“Who, Whose, How: Reflecting on the 'Third' in Complex Today’s Families”     

Dear colleague, We are happy to invite you to the 11th Syros Summer Workshop on Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy, organised by the Hellenic Association of Child and Adolescent Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy, under the auspices of EFPP.

This year the Syros Summer Workshop celebrates 20 years of a living tradition, which combines psychoanalytic studies with Greek island summer weather. The workshop takes place in the neoclassical building of the Hermoupolis townhall, the capital of the Cycladic island of Syros. All workshop presentations (theoretical and clinical) are discussed in small Anglophone and Francophone groups, and then are reported back to the plenary for a general discussion.

 

The high-quality presentations in the plenary, and the exchange of ideas in the discussion groups have always been characterised by a friendly atmosphere; the same atmosphere has accompanied us after each day’s work to the seaside and the local tavernas, making the participation in the Syros Summer Workshop a unique experience.

 

This year the workshop will be held from Friday 31st of May - Sunday, 2nd of June, 2019.

The theme of the workshop is “Reflecting on the 'Third' in Complex Today’s Families”, and it sets out to explore the presence/absence/ various forms of existence of the ‘Third’, in regard to the multiple and complex forms of contemporary families.
