The choice of this theme was positively welcomed by the members of IFDA– INTERNATIONAL FEDERATION OF DASEINSANALYSIS.

Talking about the Daseinsanalytic practice proves to be essential.

Many are Heidegger's readers who nowadays are engaged in a therapeutic practice based on Daseinsanalysis.

Binswanger and Boss are the initiators of this movement, although with different purposes: Binswanger trying to understand psychiatric cases phenomenologically and existentially and Boss, also phenomenologically and existentially, oriented towards Psychotherapy.

Medard Boss, with the collaboration of Martin Heidegger in the seminars of Zollikon, establishes the basis of Daseinsanalysis as a psychotherapy practice.

The International Forum of Daseinsanalysis intends to promote the reunion of Daseinsanalysts from different parts of the world, in a dialogue that can go through with the task started in Switzerland in the first half of the past century.

The contemporary world, so well described in its groundings by Heidegger, lacks a comprehension mode of the human beyond traditional theories.

The X International Forum of Daseinsanalysis is an invitation to this debate, to this construction of a broader description of the Daseinsanalytic thinking legacy.
