Report on the XIXth IFPS Forum, “Violence, terror and terrorism today: Psychoanalytic perspectives,” New York City, May 12–15, 2016

Valerie Tate Angel for the Postgraduate Psychoanalytic Society and Cleonie White for the W.A.

They chose a very timely and relevant title, were able to involve some of the best North American colleagues in the plenary sessions, and attracted almost 350 participant colleagues from North and South America, Europe and Asia. Most of those involved were very satisfied with the quality of the event and the dialogue and exchange that the Forum made possible among all of us – with the help of the simultaneous Spanish translation of the plenary panels.

White Institute on Wednesday May 11, and the latter on Thursday May 12 at the Roosevelt Hotel. The Forum was inaugurated that same day at 6 p.m., with introductory words from Juan Flores and the chairs of the conference, and by Susan Kolod’s interview with the writer Mimi Lipson, discussing the 2013 Boston Marathon bombers, followed by songs by Cleonie White. The plenary sessions took place twice a day, and every afternoon there was time for several parallel sessions of individual papers, with the Forum coming to an end only on the Sunday afternoon at 5 p.
