Brief Description Of Event: This workshop will be delivered via Zoom online across two Saturdays. Workshop Session 1: 7 May 2022 Workshop Session 2: 14 May 2022
Psychoanalytic ideas about sexual difference are a site of contention. For some, they serve only to create and sustain ideologies of oppression and pathologisation whereas for others they challenge the binaries of biology/culture or nature/nuture and have radical potential.
This workshop offers an opportunity to consider how sexual difference is differently conceptualised by Freud and Lacan, to think about how questions of sexual difference manifest in the contemporary clinic and to explore responses from the ‘psychoanalysis or psychotherapy practitioners’.
