Un mot de notre présidente

À titre de présidente de la Société psychanalytique d'Ottawa (SPO), c’est un honneur que de procéder au lancement de notre nouveau site internet. Je tiens à remercier notre webmaster, le Dr Yasser Ad-Dab'bagh et notre designer, Nasser Eldjama de Com3xprt, pour le montant considérable d'heures qu'ils y ont consacré.
Depuis 1972,  l’engagement de la SPO envers le maintien, le développement ainsi que l'évolution des notions psychanalytiques et de l'expertise clinique est bien établi dans notre communauté. Notre programme de « Psychanalyse et cinéma » en est à sa 12è année. Nous avons favorisé la création de liens avec notre communauté psychodynamique dans la région. Nous espérons que ce nouveau site deviendra une plate-forme importante pour échanger des idées, en plus de stimuler la communication et le réseautage.

"The capacity to become depressed, to mourn loss, is something that is not inborn nor is it an illness, it comes as an achievement of healthy emotional growth." — D. W. Winnicott
"The interpretation of dreams is the royal road to a knowledge of the unconscious activities of the mind." — Sigmund Freud

"If a new result is to have any value, it must unite elements long since known, but till then scattered and seemingly foreign to each other, and suddenly introduce order where the appearance of disorder reigned." — Wilfred Bion
