Save These Dates: Nov 4th & 5th, 2023

The most brilliant of Freud’s students, Otto Rank had a highly productive life as a lecturer, therapist and writer after leaving Vienna. His work greatly influenced many notable figures, including the psychoanalyst Jacques Lacan, the client-centered psychotherapist Carl Rogers, the existential psychoanalyst Rollo May, the existential therapist Irvin Yalom, and the cultural anthropologist Ernest Becker. It was his profound influence on May and Rogers in particular that gave birth to existential-humanistic psychology in the U.S.

This Conference, unprecedented in the annals of both psychoanalysis and existential-humanistic psychology, will re-introduce the legacy, focus, and implications of Rank’s genius for a new generation of Depth Psychologists. Specifically, the conference will focus on Rank’s move from Freudian psychoanalysis to here-now experience and its foundational impact on psychospiritual healing. The conference features eight speakers representing a wide range of perspectives on Rank, coupled with experiential sessions where speakers and audience interact.

Please save the date and join us for this trailblazing venture into the reawakened legacy of Freud’s unsung protégé and contemporary torchbearer.
