, but the format of the final day of the Congress would change. There would still be a morning plenary session, but in the afternoon there would be a special applied session focusing on, for example, Dutch Art in relation to psychoanalysis.

Professor Sandler announced that the pre-Congress Conference of Training Analysts would be chaired by Miss Betty Joseph, with David M. Sachs M.D. and Dra Sara Zac de Filc as Co-Chairs. The Conference theme would be 'Clinical Supervision'.
