I am writing to you all on behalf of the 2022 Freud Conference committee. Based on expert health advice concerning COVID, and as part of our responsibility for ensuring the safety of all conference attendees, we have decided now to change our 2022 Freud Conference from a live to online event.
The program will remain the same and the presentations are now being broadcast live from the Melbourne Brain Centre, with only the Conference personnel i.e., presenters, chairs and organizing committee, working from the MBC. Everyone else will be linked by Zoom.
In consideration of this change the conference fee will be reduced to $200.00 per person, with those already registered receiving a refund. Concessions for pension card holders and full-time students under 35 are reduced to $175.00.
We are aware that it is very disappointing to all who were intending to come to the conference venue and were looking forward to meeting up with our esteemed international presenters, Phillip Stokoe and Mary Morgan. Notwithstanding this change, we are looking forward to a very stimulating and enriching event.
NB: All registration fees must be forwarded to our Administrator, Gurli Hughes, by Wednesday, 12thOctober. Your receipt from Gurli will also include your access number to join the Zoom on the day. If there is any problem, please contact Gurli or me.
Please direct any other enquiries to me directly. Thank you.
With the reopening of international borders we are pleased to again be delivering the 2022 Freud Conference at The Melbourne Brain Centre, Kenneth Myer Building, 30 Royal Parade, Parkville, on October 15. The date has been set back from our regular May delivery to accomodate the travel arrangements for this year’s presenters: Mary Morgan and Phil Stokoe, who will be flying in from the UK.
Our first Freud Conference webinar has been a great success and on behalf of the committee we would like to extend a big thank you to our presenters, Dr Jo O’Reilly and Phil Stokoe, to the chairs, Dr Peter Smith and Dr Rob Gordon and all of our attendees for engaging in what was such a thought-provoking delivery.
Special thanks also to our IT/media team of David Christov and Damien Pierce.
The conference is now available for viewing in its entirety for the next month for all attendees, and new registrations are also now available at the slightly discounted rate of $130. Bookings through Trybooking.
FREUD CONFERENCE UPDATE This year (2021) we will be running an Online Conference on Saturday 15th May with the theme: Covid, Contagion and the Organisational Containment of Anxiety. The conference will run from 6-10 pm (1800-2200) Australian Eastern Standard Time in order to accomodate the speakers delivery from the UK at 0900-1300 GMT.
Dr Jo O’Reilly Fear, Loss and Estrangement: the emotional impact of the covid pandemic upon staff working in mental health and how the organisation can help.
Phil Stokoe The impact of Covid on the healthy function of organisations and teams: recognising isolation and its effects.
FREUD CONFERENCE ALERT The 2020 Freud Conference, LOVE in a Hostile Environment, has unfortunately been cancelled because of the pandemic, and the resultant worldwide lockdowns, the closure of all entertainment and travelling arrangements, and large gatherings of people.
In consultation with our two internationally renowned Freud Conference speakers, Phil Stokoe and Mary Morgan, we have now rescheduled our conference, with the same theme, to Saturday 7th May, 2022.
The venue remains as: The Melbourne Brain Centre, Kenneth Myer Building, 30 Royal Parade, Parkville, MELBOURNE.
Our advertising brochures will be revised and sent out to everyone on our mailing list around September/October 2021. At the same time our online registration, together with the brochure, will be available on our website, and emailed to all interested new registrants.
We hope you all remain safe during this very distressing period.
Thank you and best wishes on behalf of the Freud Conference organising committee: Christine Hill (AAGP, PPAA) Roslyn Glickfield (APAS) Maryanna Podreka (AAGP) Gurli Hughes (Administrative Manager) Damien Pierce (Media & Design)
