The Czech psychoanalytic society (IPA) invites you to the 2nd Interdisciplinary Conference, which will be dedicated to the legacy of Otto Fenichel. Our conference will be a partial return to 1936, when the 14th Congress IPA – dedicated to the theme of effectiveness of psychoanalytical therapy (which had participation from 198 analysts from around the world) – took part in Mariánské Lázně (Marienbad). Here, Fenichel delivered the paper with which we would like to open the 2nd Conference. Since 1936, more then 60 years have passed, therefore it will be interesting to learn how the theme of psychic change is approached in current psychoanalysis. What are the criteria, concepts and limits of psychic change in different psychoanalytical movements and schools in the 21st century? How has the essence of the goals and therapeutical ambitions of psychoanalysis changed in the last half a century?

As a part of the legacy of Otto Fenichel for us is his interest in external political reality, the conference will also deal with the theme of psychic change from a perspective of medicine, history, sociology and political sciences. We want to pay attention to the phenomenon of an internal change, not only on an individual level, but also in context of institutions, human groups and society as a whole. It is a demanding theme and could be continued in another Fenichel’s Conference, which we aim to organize two years from now. The 2nd conference will also have a Czech section, which will come before the international one (held in the English language).

Says Who? The Struggle for Authority in a Market-based Society
Dany Nobus in Conversation with Paul Verhaeghe
‘We live in an extremely controlling society in which authority has disappeared … traditional authority is lapsing into brute force … and we ourselves must take the first steps towards creating a new social order.’

This was the trenchant diagnosis by Paul Verhaeghe at the end of his acclaimed book about identity, What About Me? Now he returns to investigate another aspect of our lives under threat: authority.

In Says Who? Verhaeghe examines how authority functions and why we need it in order to develop healthy psyches and strong societies. Going against the laissez-faire ethics of a free-market age, he argues that rather than seeing authority as a source of oppression we should invest in developing it in the places that matter. Only by strengthening the power of horizontal groups within existing social structures, such as in education, the economy, and the political system, can we restore authority to its rightful place. Whether you are a parent or child, teacher or student, employer or employee, Says Who? provides the answers you need.

Paul Verhaeghe will give a short lecture, followed by a discussion with Dany Nobus and a Q&A.

How useful are Freud and Lacan’s ideas in the clinic? Part 2


open to public
Organizer: The SITE for Contemporary Psychoanalysis

United Kingdom
>> Website
The Clinical SITE is presenting a series of three interconnected workshops, facilitated by Philip Hill. This introductory series will explore how a Freudian or Lacanian approach differs from others, and will review different and popular clinical techniques and theories in widespread use today, including those of Jung and Klein, and their clinical consequences.

These radically different approaches to clinical work will be compared, looking in particular at their views of diagnosis, interpretation, working with transference and boundaries or limits.

Participants are asked to bring clinical material to share, including direct quotations from clients’ speech. The workshops assume no prior knowledge.

Workshop 2: Saturday 21st October

Plato and Aristotle on sexual identity, popular culture and psychoanalytic theory and technique

What objections would Aristotle have to Kleinian and Jungian theory and clinical technique? Why should we be interested and what difference does theory make to clinical practice?
The view of Heraclitus is that, at best, the cosmos is structured like a rubbish heap. This bothered Plato, who countered with his own highly influential theory that is the prototype of Jung’s and Melanie Klein’s. Plato’s legacy lives on in the theories and clinics of Jungians and Kleinians. How and why do Freudians and Lacanians do things differently, why and what are the consequences for the knowledge of the analyst, and for interpretation?

Transference and Countertransference: Is ‘countertransference’ an idea or phenomenon that is on the same footing as ‘transference’? Is it possible to analyse without relying on countertransference?

Technique and interpretation: What is ‘intuition’, and does it have a privileged role in the clinic? What is the relation of truth to interpretation?

