The Program Committee for the XXII International Congress of Analytical Psychology is pleased to invite proposals for presentations.

The Congress will be held in Buenos Aires, Argentina,  from August 28 to September 2, 2022.

The theme of the Congress will be:


Contemporary perspectives on Clinical, Scientific, Social, Cultural and

Environmental Issues

Analytical Psychology started in Europe at the beginning of the 20th century and has been expanding throughout the world. Traveling through time and reaching new places, Analytical Psychology has been opening up to new ideas and new perspectives, broadening and enriching its theory and practice.

Recent decades have seen a significant rise in the interest in Analytical Psychology in different regions of the world. This is also true for Latin America, as attested by the increasing number of professionals interested in organizing and participating in the Latin American Conferences which have been put together by CLAPA (Latin American Committee of Analytical Psychology) and held every three years.

This is the first time that an International Congress of the IAAP takes place in Latin America.

We want to continue the opening of Analytical Psychology to new spaces, not only in terms of geography, but also in terms of our thinking, practicing, and living. We aim to explore new developments in clinical, scientific, cultural, social, and environmental areas of life.

Today, Analytical Psychology is facing new challenges.  In our clinical practice, we are now working more and more with the effects of traumatic experiences, personality disorders, addiction, autistic spectrum disorders, etc. The growing pressure on the analytic profession to provide scientific evidence for the effectiveness of our work calls for more engagement in research as a way of demonstrating the value of our clinical and theoretical approach.

The participation of Jungian analysts in outreach projects has been on the rise, such as working with victims of environmental and socio-political disasters and, as we are currently witnessing, dealing with the terrible pandemic of coronavirus and covid-19 that has affected the entire world and created enormous challenges for societies everywhere. This work has had a profound effect on our sense of professional identity and has also enriched our understanding of our theoretical concepts and their application to the way we practice.

To talk about Analytical Psychology in Latin America is to talk about diversity, the product of a long history of indigenous cultures, colonialism and immigration from different parts of the world. This legacy has created a fertile field of traditions, myths, symbols and rich multicultural history.

Argentina’s capital city, Buenos Aires, is well known for its long Freudian psychoanalytic tradition, which nowadays coexists with other modalities such as Lacanian, Winnicottian, Cognitive, Gestalt, Systemic, etc.

Interestingly, it was not through the academic scientific tradition, but through the literary world that Jung came to be known in Argentina. It was the famous writer and editor, Victoria Ocampo, who — impressed after reading Psychological Types — decided to have the book translated and published in Spanish in 1934 with an introduction written by Jung.

We have chosen for the logo of the Congress the Floralis Generica because its rich symbolic meaning has become a symbol of the city of Buenos Aires.  According to Eduardo Catalano, the creator of the sculpture, it is «a synthesis of all the flowers and, at the same time, a hope reborn every day at opening”.  It is this journey of renewal full of complexities that enriches our theory and practice, our comprehension of suffering and the nature of the psyche.

We look forward to receiving your proposals:

  • Oral Presentations. Here, we have added a new modality to the traditional oral presentations for our plenary and breakout sessions: Joint Presentations. The Program Committee is also looking into ways to foster discussion in both the plenary and breakout sessions. We would like to encourage presentations organized as panel discussions, in which two or three members present their papers and have a dialogue among themselves and with the audience. Joint presentations should be submitted as one single proposal that includes the papers of all presenters. Titles and authors of the Joint Presentations will be included in the Congress Program and proceedings.
  • Poster Presentations — Poster presentations will be exhibited and the authors will have the opportunity to give a short oral presentation of about 5 -10 minutes during a breakout session. Poster sessions will also be included in the Congress proceedings.
  • Pre-congress workshops
  • Pre- Congress Master Classes 
  • OtherWhile all presentations will necessarily have to fall within the technical and logistical limitations of the Congress, the committee will consider presentations involving the use of media such as film, hypertext, performance, experiential groups, etc.



Proposals should be no more than 500 words, including a title, and should be submitted no later than November 15th, 2020. 

Please submit proposals by email using the new online platform for abstract presentations.

Here you will find a form to fill in with your personal data and where to write or post the abstract. An automatic confirmation of each proposal will be sent upon receipt.

If you do not receive a confirmation, please contact for further instructions.

Program decisions will be announced by June 2021.


  • All presentations will be included in the Proceedings.
  • Any extraordinary costs for a presentation, including specialized equipment, must be paid by the presenter.
  • Should your proposal be accepted, no honorariums or expense reimbursements are offered to presenters.
  • All presenters must register for the Congress. Submission of a proposal will be understood to indicate a willingness to attend the entire Congress if the proposal is accepted.

Inquiries about the program should be sent to:

The Congress will take place in Sheraton Buenos Aires Hotel & Convention Center in the wonderful city of Buenos Aires. The Organizing Committee, chaired by Ana Deligiannis from SUAPA, has already started its preparation.

With very best wishes from the Program Committee of the XXII International
