Friday 27th March 2020, 14:00 – 15:30 GMT (local times are displayed in the dropdown on the registration page).
Facing the terrible pandemic of COVID-19 throughout the world, the IPA has decided to offer an extraordinary webinar with one experienced member of each region: Stefano Bolognini (Italy) Gilbert Kliman (USA) and Yunping Yang (China).
Virginia Ungar (Argentina), IPA President will introduce and moderate the discussion.
Join us to learn from our colleagues about their experiences as psychoanalysts working in isolation, having restricted face-to-face contact and dealing with an unexpected reality that challenges all of us. The IPA is aware of the importance of sharing experiences in the different parts of the world. We know that more than ever, members need to feel connected and have ways of listening to and supporting one another.
If you are unable to attend the live session but would like to receive a recording, please continue to register and a recording will automatically be emailed to you once the live session has ended. Please note, this webinar will be in English.