Als Bewunderer dieses hochgradig surrealen, komischen und expressionistischen „Lieblingsfilms“ und Kultfilm des Phantastischen Kinos befinden wir uns in bester Gesellschaft mit Buñuel, Scorsese und Coppola. Der als unverfilmbar geltenden verzwackten Romanvorlage des Abenteurers Graf Potocki entspricht der Regisseur erzähltechnisch durch viele Rückblenden, die er sogar noch mehr verschachtelt als Pasolini in seinen „Erotischen Geschichten aus 1001 Nacht“ und durch die zumindest ein Teil der aberwitzig zahlreichen Romanfiguren und Nebenhandlungen repräsentiert ist. Cybulski, der früh verstorbene Starschauspieler des polnischen Kinos, brilliert in einer seiner berühmtesten Rollen als in der Sierra Morena zur Zeit der Inquisition von spukhaften Kräften herumgetriebener Offizier, der jeden Morgen vom Murmeltier gegrüßt unter einem Galgen mit Gehenkten erwacht. Bei jeder neuen Verschachtelung der Geschichte in die Tiefe wächst die Lust des mitdelirierenden Zuschauers, während gegen Ende, beim Auftauchen aus ihr, die Angst steigt, dieser Film mit beträchtlicher Überlänge könne jemals enden.

Making us Great Again? A Psychoanalytic Discussion of Populism

Presenters: Leon Hoffman, M.D. and Coline Covington, Ph.D., B.P.C.

The presenters will discuss the political dynamics of populism from a psychoanalytic perspective. They will stress the group’s sense of vulnerability and fear and the powerful role the populist leader plays for the group within this psychological state. A charismatic leader is chosen who promises to make the group powerful, perverting the truth by promoting “alt-facts” which fit into the fantasy life of the leader and group. Two approaches are discussed: (1) understanding how vulnerable groups attempt to deal with traumatic experiences by utilizing maladaptive defense mechanisms, such as denial and projection, in order to protect themselves from unbearable negative emotions and (2) understanding that when a large group’s survival and identity are under threat, individual mindfulness is dissolved in the service of defending against the experience of loss and trying to restore a sense of potency within the group.

Using a particular film, Morvern Callar, (Dir. Lynne Ramsay,2002) to reflect on the impact of the counter-transference, I suggest that film, with its capacity to communicate intense emotional and pre-verbal states, can make sense of certain key psychoanalytic concepts via a direct emotional experience. The discussion will outline the way a psychological mechanism vital in normal development may then be used when at a later stage someone is confronted with situations of trauma and loss.

Who’s afraid of Melanie Klein

Bob Hinshelwood

ABSTRACT: Did you ever wonder about outcome studies for Shakespeare’s Hamlet? -- or the cost-effectiveness of Star Wars? Well psychoanalysis is a bit like that, too. This talk will be about the nature of psychoanalysis as a way of thinking about human beings and their experiences. Since the nineteenth century models of physics and physiology on which Freud based his theories, we have increasingly moved towards more object relations models of therapeutic work, and for understanding the working of the mind. At the same time, our wider social culture has tended to move in the opposite direction and to embrace more objective measures than subjective impressions. I will try to contrast the two diverging trends in psychoanalysis and psychoanalytic psychotherapy, and draw out some of the contemporary problems for the acceptance of psychoanalytic ideas and work

Bob Hinshelwood is Emeritus Professor at the University of Essex. He is a Fellow of the British Psychoanalytical Society, and a Fellow of the Royal College of Psychiatrists. He has published a number of books on Kleinian psychoanalysis, and on the importance of psychoanalysis in the public services.

21st Annual Day in Applied Psychoanalysis

Between Hours: Interdisciplinary Dialogues, Applied Psychoanalysis Programme of the Toronto Psychoanalytic Society,
Gender through the Looking Glass: Whose perspective? Gender Fluidity in Culture, Literature, and Psychoanalysis – Contemporary Viewpoints

Paul Lynch,MD – Psychoanalyst, Boston
Emma Donoghue, PhD – Acclaimed Irish-Canadian Writer/Literary Historian
Sheila Cavanagh, PhD – Associate Professor, Sociology, Toronto
Oren Gozlan, PsyD – Clinical Psychologist/Psychoanalyst
Marco Posadas, MSW – Clinical Social Worker/Psychoanalyst

By crossing the gender divide, the shared, lived experience of people of transgender identity has infiltrated
mainstream consciousness and radicalized questions surrounding gender. What does it mean to be a man or
a woman? How fluid an experience IS gender?

This symposium will look at the way in which the concept of gender fluidity informs developmental
considerations of gender identity and gendered identifications; how it both supports a progressive
understanding of gender, while presenting a challenge to the notions of binary gender ingrained in the
social order. How do we respond to shifting gender mores and previously unthought possibilities of gender
change? Is psychoanalysis ready for such a transition? We will explore these questions through case
material and characters in literary fiction.

Join us for an inspiring day of dialogue from the interweaving perspectives of literary, sociological, and psychoanalytic thinkers.
