Keeping Connected

Keeping Connected Friday 29th of September
7-9 pm
Cost: 10 at the door
Venue: bpf, 37 Mapesbury Road, London NW2 4HJ

During this academic year, the British Psychoanalytic Association Outreach team will present five workshops around the five Introductory Lectures that Sigmund Freud gave in the USA in the early years of the twentieth century.

These short papers give a quick peek into the beginnings of psychoanalysis, as Freud was discovering how the mind worked at the start of his psychoanalytic writing. We will try to ensure all participants have a copy of the relevant paper for the workshop, and we will attempt to become familiar with the vital psychoanalytic concepts that he laid out in 1910; which are as relevant today as when he wrote them. The First Introductory lecture will be led by Jan Harvie-Clark. Jan is a Senoir Member and a Training Analyst with the BPA.

The event will begin with some refreshments, and the workshop will begin at 7.30pm
Please let us know if you intend to attend by emailing name and contact details in advance to Jan Harvie-Clark.
