Love, Narcissism and Sexual Fantasy 

An evening workshop with Dr Christopher Clulow

London, 1 December 2017, 6:30pm – 9:00pm

 

The nature of love has perplexed and preoccupied us all at different stages of our lives. Our works as therapists calls upon us to consider multiple aspects of love, distinguishing between the fantasy-rich but passive state of being ‘in love’ (a condition that Freud described as a temporary psychosis and subsequent psychoanalysts have compared with borderline states of mind) – and the more active process of loving another person, with the assumption of relational alterity that this implies.

At this interactive workshop that would be relevant for psychotherapists, clinical psychologists and counsellors, Dr Clulow considers love and sexual fantasy in the context of developmental processes. Combining Attachment-based approaches with object relations/relational perspectives, the workshop looks at:

 

  • Aspects of love
    • the intoxicating experience of being in love;
    • dimensions of loving;
    • narcissistic aspects of partner choice
    • Love and sexual fantasy
      • tensions between love and sexuality;
      • functions of sexual fantasy in love relationships;
      • implications for clinical practice

 

Dr Christopher Clulow is a Consultant Couple Psychoanalytic Psychotherapist, registered with the British Psychoanalytic Council, and a Senior Fellow of Tavistock Relationships, London. He has published extensively on marriage, partnerships, parenthood and couple psychotherapy, most recently from an attachment perspective. His two edited books in this area are Adult attachment and couple psychotherapy: The ‘secure base’ in practice and research (2001, Brunner-Routledge) and Attachment, sex and couple psychotherapy: Psychoanalytic perspectives (2009, Karnac). His most recent co-authored book, Couple therapy for depression: A clinician’s guide to integrative practice, was published by Oxford University Press in 2014. He is a Fellow of the Centre for Social Policy, Dartington, a member of the editorial board of Couple and Family Psychoanalysis and an international editorial consultant for Sexual and Relationship Therapy.  He maintains a clinical and training practice from his home in St Albans and also in London.
