Geographies of Psychoanalysis

Psychoanalysis currently finds itself in a crucial moment that is  apparently contradictory: on the one hand it has to ever increasingly engage with pharmacological therapies and with psychological techniques that are significantly different from itself, on the other, it is expanding in countries very distant from the historical psychoanalytical culture. We need to understand whether psychoanalytical concepts are universal and if its therapeutic methodology is effective in different countries worldwide. This project works to promote research and reflection on this complex and fascinating topic.
