Description

A ONE-DAY INTERNATIONAL, MULTIDISCIPLINARY SEMINAR

To celebrate the publication of Clinical Encounters in Sexuality (2017), by Noreen Giffney and Eve Watson, this one-day, international, multi-disciplinary seminar will bring together psychoanalytic clinicians, artists and academic researchers to consider the enduring influence of Sigmund Freud’s Three Essays on the Theory of Sexuality in contemporary clinical and societal understandings of sexuality. It will also explore what queer theories of sexuality might bring to clinical psychoanalysis for work in the consulting room.

The seminar will focus on the following three questions:

1. What is the influence of Sigmund Freud’s ‘Three Essays on the Theory of Sexuality’ on contemporary clinical psychoanalytic practice and psychosocial considerations of sexuality?
2. What might clinical psychoanalysis learn from queer theories of sexuality?
3. What do we mean when we speak of ‘experience’ and ‘encounter’ within the context of practice and theory?
