Psychoanalysis of Our Time
… last year’s words belong to last year’s language
And next year’s words await another voice.
T. S. Eliot – Little Gidding, Four Quartets

We invite you to reveal with us that new voice, a link between the past and what is coming in the future.

We are marking the anniversary of the one hundred years from the time of Hugo Klajn and other students from our lands attended the lectures of Sigmund Freud in Vienna and on return set up the foundations of a new science here.

You will find out who their continuators and followers are, what is the Psychoanalytical Society of Serbia to which we belong, about the International and European organisations in which we were educated and of which we are members; how we work and how we perceive today the fundamental psychoanalytical concepts of those times.

We invite you to meet psychoanalysis of our time.

Marilia Aisenstein, training analyst of the Paris Psychoanalytical Society (SPP), European representative in the Board of the International Psychoanalytical Association (IPA), author of numerous texts and publications on psychosomatics and winner of the Bouvet Award
