This seminar considers how Schema L is clinically applicable. A diagram such as Lacan’s Schema L provides an invaluable support to psychoanalytic clinical work as the schema maps the imaginary and symbolic axes of transference and pinpoints various positions and moments during an analysis. This seminar with Dan Collins will trace how Schema L orients the development and progress of a clinical case by highlighting psychoanalytic interventions and positions as they are mapped on the diagram. All are welcome, practitioners new and less experienced, and anyone seeking to explore this important conceptual invention of Lacan as it is applied in a clinical case.

Bio: Dan Collins, PhD, MSW, is a psychoanalyst living and working in Buffalo, NY. He is the education director of the Lacan Toronto psychoanalytic group, and there he presents an annual seminar. He is also an overseas member of APPI and the founder of Affiliated Psychoanalytic Workgroups.

There will a group discussion after the speaker’s presentation and seminar participants are invited to contribute and join in.
