By Irish Forum for Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy (IFPP)

The IFPP are delighted to host this in person event with Mary Pyle who will present her recent doctoral theses.

View Flyer

Marys doctoral thesis was based on exploring the unconscious reasons why the series appeals not just to the teenage group which it is aimed at, but is enjoyed by much younger children as well as adults of all ages. I approach the question from the object relations stance, in particular basing it on the ideas of Winnicott. Linking psychoanalysis and literature is not new but this brings in a new dimension.

Mary’s primary degree was in English Literature which she subsequently taught to university entrance level. Later she trained in psychoanalysis which she has practised and taught for many years. She five original members of the Irish Forum for Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy (IFPP) and later a member of the group which established the Irish Institute of Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy (IIPP). She has returned to English Literature and completed her doctorate on ‘Harry Potter and the Unconscious Dimension’ in 2022.

Psychoanalysis & Revolution in Ireland

Psychoanalysis & Revolution in Ireland By Nigel Mulligan

‘Psychoanalysis & Revolution in Ireland’ is a response to the growing mental – health and ‘cost of greed’ crisis that Ireland is facing now.

Psychoanalysis & Revolution in Ireland

Date: Thursday 6 July 2023

Time: 7pm – 9pm

Location: Online

Cost: €22.42

Book via Eventbrite

‘Psychoanalysis and Revolution in Ireland’ is a symposium that responds to the growing mental – health and ‘cost of greed’ crisis that Ireland is currently experiencing. In their 2021 manifesto ‘Psychoanalysis and Revolution: Critical Psychology for Liberation Movements’, authors Ian Parker and David Pavón-Cuéllar critique the ideological framework that sustains the patriarchal capitalistic system that is the major cause of both people’s inner personal battles and growing social ills. The importance of their manifesto, which serves as the foundational text for this symposium, is exemplified by the many languages into which it has been translated: See this website to find out more – Psychoanalysis and Revolution.

Accordingly, we aim to discuss not only the significance of its translation into Gaeilge but also how we can implement some of its revolutionary aims. In this way, the event seeks to utilise psychoanalytic theory to activate the political dimensions of people’s lives for both personal liberation and sustained social transformation.

The proceeds of this symposium will hopefully cover the costs of completing the translation to Gaeilge. The Irish artist and revolutionary Jim Fitzpatrick has generously permitted us to use his famous image of socialist and one of the signatories of the proclamation James Connolly (see above).

If you would like to donate to the cause of this translation you can donate here – Psychoanalysis & Revolution-Translation to Gaeilge.

The Ideology Trap (YouTube) (Nigel Mulligan)

“The unconscious, which we assume to be so deep and hidden inside each one of us is, itself, something outside that speaks of otherness. It is made of history, economy, society, culture, and ideology. It is a space for encounters and disagreements with others, explanations and contradictions that are debated with them, alliances, and conflicts between comrades in struggle, persuasion, and misunderstanding. It appears in the field of language we share with others.” (Parker and Pavón-Cuéllar, 2021, p. 35)

The Psychodynamics of Social Media with Dr Aaron Balick

The Psychodynamics of Social Media with Dr Aaron Balick

Date: Saturday 1 July

Time: 10am – 12pm

Location: Online

Cost: €15 – €40

Book via Eventbrite

By Irish Forum for Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy (IFPP)

Social media can be understood as a psychological extension of the self into the digital world. This extension of self is both real and meaningful. The way in which online social platforms mediate selves has important consequences for individuals, interpersonal relationships, and for society as a whole. Drawing on his 2014 The Psychodynamics of Social Networking, as well as research and thinking he has developed further in the intervening years, Dr. Balick will share the highlights of what therapists should know about these important topics. Dr. Balick deploys theories from Relational Psychoanalysis and applies them to understanding the intrapsychic and interpersonal dynamics that are activated and conveyed by different forms of social media as well as the socio-cultural contexts in which they are happening. This event will consist of a lecture covering the major themes with plenty of time for questions and discussion to follow.

Agenda

  • 10am – 11am: Seminar
  • 11am – 12pm: Q&A/Discussion

Ticket Prices

  • Early Bird Ticket (until 17/06/2023) €30.00
  • Full Price Ticket €40.00
  • Student Early Bird Ticket (until 17/06/2023) €15.00
  • Student Full Price €20.00

The Teleanalytic Environment with Jill Savege Scharff

The Teleanalytic Environment with Jill Savege Scharff

Date: Friday 26 May

Time: 7:30pm – 9pm

Location: Online

Cost: €15 – €40

Book via Eventbrite

The IFPP are delighted to host a seminar with Dr Jill Scharff on the use of technology to practice psychotherapy in an online world.

Presentation and Interactive Discussion with Dr Jill Scharff

The social isolation and uncertainties of the Covid-19 pandemic created a crisis in mental health. In response, psychotherapists and psychoanalysts had to turn to telephone or videoconference technology to allow for continuity of patient care, although many of them had been against the use of technology as a degradation of clinical care, and were unprepared for the shift in practice. Now there is widespread experience of psychoanalysis and psychotherapy online, and plenty of literature on the challenges of working online with patients. Dr. Scharff will describe this change in the global psychotherapeutic online environment and will discuss the pros and cons of the teletherapy setting with emphasis on adaptation to the lack of bodily co-presence, and the experience of closeness and distance. She aims to develop a conversation and respond to local concerns. She will conclude with a reflection on what the future holds.

Jill Savege Scharff Md FABP is the co-founder of the International Psychotherapy Institute (IPI) www.theipi.org where she serves as a supervising analyst in its analytic program, the International Institute for Psychoanalytic Training of which she was the founding chair, and in the IPI Combined Child Analytic and Child Psychotherapy Training program. She is the editor of a four-volume series Psychoanalysis Online. Dr Scharff has a private practice in psychoanalysis and psychotherapy with children, adolescents, adults, couples and families in Chevy Chase MD, USA.

