Report of the 30th International Psycho-Analytical Congress

Francis McLaughlin


The official Bulletin of the International Psycho-Analytical Association is being published following the 30th Congress in Jerusalem, as is customary in English in the International Journal of Psycho-Analysis, but also in other languages in psychoanalytic journals, the list of which was read during the Business Meeting. Several modifications to the Constitution and Byelaws were adopted and these are also published here in English but also in the official languages of the psychoanalytic community. The text of the binding resolution that was adopted by the Business Meeting is also included. The English version of the Constitution and Byelaws remains the reference text, the other language versions being made available for use by the various component societies.

The International Psycho-Analytical Association has passed through four years of strenuous activity designed to improve the exchanges between the component groups of the I.P.A. While concern was expressed at all levels of the need to find a common language and objective with which we can all identify, it has been my feeling that the ferment and activity of these past years are a sign of healthy growth and maturation of our science, of our international association and of our component groups. The complexity of our field as well as the complexity of the impinging societies in which we operate seem to produce signs of conflict and division. However as we know full well, out of conflict can come progression and development with ever greater achievements resulting from this.
