=======================================================================

Dear Colleague,

We are pleased to invite you to submit a proposal for the 35th Annual
Conference on the Psychology of the Self, coming up October 18, 2012, in
Washington, D.C. While IAPSP’s foundational purpose is the study,
research, development and practice of self psychology as developed by
Heinz Kohut, their Annual Conference also explores self psychology in
its relationship to infant research, neurobiology, philosophy and other
psychoanalytic theories.

IAPSP’s conference brings together psychoanalysts, psychiatrists,
psychologists, social workers, scholars, psychiatric nurses, family
therapists, and professional counselors in a dialogue between their
fields and the theory of self psychology. The IAPSP’s collegial
atmosphere provides maximum opportunity for dialogue between audience
and presenters.

We welcome proposals on the conference theme, and on all topics relevant
to Self Psychology and Psychoanalysis.

The deadline is March 26, 2012, but we will be grateful if you can

planning. For complete information on how to submit a proposal, please
