Tuesday evenings, 6.30pm – 7.45pm
April 22, 29; May 6, 13, 20, 27; June 2, 9 2014
This series of eight lectures examines the theoretical development of psychoanalytic thinking through the work of Freud, Klein, Bion, Lacan and Winnicott. The lectures provide an introduction to the principal concepts of psychoanalysis, the most fundamental being that of the unconscious, which proposes that there are feelings, wishes and phantasies that lie outside our awareness. The course considers how psychoanalytic thinking can offer a way of understanding human experience and human suffering, and how it functions as a treatment that privileges the uniqueness and individuality of each person. It looks at dreaming, relationships, and creativity, examines the impact of loss and trauma and the particular patterns that emerge from childhood and continue to affect our lives throughout adulthood.
Seminar Fee: €145
