'Sigmund Freud, Introductory Lectures on Psychoanalysis'

International Psychoanalytical Association (IPA) Congress, 1911 Weimer

Follow Us
The “Introduction to Psychoanalysis” seminars organized by our Association are open to psychiatrists, and psychiatric assistants, clinical psychologists, psychologists, graduate psychology students, and psychological counselors who would like to study primary psychoanalytic texts and who are also interested in the practical application of the psychoanalytic approach in their individual or institutional practice. The seminars, which will be organized for the fourth time this year, will be conducted for two different levels. In the previous years, the “Beginning Psychoanalysis” had explored Sigmund Freud’s theory of psychoanalysis, the encounter between psychoanalytical concepts and clinical practice, the multi dimensionality and diversity of theory and fields of practice through primary psychoanalytic texts with theoretical seminars and presentation of case studies. This year, in order to facilitate the learning of participants just getting acquainted with psychoanalytical theory and treatment, the seminars will follow books by authors who most succinctly and lucidly explore Freud’s psychoanalytic theory.
Additionally, the “Second Step: Case Studies” seminars are designed around case studies in accordance with the demands of participants who have completed Introduction to Psychoanalysis seminars in previous years and would like to pursue more advanced studies.   .
Psychoanalytic theory, defense mechanisms, personality organizations and psychopathology will be explored in the framework of C. Brenner’s An Elementary Textbook of Psychoanalysis, N. McWilliams’s Psychoanalytic Diagnosis and A. Freud’s The Ego and the Mechanisms of Defense, R. Perron’s What is Psychoanalysis?, and V. Volkan’s Psychoanalytic Technique Expanded.
This series, which aims to facilitate an exchange of clinical practice and a discussion of the clinical reflections of theoretical issues, will entail presentations and discussions of case studies shared by participants.
Recommended volumes for further reading:
Sigmund Freud’s Psychopathology of Everyday Life, Interpretation of Dreams, On Metapsychology, and other volumes; Anna Freud’s The Ego and the Mechanisms of Defense; Melanie Klein’s Envy and Gratitude, Love, Guilt and Reparation; C. Brenner’s An Elementary Textbook of Psychoanalysis; N. McWilliams’s Psychoanalytic Diagnosis; Roger Perron’s What is Psychoanalysis?; and Vamık Volkan’s Psychoanalytic Technique Expanded.
The seminars will take place between October 2011 - June 2012.
Sessions will be held Mondays, bimonthly, between 20.00-22.00.
