Sexual Difference from Freud to Lacan and its clinical consequences with Anne Worthington - Online Workshop

Course description

This workshop will be delivered via Zoom across two Saturdays, 2.5h each day.

Workshop Session 1: 7 May 2022
Workshop Session 2: 14 May 2022

Time:10-1 pm

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/nutureand 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.
