English Speaking Weekend Conference "Body, Affect, Representation"
The British Psychoanalytical Society presents:
English Speaking Weekend Conference 2018
Body - Affect - Representation
- Psychoanalytic Dialogues -
28-30 September 2018
Royal College of Physicians, London
The conference will explore the vicissitudes of affects and the capacity to develop mental representations in relation to the body, in child and adult analysis. Affects are rooted in the body and profoundly affect the functioning of the body and the mind. The quality and/or lack of the capacity to hold representations is paramount to the functioning of both mind and body. The speakers will explore these issues, focussing on three broad areas: psychosomatics; pain, self-harm and violence: and autism and autistic defences. Two clinical papers will be presented in each of these areas, followed by an open dialogue between the speakers and with the audience.
Christine Anzieu-Premmereur, Catalina Bronstein, Donald Campbell, Maria Rhode, Jonathan Sklar and Megan Virtue
In addition to the main conference on 29 and 30 September, there will be optional clinical seminars and a welcome reception on 28 September as well as a reception at the conference venue on 29 September.
