The Centre for Lacanian Analysis Aotearoa New Zealand warmly invites you to Lacan to the Letter -July 2019, a reading with Dr Kaye Cederman.
The reading for this seminar is “Note on the Child” (Lacan, 1969), which is regarded by Lacanian psychoanalysts as highly relevant to our analytic work with all subjects, children, adolescents and adults alike.
Lacan’s theorising that the child’s symptom reflects what is
symptomatic in the family structure is however especially important as a guiding principle in our work with children. He wrote that “the child’s symptom ... can represent the truth of the parental couple” ( 1969, p.373). This reading is basic to our clinical work, for example the importance of finding out about the parents as individuals, determining the fantasy of each parent, that of the child and the links between them.
Further reading if you have an interest-
“The mirror stage as formative of the I function as revealed in psychoanalytic experience” (Ecrits, 2006/1966, translator Bruce Fink, pp 75-82)
