Fifth Irish Psychoanalytic Film Festival

(An APPI/IFPP/Independent Colleges Event)

Psychoanalysing Irish Cinema

(or, everything you wanted to know about ‘The Irish’ but were afraid to ask Freud)

The Fifth Irish Psychoanalytic Film Festival will take place on 31st Jan/1st February 2014. The object of our psychoanalytic/cinematic scrutiny for this festival will be ‘The Irish’. The notion that the Irish are unanalysable is attributed to Freud, locating ‘The Irish’ together with other unanalysable subjects (‘The Japanese’,‘Lesbians’…) who somehow are beyond or outside the discourse of psychoanalysis.  In Martin Scorsese’s movie The Departed, one of the protagonists, Colin Sullivan remarks that:“What Freud said about the Irish is: We’re the only people who are impervious to psychoanalysis”. William Monahan, screenwriter of The Departed admits that he paraphrased this line which he had come across in various articles, his understanding of the apparent original remark by Freud being: “This is one race of people for whom psychoanalysis is of no use whatsoever.” Although this remark attributed to Freud has never successfully been tracked down in his writings or those of his biographer – the Welshman Ernest Jones – it has become something of an urban myth about ‘The

01 Nov 2013 17:00 : Sligo Balint Symposium

 

BALINT WEEK-END WORKSHOP

 

in

 

SLIGO, WEST of IRELAND, November, 2013

 

Friday November 1st to Sunday November 3rd

 

 

 

The Balint Society takes its name from Psychoanalysts Michael and Enid Balint, who began work in the 1950s to help General Practitioners reach a better understanding of the emotional content of the doctor-patient relationship and so improve their therapeutic potential.

 

We are thus very pleased to announce that the very first Balint Group Method weekend Workshop in the South of Ireland. This is a direct follow on from the very successful ‘launch’ of Balint that took place in Belfast last November.

 

This workshop then will be of interest to many professional groups – including general practitioners, psychotherapists, psychiatrists and psychologists, with or without previous Balint experience – because whilst the method was originally developed with general practitioners in mind it is applicable across a wide range of disciplines and learning contexts.

 

In this framework the core belief is framed upon being able to present one’s concerns, dilemmas, difficulties, “stuckness” with patients / clients in a group context and then sit back and listen as a group of fellow professionals free associate and reflect on what has been presented.

 

Thus the Balint group experience provides a framework for reflecting on our professional practice. The work aims not only to increase therapeutic effectiveness with patients/ clients but also to help develop self-awareness and strengthen the practitioner’s own capacity to manage the stresses and strains involved in such complex work.
