Congress 2024

XXIIIrd Congress of the International Szondi Association

The International Szondi Association and the Centre d'Études Pathoanalytiques gladly announe the XXIII Congress of the International Szondi Association. The event will be held on

18-20. July 2024 in Leuven, Belgium.

The proposed topic of the Congress will be

in its multiple meanings. In everyday life it has often acquired a dramatic and negative connotation. However, it is derived from the original Ancient Greek κρινομαι with meanings as: to separate, sift, distinguish, decide, settle, direct and judge. It fits well with Szondi's word: Schicksal ist Wahl. Crisis, therefore, between fatality, open destiny and the choice of the person.

The ISA conferences are understood as a coming together in their diversity of evolutions departing from and referring to the thinking and practice of Szondi's Schicksalsanalyse (Fate Analysis).


L'Société Internationale Szondi et le Centre d'Études Pathoanalytiques annoncent avec plaisir le XXIIIe Congrès de l'Association Internationale Szondi. L'événement se tiendra

du 18 au 20 juillet 2024 à Louvain, Belgique.

Nous proposons comme thème :

dans ses multiples significations. Dans la vie de tous les jours, ce terme revêt souvent une connotation dramatique et négative. Cependant, il est dérivé du grec ancien original κρινομαι avec les significations : séparer, passer au crible, distinguer, décider, régler, juger et juger. Cela correspond bien à la parole de Szondi : Schicksal ist Wahl. Crise donc entre fatalité, destin ouvert et choix de la personne.

Les conférences de la SIS sont comprises comme un rassemblement, dans leur diversité, d'évolutions partant et se référant à la pensée et à la pratique de la Schicksalsanalyse (Analyse du Destin) de Szondi.
