The 37th Annual IAPSP International Conference: "Where Do We Feel At Home?: Self Psychological Perspectives on Belonging and Not Belonging" will be held in Jerusalem, Israel, Tuesday through Saturday, October 21-25, 2014. We cordially invite you to join us for a conference that will consider the multiple and, at times, contradictory aspects of belonging and not belonging in an attempt to address the challenging question: " Where do we feel at home?"

The conference will examine sociopolitical, psychosocial, interpersonal and intra-psychic aspects of ethnicity, community, religion, gender, and sexual orientation - amongst a range of possible dimensions affecting subjective experiences of belonging and not belonging. In this sense then, the conference will be looking at individual and group experiences of acceptance and feeling welcome, and/or experiences of rejection and exclusion. The conference will consist of Panel Presentations, with Faculty, Audience, and Post Panel Group Discussions. There will also be Workshops, Master Classes, and parallel Original Paper Presentations. With an additional program the conference will acknowledge and attempt to address the complex and painful religious and cultural struggles in the region.
