Open letter to the Society for Psychotherapy Research

 

A respected international psychotherapy organisation (the Society for Psychotherapy Research) has allowed itself to be used as a willing vehicle for Israeli propaganda, erasing the Palestinians from their own country, and failing to notice the link between such collusion and the devastating impact of the Occupation on the psychological well-being of an oppressed people.
“Jerusalem is a city suspended between heaven and earth, East and West, past and present – parallel universes of flowing caftans and trendy coffee shops. For some people, Jerusalem is a condition, like being in love; for others, it is a state of mind, a constant tension between various faiths and cultures.”

A letter of protest signed by 300 mental health professionals has been published in the print and the on-line editions of the London newspaper The Independent.

Open Letter

We, Psychotherapists, researchers and other mental health professionals, write to express our dismay at the decision of the Society for Psychotherapy Research (SPR) to hold its next international conference in Jerusalem. Israel’s policies in the Occupied Territories, including house demolitions, movement restrictions and imprisonment without trial, cause insecurity, despair, helplessness and humiliation.They create family tension, disrupted child attachment and widespread traumatisation. The calamitous impact of Israel’s Occupation on the psychological health of the Palestinians is well-documented.

This conference would be taking place a short walking distance from neighbourhoods where Palestinians are currently being dispossessed of their homes to make way for Israeli settlements, one among many strategies that pose a threat to their very survival in Jerusalem . SPR’s collective denial – or indifference – is evident in the conference publicity published on its website. Jerusalem is here pictured as ‘a city suspended between heaven and earth, East and West, past and present – parallel universes of flowing caftans and trendy coffee shops’.

We are shocked that, replying to concerns already raised, the organisers consider it adequate to promise to assist Palestinian psychotherapy researchers to attend the Conference. This may ease SPR consciences but it is as nothing weighed against the political message they will be sending by meeting in this beleaguered city.

SPR’s name ought to be synonymous with intellectual honesty, independence, and a courageous resolve to deal with the truth. Hence we call for the conference to be moved to another venue, following the lead given by the World Association of Infant Mental Health in similar circumstances.
