Caught in Trauma. 2 Days, 3 Films
Psychoanalytic film workshop (March 28-29 before the EPF-Congresd 2020 in Vienna)
In this workshop presented by the Vienna Psychoanalytic Academy we will examine experiences of
being caught in individual and/ or collective trauma. Different ways of dealing with trauma will
become apparent in the different artistic expressions of the films shown during the workshop.
How do traumatic experiences of war and displacement continue to work in the unconscious?
The three films consider various geographic areas and periods of traumatising events.
To tie in with the EPF-Congress 2020 theme Realities, films were selected with a focus on Europe.
Discussants: Ermin Bravo, Thomas Jung, Tjark Kunstreich, Stanislav Matačić
The workshop is also the kick-off for the seminar Caught in Trauma. 7 films, 2 semesters
(Im Trauma gefangen. 7 Filme, 2 Semester).
Registration fee: 180,00 Euro.

It is with great pleasure that we invite you to the 33rd conference of the EPF, which will take place
in Vienna from April 2nd to 5th 2020 and where we will be welcomed by both the Vienna
Psychoanalytic Society (WPV) and the Vienna Psychoanalytic Association (WAP).
For our Conference, we have chosen the title ‘Realities’ because our present time with its new
technological achievements has changed and intensified the age-old question of the nature of
being and reality. Of course, as psychoanalysts we are mainly concerned with psychic reality,
following a concept that Freud had already begun to develop in 1895[i] with his distinction
between “thought-reality” and “external reality” which had led him to formulate:
“Thus thought accompanied by a cathexis of the indications of thought-reality or of the
indications of speech is the highest, securest form of cognitive thought-process.”
