Without Freud, there would be no psychoanalysis in the Lacanian field. Familiarity with Freudian texts is vital to reading Lacan. The Centre for Lacanian Analysis is offering this one year introductory course in the fundamentals of psychoanalysis to all those who hold an interest in psychoanalysis. The course is also an important introduction to those whose desire is towards applying as a candidate in the clinical training in psychoanalysis offered by the CLA in the 2021 intake. The 8 evenings will employ a close reading of a specific Freudian text with the aim of developing an understanding of key Freudian concepts. The cost of the course is $320 or $160 for the unwaged. Free to members of the CLA. It is essential to register. To do so, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
The first evening, titled 'Finding the Talking Cure', will take place on Friday 28 February from 7–9.30 pm at the Ellen Melville Centre. An outline and reading list will be provided to all those who register.
