"International Psychoanalytical Meetings of Istanbul" are organized by Istanbul Psychoanalytical Association in November every year. The first of these meetings took place in 1999, and like most activities of Istanbul Psychoanalytical Association, they became a tradition assuming an important place in the field of psychoanalysis throughout the country.Every year, the event is organized around a specific theme, on which guests from abroad as well as psychoanalysts and artists from Turkey make presentations. Themes discussed during the two days of the meetings are chosen from among ongoing debates in psychoanalysis. The idea to collect the presentations in a book was first suggested in 2005, and the presentation texts of the 5-6 November 2004 meetings on “psychosis” were printed during the same year. After the 2007 publication of the Psychoanalytic Meetings on the theme of “Femininity”, it was decided that meeting texts be published under the name "Psychoanalytic Meetings". Since then, the texts of the presentations have been published a couple of years after the year of the meeting.
