INTERNATIONAL PSYCHOHISTORICAL ASSOCIATION’S 45th ANNUAL CONFERENCE Group Identity and the Sources of Conflict
Virtual event on Zoom
Political, racial, religious, and other large group identities and belief systems are being challenged as never before in our era of globalization. Conflicts include white supremacism vs. multicultural solidarity; resurgent patriarchy vs. gender diversity and equality; authoritarianism vs. democracy; science denial (on pandemics and climate change) vs. science-informed policy and activism; and more. Some of the questions we ask are:
- How should we understand the psychodynamics of conflict in its many forms? — What are the sources of group identities in childhood experience and later socialization? — How can we handle conflict to facilitate individual and collective healing?
The 44th Annual Convention of the International Psychohistorical Association
IDENTITY AND CONFLICT IN HISTORY, CULTURE AND SOCIETY
May 19–21, 2021 (9:30am – 6pm EDT) Live Virtual Conference
Co-Sponsored by: The Object Relations Institute for Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis
& The New York University, Silver School of Social Work
The world is experiencing historic levels of ideological, racial, class, caste, health, ecological and domestic conflicts. Conflict, in its various enactments, dominates our media, politics, and communities. This annual conference of the International Psychohistorical Association will explore CONFLICT psycho-historically, in its relation to personal and group traumas, identities and constructive and destructive potentialities.
In addition, for those that are taking the course, Dr. Victoria Grinman is offering an 8 week live support group for parents, in which she will facilitate a guided discussion about the material in the course and answer any questions you have about it, including helping you apply the information and strategies to your own kiddo(s). Having the support of others is so important and we hope this gives you some relief in knowing that you are not alone.
COVID-19 – please consider the following GUIDELINES:
