Description

About the Workshop

What is the place of the body in psychoanalytic theory and practice? After examining Freud's biological destiny of anatomical difference and Lacan's mirror body image the workshop will dwell on the body as Dolto conceives it: a "sensing" activity which gives "sense" to both our psychic and symbolic world...and beyond".
