Dear UC/NCP IPC Members,
We are gearing up for our Annual University of California / New Center for Psychoanalysis Interdisciplinary Psychoanalytic Consortium meetings. They will be held on April 20 – 22, 2018 at the UCLA Conference Center in Lake Arrowhead, CA.
This year’s theme is:
Lies, Secrets, and Self-Deception: Truth and Psychoanalysis in the Age of Trump
The full conference description and call for papers is available here. Please consider submitting a proposal to the Program Committee to facilitate one of the sessions.
Also, circulate this announcement widely, identifying anyone who you think might be interested in attending and participating in the Consortium.
In these dark times, it is especially important to gather among friends and colleagues! I think the theme will establish a framework for discussion over the week-end that will be refreshing and restorative for everyone!
We will be posting the registration form for the conference in the coming week or so, along with information on student stipends and paper prizes. Please be sure to check It is very important for people to register as early as possible for the week-end! We rely on the registration money to help fund the conference, including the many early up-front costs. UC/NCP IPC, alas, has no reserve funds and depends on you.
Director, UC/NCP IPC
