Psychoanalytic ideas about sexual difference are a site of contention. For some, they serve only to create and sustain ideologies of oppression and pathologisation, whereas, for others, they challenge the binaries of biology/culture or nature/nurture and have radical potential.
This workshop offers an opportunity to consider how sexual difference is differently conceptualised by Freud and Lacan, to think about how questions of sexual difference manifest in the contemporary clinic and to explore responses from the 'psychoanalysis or psychotherapy practitioners'.
Day one will consist of small group exercises, a lecture, a case presentation, clinical examples from participants.
Day two will comprise a large group exercise, a talk and clinical presentations on sexual difference and neurosis, plus sexual difference and psychosis. There will be time and opportunity for clinical questions from participants.
By attending this two-day workshop you will have:
- An understanding of Freud’s theory of sexual difference.
- An understanding of Lacan’s theory of sexual difference.
- Participated in an exploration of how questions of sexual difference present in the clinic/consulting room and how they might be understood.
This course is open to psychoanalytic practitioners and trainees.
This course should be interesting and accessible for anyone interested in psychoanalysis, including qualified counsellors and psychotherapists as well as those in training. There is no prior knowledge required. Please note that by booking on this event you agree to keep all discussion confidential.
