Online Second International Conference
in Jungian Child Analysis
12-14 March 2021
Clinical approaches to working with children and adolescents:
the challenges for contemporary child analysis
Dedicated to Alessandra Cavalli (1957-2020)
About the event
Three afternoons of high quality and stimulating presentations.
12-14 March 2021
As many of you will know, following the successful International Child Conference in Moscow in April 2019, the Society of Analytical Psychology offered to host a 2nd Child Conference in Cambridge, UK, from March 12th to 14th 2021. Because of the Covid-19 pandemic, we have decided it is premature to hold a live, international conference but since we already have in place a programme of excellent and well-known plenary speakers specialising in child analysis and child research, we have decided to hold the conference online. We hope to host a live conference in 2022.
We were deeply saddened by the death of Alessandra Cavalli on May 17th 2020. She was a child and adult-trained member of the SAP, a dedicated and skilled analyst and an essential member of the organising team for the conference. We have decided to dedicate the online conference to her memory and the opening presentation will be about her significant professional contribution to the field of child analysis.
The conference will be held on three afternoons, Friday March 12th, Saturday 13th and Sunday 14th. This will permit those interested in child analysis but living in different countries to join us online.
