How do we recognise the unconscious? Exploring Lacan
52/53 High Street
Why attend this day?
Lacanian thought is on the rise in the humanities; these are ideas that seem well equipped to grapple with the deepening complexities of the 21st century. The Lacanian psychoanalytic clinic can also make an offer for our time - cutting a fresh path through the field of 'mental health' - reframing medical diagnoses as questions of subjectivity.
What will it cover?
The focus of the workshop will be the fundamental concept of Freudian and Lacanian psychoanalysis - the unconscious. For Lacan, the unconscious comes from the 'outside' and appears in the disruptions of glitches of language.
Who is this course for?
This course should be interesting and accessible for anyone interested in psychoanalysis, including qualified counsellors and psychotherapists, as well as those in training.
