Sexual Diversity and Psychoanalysis: acknowledging the past and looking to the future.

This exciting conference continues the work of opening up psychoanalytic theory and practice to sexual diversity that started when the BPC issued a Position Statement opposing discrimination on the grounds of sexual orientation in 2011.

PPNow 2021 will open with a public lecture by Dr Jack Drescher on the evening of Friday 05 November, followed by a full programme on Saturday 06 November. We have created a hybrid event with a limited number of in-person tickets at the British Library and a curated online version on both days. Full details here
