About the Event

The IFPP are delighted to welcome Jamieson Webster for a seminar on the 18th May 2024 that asks: Why do we return to the case of Dora again and again? How can it be that after decades of work on Dora, so many advances in relation to the question of feminism and psychoanalysis, there is still more to learn from this case of a teenage girl at the turn of the century? Lacan turns to Freud’s A Fragment of an Analysis of a Case of Hysteria (1905) every time he re-elaborates aspects of his thinking. In fact, Lacan called himself an hysteric, walking about on stage speaking, performing, clowning around, not knowing what he was saying or where he was going. He placed his audience into the role of the analyst-listener:

Freud’s text on Dora…is even more astounding for the double face it presents. On the one hand there are the weaknesses and inadequacies that strike novices as the first items to be pointed up, but on the other hand there is the depth that is reached by everything Freud comes up against, revealing to what extent he was right there, turning around the very field we are trying to map out. (Lacan 1972-73, 108)

I think Dora will always be important for psychoanalysis, to reignite desire for listening to the conundrums of desire, to re-find our co-ordinates that we map and remap with every patient.

This two-day event interrogates the relationship between psychoanalysis and colonialism within the context generated by the film The Secrets from Putumayo – a Brazilian documentary revealing Roger Casement’s role in witnessing and documenting the atrocities committed against the native people in the Amazon.

The event is interdisciplinary and includes speakers and scholars from the fields of psychoanalysis, history, film, and Latin American studies. In particular, we question the effects of bearing witness to difficult/tragic and painful events and the variety of potential responses available to the human subject, ranging from denial to revolution.

This ethic(s) of bearing witness is also related to the medium of film. We argue that certain films call us to action or ask us to bear something through the act of watching, through being present to a ‘reality’ we may not ordinarily encounter. Furthermore, we ask whether psychoanalysis has historically contributed to outdated and biased notions of the unknown and uncivilised and how it may be relevant today to the task and discourse of decolonisation.

On Friday evening’s discussion, we are delighted to include among distinguished guests the Ambassador to the Embassy of Brazil, Marcel Biato.

Foundation Course in Group Analysis 2024/2025

Foundation Course In Group Analysis 2024 – Weekend Training Programme

Have you ever sat in a group and wondered what is going on?  We are often at a loss as to what might be going on in the dynamics of groups, especially when difficulties arise as they always do! This one-year course is open to people who are interested in deepening their understanding of group dynamics in both personal and professional settings, and learning about the potential applications of group analysis in clinical and/or organisational contexts. The Foundation Course is also the first step in the requirement towards the clinical training in Group Analytic Psychotherapy.

Drawing on theories of founding pioneer in Group Analysis, S.H. Foulkes, who was always of the view that individuals can only be understood in the context of their groups, this experiential foundation training develops an in-depth understanding of how group dynamics influence the individual and how the individual’s dynamics influence the group. The training also explores the ‘unconscious’ dynamics in groups.

This well regarded and long running training programme is offered in block format over nine weekends from September 2024 – June 2025.

The main elements of the programme are experiential, both in small and large groups and also through theory, work discussion and case study groups. If you are interested in finding out more, information briefings will be held via ZOOM and in-person from the School of Psychotherapy, St. Vincent’s University Hospital, Elm Park, Dublin 4 in association with UCD School of Medicine Psychotherapy Programmes on:

  • Wednesday 20th March 2024 6:30pm – 8pm (Zoom)

Disparate is the term I have chosen to address the question of the difference between the sexes, or better still, the difference that sex introduces into the speaking being. It’s also the question raised by the topicality of ‘trans’ discourse and sexual gender. Are we, with trans discourses, in the age of disparate genders? In fact, we could say that for psychoanalysis we are still, and always will be, in the era of the irreducible disparity of the sexes. The question is rather what kind of disparity we are talking about.

Miquel Bassols is a psychoanalyst, Analyst Member of the School (AMS) of the ELP (Spain), the ECF (France) and the WAP (World Association of Psychoanalysis). He holds a PhD from the Department of Psychoanalysis at the University of Paris VIII and teaches at the Institute of the Freudian Field of Barcelona. Previously Chair of the World Association of Psychoanalysis, he has lectured extensively throughout Europe and the USA.

