Every two years, alternating from each side of the Atlantic to the other, an International “Rendez-vous” brings together members of the IF and the School around a theme set at the previous” Rendez-vous”.

Prior to each “Rendez-vous”, preparatory work is distributed to the members’ mailing list and posted on the website. The contributions presented during the “Rendez-vous” are published electronically in the journal Hétérité.

Each meeting is an opportunity to convene the assemblies of the IF and the School with the purpose of adjusting the direction and functioning based on the experience gained and the change of situations.


1st may


Neither one nor the other, and a fortiori not the one with children in institutions, deviates from the singularity of the Analytical Discourse but all these practices present particularities which relate as much to the device as to a more complex relationship to the transfer . On the other hand, the clinic encountered is often particular with numerous cases of psychoses, autism, addictions, family pathologies complicated by social pathologies. The clinical experience of colleagues who work with the REP, RIP, RHIPNA, REPSY networks, can enlighten us on the ethical conditions of these particular clinics supported by the decided desire of clinicians, in particular those who maintain the analytical experience in places who do not support it, or even fight it.

16h30-18h30 : International Laboratory of the Politics of Psychoanalysis (LIPP)

Among the urgencies of our time, the greatest urgency for us today: the survival of psychoanalysis. In one way or another, all participants of the LIPP, gathered in cartels, have different perspectives on this issue.

Attempting to address the politics of our School has, on the one hand, led us to return to the fundamental questions of psychoanalysis that form the politics of psychoanalysis, not to be confused with realpolitik, since “the unconscious is politics”: the intimate relationship between clinic and politics, the confusion between extension and expansion, the politics of the act, the impossibility of transmission of psychoanalysis, etc.

On the other hand, it has also led us to think about the malaise in our current institutions in order to try to determine if there are distinct external factors in each zone that influence this malaise, as well as to focus on the cause of the malaise, by trying to show the discourse that has been established in this or that situation. On the basis of these questions, possible methods of intervention have been considered.

Finally, ¿how do the emergencies of a time and place affect a Forum, and what are the consequences for the School? These are some of the questions of our School that resonate with our questions about the subjectivity of our contemporary world.
