Turkey: Istanbul Neuropsychoanalysis Study Group

Fatma Gökçe Özkarar

In the first half of 2013, the Istanbul Study Group—via publications and congresses—continued networking among the varied specialists involved in neuropsychoanalysis: psychoanalysts, psychologists, neurologists, and psychiatrists. Both local and international guests enriched our work.

In April, Metis Press published the Turkish edition of the essential neuropsychoanalytic text, The Brain and the Inner World, by Mark Solms and Oliver Turnbull. This edition was translated by psychiatrist Assoc. Prof. Hakan Atalay from Yeditepe University and edited by clinical psychologist Gökçe Özkarar from Çmar Psychotherapy Center. We expect that this book will greatly expand the audience within Turkey for neuropsychoanalytic perspectives. We announced its publication via the mail groups and websites of the Istanbul Neuropsychoanalysis Study Group, Turkish Psychologists Association, Turkish Neurology Association, Turkish Psychiatry Association, Turkish Neuropsychiatry Association, and Neuropsychology Society.

The 10th International Cognitive Neuroscience Meeting was held from 19 to 21 April in Istanbul at Bilgi University, and for the first time at this society's conference, neuropsychoanalysis was given a prominent place. Child neurologist Charles Njiokiktjien from Leiden University of the Netherlands spoke on “Theory of Body,” and his collaborator, child neurologist Prof. Bariş Korkmaz, from Istanbul University's Cerrahpaşa Faculty of Medicine completed this perspective with his talk on “Theory of Mind.” The subsequent talks focused on specific neuropsychoanalytic topics: Prof. Mark Solms from Cape Town University spoke on “Neuropsychoanalysis of Dreams,” Prof. Oliver Turnbull from Bangor University addressed the “Neuropsychoanalysis of Body Schemas,” Assoc. Prof. Hakan Atalay from Yeditepe University spoke on “Neuropsychoanalysis of Social Mind,” and Clinical Psychologist Gökce özkarar presented “Cross-cultural Affective Neuroscience: Turkish example” (the detailed program is available at In addition, our Istanbul Neuropsychoanalysis group offered the new Turkish translation of The Brain and the Inner World in the bookstands in the congress venue.
