NPSA Congress 2024 – Trieste, Italy
The 23rd Annual Congress of the International Neuropsychoanalysis Society
When the Body Speaks:
Conversion Disorder and Beyond
18 – 20 July 2024
The hard problem of consciousness asks: “How do bodily processes become subjective experiences?” In conversion disorder (previously called ‘hysteria’, now called functional neurological disorder, or ‘FND’) the question is reversed: “How do subjective experiences become bodily disorders?” The aim of this important congress is to engage psychoanalysts, psychotherapists, psychiatrists, neurologists — and all others treating and investigating this disorder — in a conversation about the role of emotional life in its pathogenesis and treatment. Through clinical and research reports, innovative methods and findings, we will attempt to achieve an integrated understanding of this intriguing body/mind connection.
