The X Nordic Psychoanalytic congress in Turku was the main event of the year, analysts in Turku being responsible for the organising work. The theme of the congress was “The dissolution of the oedipus complex”. The congress was well attended, the number of participants exceeding 200 and that of companions 50. The choice of the congress location at the heart of the old capital of Finland turned out to be successful. The majority of congress papers will be published in this journal.

Besides the scientific meetings, five post-graduate seminars were functioning. There has also been a group: “Analysts against nuclear war”, holding meetings once a month. The group belongs to the organisation “International Psychoanalysts against nuclear war”, which was founded at the IPA congress in Hamburg, 1985.

The number of members is now 101, of which 41 senior and 59 associate members. 41 candidates are in training. A training seminar for expertness in child analysis is also functioning; the seminar started in autumn 1984, with five analysts participating.
