Freud: An introduction to his work and key ideas
This workshop will be delivered via Zoom online.
Freud’s ideas have permeated our everyday lives. We find him referenced on TV, in movies, in literature. But who was he and what did he really say? Are his ideas relevant to us now or have we moved on?
During this workshop, we will explore the basic key psychoanalytic theory of unconscious, theory of dreams and sexuality, think about the theory of errors and try to understand Freud’s contribution to human inter-relational conduct in society.
By the end of the session you will have:
- Gained an in-depth understanding of the psychic mechanisms of forgetfulness.
- Some insight relating to working with trauma in clinical settings.
- Developed some understanding of the theory of neurosis.
- Be able to think about the connection between trauma, birth and personality.
During the workshop, there will be clinical presentations to contextually explore key theoretical concepts. Small group activities will also be used to enhance participation and learning.
