The EuroFederation of Psychoanalysis (EFP) was created in 2010, succeeding the FEEP and the EEP. It is the federation of the four Lacanian Schools of psychoanalysis of the WAP situated within Europe and represents a large community of practitioners oriented by the psychoanalysis of Freud and Lacan, beyond the reach of the Schools. The EFP is attentive to the normative and regulatory pressure exerted on ‘psy’ practices in the various European countries and is committed to defending the particularity of speech practices and the singularity of what each one of us deploys in the therapeutic experience.






L’appel des psychanalystes

contre Marine Le Pen

Créditée de plus du quart des électeurs par les sondages, MLP avec une énumération de propositions qui cache mal le caractère autoritaire de la direction politique qu’elle revendique, s’inscrit dans une filiation politique, le FN, qui appartient à un courant politique de l’histoire de France qui a ravagé et déshonoré le pays, déporté ses citoyens dès leur enfance, et soutenu un discours de haine à l’égard de tout ce qui est différent d’un imaginaire identitaire.

C’est donc une menace pour l’élection présidentielle et pour la démocratie en France et en Europe. C’est aussi une menace pour la psychanalyse. Nous ne pouvions pas nous taire.

Jean-Daniel Matet, président de l’EFP

Call to psychoanalysts to vote against Marine Le Pen and the Party of hate


The so-called “National” Front reduces nationality to ancestors. It makes of it an archaic heritage rather than a choice. It is the current avatar of an age-old counter-revolutionary movement that was once born in hostile reaction to the Enlightenment, the glory of France. This current of ideas has already been in power: it was the Collaboration during the Nazi Occupation. Seeking to experience this a second time is to forget or to ignore the despicable nature of the first.

The elections for the President of the Republic will take place in two rounds, on 23 April and 7 May. Legislative elections will take place on 11 and 18 June. For the last several months, the polls have been putting Marine Le Pen in the lead in the first round of elections. Nothing can exclude the possibility of her winning the second round. Every day we hear the voices of those calling out against this with fear, anxiety, indignation, and revolt.

In fact, Lepenist ideology is a threat to public liberty. It is exacerbating the general tendency towards exclusion, hatred and confrontation. Mme. Le Pen would fracture our society, and the consequences would be disastrous, in a context where the sense of discontent felt by the working class is being exploited by nationalist ideology on a European and worldwide level.

The very possibility of exercising our profession is put into question. There is no psychoanalysis worthy of its name without human rights, without freedom of expression and a free press, without the vital dynamics and breathing space of an open society. This is why we are emerging from our political reserve call upon our fellow citizens to vote with us against the partisans of hate.
