Report on the International Congress on Couple and Family Psychoanalysis, “Interpretation in Family and Couple Psychoanalysis” Held in Madrid, 23-26 February, 2017
Jill Savege Scharff, M.D.
Following the success of previous International Congresses in couple and family psychoanalysis on the themes of “Global Perspectives” (Buenos Aires in 2015), and (“The Frame” in Washington DC, USA), the Family and Couple Psychoanalysis Committee of the International Psychoanalytic Association (IPA), this time with the Madrid Psychoanalytic Association, presented an International Congress on “Interpretation in Family and Couple Psychoanalysis,” organised by David Scharff and Elizabeth Palacios. This IPA committee was originated under the leadership of the late Isidoro Berenstein, and is now chaired by David Scharff. The four day Congress was co-sponsored by the Sociedad Española de Psicoanálisis (IPA member), the International Psychotherapy Institute (IPI), the International Association of Couple and Family Psychoanalysis (IACFP), and the Spanish Federation of Psychotherapy Associations (FEAP), and was supported in part by the IPA’s Analytic Practice and Scientific Activities Committee (CAPSA) programme to promote inter-regional analytic dialogue.
The Congress programme featured case presentations, short papers on the role of interpretation in family and couple psychoanalysis using object relations, link theory, and classical Freudian concepts, videos of family therapy, discussant responses, and lots of audience discussion, all with simultaneous Spanish/English translation. Members of the audience came from nineteen countries in the Americas, Australasia, China, Israel, and Europe. The IPA committee spearheads these Congresses annually in various regions to invite a conversation about the development of a multifaceted, internationally informed, psychoanalytic theory of couple and family dynamics and interventions.
