Psychoanalytic Perspectives on Transgender: From Freud to YouTube | EXTENSION COURSE NINE

Course Coordinator: Elizabeth Tuters | Course Leaders: Lindsay Barton, Sam Semper
presented by tps&i - Toronto Psychoanalytic Society & Institute

Thursday, 7:30 pm – 10:00 pm: May 2, 9, 16, 23, 30, June 6, 2019 (6 evenings)
Fees: $360

Preregistration is required.


The history of the clinical encounter between psychoanalysis and transgender individuals is a difficult one. It is a history marred by the reductive use of Freud’s work in transphobic ways that often amounted to “subtle and brutal […] coercive heteronormatization and pathologization of non-normative sexualities and genders” by psychoanalysts (Gherovici 2011, 3). This has left many trans people justifiably wary of psychoanalysis as a means to understand trans* identities and embodiments.

While acknowledging this deeply problematic legacy, many contemporary psychoanalytic clinicians and thinkers argue that psychoanalysis offers unparalleled tools for understanding the complexity and singularity of subjectivity, including trans subjectivity, when transphobic/normative models of interpretation are recognized and dismantled.

In this seminar participants will engage with contemporary psychoanalytic debates in this area including current approaches to clinical work with trans individuals.

Learning Objectives:

By the end of the course:

• Participants will become familiar with current psychoanalytic literature related to transgender individuals.
• Participants will gain an understanding of specific clinical issues related to working with trans individuals including transitioning (social/medical).
