Обръщение на новия председател на Новата лаканианска школа

Александър Стивънс,

направено на общото изборно събрание на Школата

27 юни 2020,

 представящо основните перспективи пред NLS и темата за следващия Конгрес на Школата в Гент 2021


Скъпи колеги и колежки,

В момента, в който поемам председателството на NLS, държа на първо място да изкажа голямото удоволствие, което имах да работя с предишния екип. Бернар Сейнав направи така, че NSL да премине един важен етап към това, което е основата на една Лаканианска школа, формирането на психоаналитика. Свидетелство за това е чудесният работен ден в Гент през септември 2019 на тема Пасът и Интерпретацията.

Dear colleagues,

Given the context, we met by Skype last Sunday with an Expanded NLS Council and yesterday with the Executive Committee. 

This Expanded Council meeting was particularly intense. We have had an echo of the emergence of this real in our community. 

We are still in this moment of comprehending. There are no signifiers to fill the hole in knowledge that is presenting itself to us. We must consent to it. Only two signifiers stand out now: Dignity and silence. 

It occurred to me that it was necessary not to hold the NLS Congress this year in Ghent. The Ghent Congress is therefore canceled. 

Thank you to all those who worked for it, and to the many authors of the texts that were sent to me. These texts cannot be published, and therefore belong to their authors.  


Thank you also to the authors of the Cuts. 

The Congress Blog will nevertheless remain consultable.

Thank you Els, for the ardent desire that emanates from you, and to your entire team on the Organizing Committee.


Bernard Seynhaeve

Communique from the Council and the Executive Committee of the EFP

Communique from the Council and the Executive Committee of the EFP


Dear colleagues,

The spread of Coronavirus has quickly entered the daily life of our countries, our cities, our families. And unexpectedly, as a disturbing agent, it has entered the life of our analytic community. A few days ago, this virus was defined by the World Health Organization as a pandemic; its spread has become planetary. After its initial development in China, where its dissemination seems to have stopped, it has found its epicenter in Europe, firstly in Northern Italy. States are taking steps to contain its spread and reduce its devastating effects on health and on the economy.

With this Communique, the Council and the Executive Committee of the EFP intend, above all, to send a message of solidarity to all countries, communities, families and people affected by this pandemic, and to all our colleagues who are currently experiencing, at various levels, the concern produced by the development of this pathology.

Secondly, we verify that this situation radically modifies, as occurs in all aspects of collective life, the functioning of the life of our analytical community. The Congresses, the international, national and local activities that punctuate our work for the School under normal circumstances, are being gradually canceled or delayed due to the spread of the virus, for obvious reasons relative to health prevention, and according to the measures adopted by government authorities of each State. 

Moreover, the incidence of this pandemic intimately concerns the exercise of analytical practice in those places where contagion has become dramatic: avoiding physical contact, as indicated by health authorities, in the countries where the spread of the virus has spiked - principally in Italy -, has rendered problematic the analytical session in its normal operation. This raises a series of unprecedented problems for us, to which we are confronted in this urgent situation, and which concern the life of the analytical discourse in times of an epidemic such as the current one.

The European Schools of Psychoanalysis, and in particular their Presidents, are at work in this unprecedented situation to be able to, within the context of the EFP Council, face up to the problems that this entails for the transmission of psychoanalysis and for the exercise of its practice, both in Europe and in the world.



Domenico Cosenza, for the EFP Council and Executive Committee: 

Loretta Biondi (president of SLP) 

Laurent Dupont (president of ECF) 

Angelina Harari (president of AMP)

Bernard Seynhaeve (president of NLS) 

Oscar Ventura (president of ELP); 

Maria Bolgiani (Secretary of EFP) 

Alide Tassinari (Treasurer of EFP)

NLS - Communiqué from the President Bernard Seynhaeve

Communiqué du Président / Communiqué from the President  
Bernard Seynhaeve


Chères et chers collègues,


L'École a été informée de la décision de certains de ses membres de suspendre leur activité libérale. Il n’appartient pas à la NLS de donner à ce propos de consigne générale, en revanche elle ne peut encourager personne à poursuivre sa pratique au risque de la diffusion du virus et des dangers que cela occasionne. Il en va de la responsabilité de chacun.


Par ailleurs, NLS Messager ne peut pas annoncer l'annulation ou les reports de tous les événements des Sociétés et des Groupes. Nous proposons que chaque président des Sociétés et des Groupes prenne lui-même l'initiative d'informer sa communauté.


Bien cordialement,


Bernard Seynhaeve




Dear Colleagues,


The School has been informed of the decision of some of its members to suspend their liberal activity. It is not the role of the NLS to give general instructions on this matter. It cannot, however, encourage anyone to continue their practice at the risk of the spread of the virus and the dangers that this entails. It is a matter of the responsibility of each one.


Furthermore, NLS Messenger cannot announce all the annulations or postponements of the events of the Societies and Groups. We propose that each President of the Societies and Groups take the initiative to inform their communities.


Best regards,

Bernard Seynhaeve
