The Psychoanalytic Studies programme offers the opportunity to attend and participate in all relevant CFAR lectures, seminars and activities that form part of the training programme, with the exception of the specific category of ‘clinical seminars’.
Seminars this term include: “Feelings”, “The Unconscious from Freud to Lacan”, “Affects in Freud”, “An Ontology from Discourse: Lacan and Heidegger ”, “The Oedipus Complex from Freud to Lacan”, “Emotional Contagion, or, How are Feelings Communicated?”, “Transference and Interpretation”, “The Mirror Phase”, “Art and Psychoanalysis”, “The Real, The Symbolic and the Imaginary”, “Love, Hate and Ignorance”, “The Panic Attack”, “Psychoanalysis and Climate Change” and “Identification”.
Every therapeutic relation involves transference, but how has this concept evolved during the history of psychoanalysis? And how have the changes in the theory of transference had an effect on theories of interpretation? Most clinicians who work psychoanalytically agree that the transference needs to be interpreted, but at what moment? And what of the Lacanian critique of transference interpretation? This course will examine these questions from a Lacanian perspective, combining theoretical exposition with clinical examples.
