After much deliberation with folks around the world, we have now established the American Association for Existential Analysis.
For the past several years, I have been collaborating with an organization called the International Federation of Daseinsanalysis, made of eleven countries (mainly in Europe). The Organization has persistently sought an American group to participate. Well, finally, that time has come.
We are already receiving emails of interest from Pittsburgh, Seattle, Dallas, San Francisco, Brooklyn, among other places, as well as great affirmation from our IFDA colleagues in Belgium, Greece, England, Switzerland, Hungary, and others in this international community, including those colleagues in South American and Asia.
The association intends to promote dialogue between Existential, Psychoanalytic, and Contemplative traditions, West and East. We are addressing more concrete administrative issues related to formalizing our membership in IFDA, but if you wish to be added to our interest list just contact Todd DuBose at, firstname.lastname@example.org.
