The question of an "ethical stance" has remained a central theme for psychoanalysts working right now in the midst of the war in Ukraine. Since many attendees and discussants expressed the strong wish to keep this discussion going after the first evening in the summer of 2022, the series continues. Ghislaine Boulanger, Ph.D., will meet with interested psychoanalysts, psychologists and other professionals from the Ukraine and other countries.

This evening will provide another opportunity to discuss in detail clinical questions arising from the treatment of patients under conditions of war with Dr. Boulanger. Several clinical cases will be presented by Ukrainian psychoanalysts and psychotherapists. One of the questions that will continue to guide our discussions will be the question of ethics in this particular case of an on-going, brutal war, but other questions, emerging from the clinical field, will also be addressed at our third meeting.

Translation (English-Ukrainian) will be provided.
