CFAR offers a series of short courses on themes in Lacanian psychoanalysis. No prior knowledge of Lacan is assumed and the seminars will all include clinical examples involving the kind of problems and questions that are common to diverse currents in contemporary psychotherapy.
Spring Term 2018
Lacanian and non-Lacanian psychoanalytic traditions agree on the importance of unconscious phantasy and that analytic work must aim to access it. But how should this take place? Lacan questioned whether phantasy could ever be interpreted directly, if at all, yet still gave it a central place in his formulations of psychical structure and of the analytic process. So how, then, can it be approached and is interpretation the relevant variable? This course will examine Lacanian perspectives on phantasy with clinical examples, bringing out contrasts and comparisons with other analytic orientations.
