WWII and THE 
FIRST CONFERENCE

The first Friends Conference on Religion and Psychology was held over Easter weekend in 1943 at the Friends Meeting House in Haddonfield, New Jersey in the shadow of WWII.   Elined Kotschnig, one of the founding members, would later recall: “Gradually out of the very extremity of the darkness, pinpoints of light and understanding were seen glimmering here and there in a counter movement to the

vortex of devasta- tion and degrada- tion we had been sucked down into.”
