English Speaking Weekend Conference: Body – Affect – Representation

This conference will explore the vicissitudes of affects and the capacity to develop mental representations in relation to the body, in both adult and child analysis. Affects are rooted in the body and profoundly affect the functioning of the body and the mind. The quality and/or lack of the capacity to hold representations is paramount to the functioning of both mind and body. The speakers will explore these issues, focussing on three broad areas: psychosomatics; pain, self-harm and violence; and autism and autistic defences. Two clinical papers will be presented in each of these areas, followed by an open dialogue between the speakers and with the audience.

The Repression and Abandonment of Oedipus: The role of the Oedipal situation in mental distress and disorder

 Depression Conf Wilkins Building Image

Start: Nov 30, 2018 03:30 PM
Ende: Dec 02, 2018 01:30 PM

Ort: University College London

Conference Abstract

All psychoanalysts must struggle with a tendency to forget, to neglect or to under-estimate the power of the Oedipal situation and the many positions possible in its triangular relationships. However, particularly at times of crisis or developmental transitions, or when childhood events have served to confirm the imagined effects of oedipal impulses, or when incest taboos have been transgressed, they have major expressions and consequences for an individual’s mental life, development and relationships. The topic of the 2018 UCL Psychoanalysis Conference is how we think about oedipal issues and their inescapability in the analytic situation, in development, in mental distress and disorder, and in life in general.

IPA 51st Congress London 2019

IPA 51st Congress London 2019The feminine

Psychoanalytic theory and practice both have
a part to play in addressing the question of ‘the feminine’. Our goal for thi s Congress is to focus on issues that affect the everyday life and experiences of both women and men.
Since the late nineteenth century, concerns and
problems related to the female condition, which were previously normalised or silenced, have become increasingly visible in different cultures.
