CPS Life

The War in Ukraine: response from the Canadian Psychoanalytic Society

The CPS-SCP Executive is shocked, horrified and concerned by the war and humanitarian crisis resulting from the Russian invasion of Ukraine. We oppose the unthinkable aggressive attacks that are instantly traumatizing – both physically and mentally – the people of Ukraine. We call for the immediate cessation of hostilities, and for a peaceful and mediated solution to the conflict.

CPS Anti-Racism Statement

The CPS stands for the unique humanity of each person, emphatically opposed to intolerance of otherness. We deplore entrenched systemic racism as well as hate based on gender or sexuality and the accompanying overt or covert violence.
