      Seminar on the formation of the analyst

      In this seminar analysts, analysts-in-training and students of the ACP study key texts and research on crucial problems that the training of analysts poses. In 2018 the seminar will continue to address the questions arising from the three components of psychoanalytic formation: personal analysis, supervision of clinical practice, and study and research in psychoanalysis. We shall proceed with the study of Lacan's seminar on the psychoanalytic act and topics related to the relations between psychoanalysis and politics in their relevance to the formation of psychoanalysts.

        All interested colleagues are welcome, but please contact the Convenor before the first meeting to express your interest.
