Seventh International Congress: August 31 - September 7, 1977

Judith Hubback, M.A.

The seventh International Congress of the International Association for Analytical Psychology took place in Rome. After the official opening on the Capitol, the most famous of the Seven Hills, the scheduled meetings and discussions were held in the beautiful and functional hall of the Consiglio Nazionale delle Rocerche; the less official and the spontaneous ones took place in the homes of our Italian hosts, in restaurants, in churches and among the antiquities, in the sun, according to taste.

The Congress was the best attended so far—400 participants—and the work of the Italian Scientific Committee under the energetic presidency of Aldo Carotenuto bore very rich results in terms of its value to all those attending. The two Italian member-groups of the I.A.A.P. co-operated throughout, which was certainly encouraging both to those members from Great Britain who had been through years of anxiety about the formation of the Association of Jungian Analysts (Alternative Training) and also to members in North America, where the New England Society of Jungian Analysts has been formed. Both were accepted at the Delegates’ Meeting as new constituent group members.

As fears about splitting cannot but feature in such an international grouping as the I.A.A.P., Gerhard Adler's opening presidential address was felt by many members to strike a constructive note: he spoke of how important it was that different views should exist. The Jungian emphasis on individuation presents us with a difficulty, but he feels that the common concern for the numinosum, which he considers the core experience in therapy, holds us together.
