Extension COURSE ONE - Lacan from the Beginnings

Course Coordinator and Leader: Judith Hamilton
presented by tps&i

Thursday, 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm: September 23, 30, October 7, 14, 21, 2021. (5 sessions)
Fees: $300
Deadline for registration is September 16, 2021
Preregistration is required.

** DISTANCE PARTICIPATION ONLY – This course will be conducted online.

This course is offered for those who know little about the French psychoanalyst Jacques Lacan, who would like an introduction that begins with the earliest concepts he developed – the signifier, the three registers, the unconscious structured like a language, desire, the big Other – and which provides examples of their relevance to the clinical practice of psychodynamic/psychoanalytic psychotherapy. The evolution of his theory over 27 years and the related clinical approaches will be presented in the context of other psychoanalytic theories and cultural developments of the 20th century, including contemporary Lacanian theory and practices. It is hoped that this course will provide enough depth to prepare those who wish to go on studying Lacanian theory and practice, and enough breadth for those who want to be able to include the benefits of early, middle, and late Lacanian concepts in their clinical work. Readings will be suggested, and discussion will be welcomed.

Learning Objectives:
At the end of the course the participants will be able to:

List, define and elaborate on the main concepts of Lacanian theory and practice.
Relate the main concepts to clinical practice, both overall goals of treatment and in specific instances of practice.
Explore further and discuss the significance of Lacan’s contribution to the fields of psychoanalysis and cultural aspects of the contemporary world.
