From time to time, the PPAA or its Member Associations offer seminars and conferences to the public.  These may be advertised on this website or the website of the relevant Member Association.

Freud Conference

The Freud Conference is an annual Melbourne event which applies psychoanalytic thinking to the broader psychosocial context, combined with clinical material. Based on different themes each year, and linked with current affairs, eminent international and local speakers from the psychoanalytic community and related academic fields are invited to present their work. This Conference was originally established and organized for 21 years by Douglas Kirsner, Deakin University. Since 1999 representatives from three of the major clinical Australian Psychoanalytic Associations have taken over organizing the Freud Conference which attracts very wide attendances from all over Australia and internationally.
