This seminar proposes to think psychoanalytically about symptoms of hate such as racism, discrimination and exclusion. After the Covid-19 pandemic and the growing awareness of violent discrimination, structural racism, and the impact of the Black Lives Matter movement, it seems that no analyst can be immune to the cultural context in which they work. It seems unavoidable to take a position.
In her presentation, guest discussant, Patricia Gherovici, will address questions such as: How is the current socio-political context affecting our patients and how do we work with this in clinical practice? How might the analyst's biases impede the treatment? How does that affect the ideal of neutrality? Is it enough to be aware of our unconscious racism and prejudices like heterosexism or gender normativity? How can we help psychoanalysis to develop and thrive in our currently conflicted situation?
There will a group discussion after the speaker's presentation and seminar participants are invited to contribute and join in.
Registration Fee: €25 eu. Those with difficulty with the fee can write to firstname.lastname@example.org Registrants will be sent a zoom link shortly before the seminar begins.
2 CPD points will be awarded by APPI (Association for Psychoanalysis and Psychotherapy in Ireland).