He has published numerous articles/papers and also translated (in Catalan) Lacan’s Lituraterre (2021) accompanied by a commentary. In addition, he regularly publishes various texts and readings on psychoanalysis and literature on the blog Desescrits.

He has written many books including: La psicoanàlisi explicada als mitjans de comunicació (1997) La interpretación como malentendido (2001) Finales de análisis (2007) Llull con Lacan. El amor, la palabra y la letra en la psicosis (2010) Lecturas de la página en blanco. La letra y el objeto (2011) El caballo del pensamiento (2011) Tu Yo no es tuyo. Lo real del psicoanálisis en la ciencia (2011) A psicanálise, a ciência, o real (2015) La diferencia de los sexos no existe en el inconsciente (2021)

The Place of the Gaze

The Place of the Gaze

Towards the NLS Congress 2024

Date: 8 March 2024

A seminar by Miquel Bassols on the theme of the forthcoming NLS Congress.

It is known that there are two new objects that Lacan adds to the classic Freudian series of the oral, the anal and the phallic object. These two new objects are the gaze and the voice.

The gaze is an object even more immanent, more evanescent, than the voice, much more immanent even than the maternal breast or excrement. We can record the voice in a material medium (now, for example, in a digital medium), but it is difficult to think about how to locate the gaze in some medium. And yet, we must emphasise the preeminent place of the gaze in our world and in the current clinic, especially when we address the massive presence of screens and the space of virtual reality in which a good part of our activities take place. Today the gaze is at the very core of the subject’s relationship with his body and his jouissance.

Following this perspective, we will talk about the place of the gaze in some moments of Lacan’s teaching.

Miquel Bassols is a psychoanalyst, Analyst Member of the School (AMS) of the ELP (Spain), the ECF (France) and the WAP (World Association of Psychoanalysis).

Vision as an Event in the Experience of Psychoanalysis (26 January)

Vision as an Event in the Experience of Psychoanalysis – Clotilde Leguil

A seminar exploring the theoretical and clinical implications of vision as an event in a Lacanian psychoanalytic experience.

Date: Friday 26 January 2024

Time: 7pm – 9pm GMT

Location: Trinity College Dublin

Cost: From €22.42

About This Event

In what sense can we say that vision – in Lacan’s sense – truly constitutes an event in psychoanalysis? Between shadow and light, darkness and dazzle, the experience of the unconscious is an experience of “seeing” and “not seeing.” If the analysand begins by realising that he does not see the cause of what is happening to him in his life, he comes to confront himself with a blind spot of his destiny. The experience of “being blinded,” of “seeing nothing,” of “seeing blurred,” or of “being dazzled,” all represent different modalities of relating to the unconscious in terms of “seeing.”

Vision as an event would then coincide with that moment when the unconscious-light, “that which leaves no room for shadow” as Lacan wrote in 1967 (Autres écrits, p. 334), is encountered in an unprecedented way. Where I used to blink, dazzled by too much light, I come to be able to see what I had never seen before. I come to read that which left its trace and could not be revealed at first. The final vision is an event. At last I can read the cipher of my destiny. At last, the lost letter has reached its destination.

Clotilde Leguil, École de la Cause freudienne (ECF), World Association of Psychoanalysis (WAP). A psychoanalyst and philosopher, she is a lecturer in the Department of Psychoanalysis at the University of Paris VIII-Saint-Denis. Author of numerous texts, her most recent publications are L’ère du toxique (2023) and Céder n’est pas consentir (2021).Previous works include: Les Amoureuses, voyage au bout de la féminité (Seuil, 2009), which won the 2010 Prix Œdipe des libraires, and « Je », une traversée des identités ( Puf, 2018). She prefaced the new translations of Freud published by Éditions du Seuil (2010-2011) and contributed to L’Anti-livre noir de la psychanalyse, edited by Jacques-Alain Miller (Seuil, 2006).
