Houston Psychoanalytic Society announces that it will continue providing all educational programs (conferences, lectures, study groups) online in 2022-2023, regardless of the status of the pandemic and social quarantine. The HPS board reached this momentous decision in order to increase inclusivity among membership and decrease fossil fuel use that contributes to climate change. Other benefits of online education are convenience, lower costs, and ability to provide more programs. While we enjoy socializing with colleagues, we believe that educational programs provide little time to do so, and do not justify the environmental impact. Therefore, we will also schedule some arts events in Houston primarily for purposes of socialization and networking.
We invite you to join our progressive psychoanalytic organization if you haven’t already done so as we begin planning programs for 2022-2023. In the meantime, we are offering 4 more fabulous conferences in 2021-2022 (Donna Orange, Mark Solms, Tony Bass, Francisco Gonzalez), as well as evening lectures and study groups. For more information, check out our newly designed website at www.houstonpsychoanalytic.org. Best wishes for a safe and joyous holiday season!
