Event description

Description

This important conference investigates the place of talking therapies in the public understanding of mental health and society.

Psychoanalysis, Values and Webs of Power investigates tensions between professional norms and civic obligations, between 'value neutrality" in clinical practice and the reasoned embrace of social values, between personal ethical stances and the demands of the institutional and cultural milieus we inhabit. Psychoanalysis, in its many forms, can aid us in navigating, or at least illuminating, these vexing and often unrecognized influences, yet at the same time, psychoanalysts themselves must operate within those webs of power, be they cultural, social, institutional, or political. What values matter, or should matter, in psychoanalysis? How can one preserve a degree of meaningful autonomy in institutional settings? When do values interfere with analytical work with clients or in scholarly enterprises?

Psychoanalysis, Values and Webs of Power includes an extraordinary line-up of speakers and panelists:

Keynotes: Peter Barham, Stephen Frosh, Eva Hoffman, Lynne Segal, Valerie Sinason and Eli Zaretsky.

Panels: Lisa Appignanesi, Roger Bacon, David Bell, Michael Chanan, Lynn Chancer, Ian Christie, Fakhry Davids, Em Farrell, Karl Figlio, Christopher Hauke, Robert Hinshelwood, Kurt Jacobsen, Carolyn Laubender, Vicky LeBeau, David Morgan, Ian Parker, Barry Richards, Joanna Ryan, Sabby Sagall, Janet Sayers, Estela Welldon & more.

Organised by The Freud Museum & Free Associations Journal

Registration: £40 - £130
