INVITATION TO THE CONGRESS
Psychoanalytic view on death and dying
Time 6th-8th September 2018
Location Sigmund Freud University, Freudplatz 1, A-1020 Vienna, Austria
The congress focusses on the last period of life and highlights the psycho-
logical side of dying. Philosophical and psychoanalytic considerations
are rounding up the meaning of death and dying for human beings.
How do we deal today with the concept of »death drive«?
- the dying person and his/her relatives
- are dying persons waiting for relatives?
- what are the feelings of a dying person?
- what do dying persons grasp from the environment?
- remembering the dead ones, the fear of dying, etc.
- what can psychoanalytic treatment do?