A recording will be available for ticket holders for 30 days after the event ends.

Psychoanalysis Meets Virtual Reality

Psychoanalysis Meets Virtual Reality

Date: Friday, 23 June 2023

Time: 9am – 5pm BST

Location: The Institute Of Group Analysis, 1 Daleham Gardens, London NW3 5BY, United Kingdom

Cost: From £22.38

Book via Eventbrite

A one-day event using a series of group activities to reflect on our individual & collective experience of virtual reality By The Association for Psychosocial Studies

Psychoanalysis Meets Virtual Reality

‘Psychoanalysis Meets Virtual Reality’, an upcoming theoretical-experiential event convened by Dr Noreen Giffney (Psychoanalytic Psychotherapist, and Ulster University, Belfast), Prof Lynn Froggett (University of Central Lancashire and Chair of the Association for Psychosocial Studies), Prof Jill Bennett (Director of the Big Anxiety Research Centre and the felt Experience & Empathy Lab at the University of New South Wales, Sydney) and Dr Gail Kenning (The Big Anxiety Research Centre and the felt Experience & Empathy Lab at the University of New South Wales, Sydney).

The event will take place at the Institute of Group Analysis (IGA) in London on Friday 23 June at 9am-5pm. It is sponsored by the Association for Psychosocial Studies (APS), the Big Anxiety Research Centre (BARC), the felt Experience & Empathy Lab (fEEL), Psychoanalysis +, the UCLan Psychosocial Research Unit, and the Institute of Group Analysis in London.

There is a significant amount of work happening at the interface between research on mental health and Virtual Reality (VR), Augmented Reality (AR) and Mixed Reality (MR). This work brings together artists, curators, clinical practitioners, patient advocates, academics, and activists. VR, AR, and MR make use of arts-based technologies to facilitate individuals having an immersive sensuous experience by means of wearing a headset. This event will include an individual VR experience, Perinatal Dreaming (fEEL 2023), which will be launched at the event. This will be followed by a number of small and large group activities to help us to reflect on, and talk about, our individual and collective encounters with Perinatal Dreaming. We will also have an opportunity to hear from Prof Jill Bennett and Dr Gail Kenning about their work, and discuss what VR, AR and MR might offer psychoanalysis and vice versa. We will consider the importance of VR, AR, and MR experiences within the context of arts and mental health projects more broadly. The emphasis will be on experience, reflection, and conversation throughout the day.

What kinds of feelings might be evoked and/or contained while engaging in VR, AR, and MR experiences? How might our engagement with VR, AR and MR experiences help us to become more aware of, and reflective about, the operation of introjection and projection? Might VR, AR and MR have a place in our clinics and/or as part of our clinical training programmes? What, in particular, might the Perinatal Dreaming VR experience contribute to our thinking about the long-term impact of early life experiences? How might our participation in group activities, underpinned by psychoanalytic thinking, help us to make meaning of our individual encounters with the Perinatal Dreaming VR experience? These questions will frame our event.

Registration

Contact Dr Noreen Giffney (n.giffney@nullulster.ac.uk) and Prof Lynn Froggett (LFroggett@nulluclan.ac.uk) for further details about registration fees and how to register. Places are limited so early registration is advised. This is an in-person event only; it will not be possible to attend online. It will not be recorded.

The Ethics of Inisherin: Seminar on Ethics of Psychoanalysis w/Calum Neill

The Ethics of Inisherin: Seminar on Ethics of Psychoanalysis w/Calum Neill

Date: Saturday, 6th May 2023

Time: 10am – 1pm

Location: Royal Marine Hotel, Marine Road, Dún Laoghaire, Dublin A96 K063

Cost: From €43.87

Book via Eventbrite

The Ethics Of Inisherin

In this talk, Calum Neill (Edinburgh) will explore Lacan’s four propositions on ethics from his seminar on the Ethics of Psychoanalysis and seek to illustrate his arguments through Martin McDonagh’s 2022 film The Banshees of Inisherin. This will allow us to examine the question and pertinence of guilt and desire in Lacan’s consideration of ethics, and the particular use he makes of the concept of the tragic. Contemplating the characters of Colm and Pádriac and their various choices, Calum hopes to bring some light to the inconclusive conclusion of the film and to Lacan’s seminar.

Respondent: Carol Owens (psychoanalyst, author, and co-organiser of the Irish psychoanalytic film festival) will respond to Calum’s talk and facilitate a discussion with Calum and attendees.

Attendance in person and by Zoom welcomeNOTE: Registration is open for this seminar and also the upcoming seminar on autism with Leon Brenner (May 20th, see below). A discount is offered if registering for both seminars. See the tickets page for registration.

Bio: Calum Neill is Associate Professor of Psychoanalysis & Cultural Theory at Edinburgh Napier University, Director of Lacan in Scotland, and Editor of the Palgrave Lacan Series. He is the author of three books, including the forthcoming Jacques Lacan the Basics, the first entry level introduction to Lacan’s ideas. His work on trying to render Lacan accessible is also demonstrated in the Reading Lacan’s Écrits four volume collection of which he is one of the editors. His other two monographs, Without Ground (2014) and Ethics and Psychology (2016), are concerned respectively with thinking through the ethical potential in Lacan’s thought and the ethical ramifications of psychological thought.

Information on Seminar on Autism w/ Leon Brenner (Berlin), Saturday, May 20th, 10am – 1pm. 

Autism and The Voice

Leon Brenner’sThe Autistic Subject: On the Threshold of Language” (2020) makes a compelling case for the relevance of Lacanian psychoanalysis in the understanding and treatment of autism. Counter to both the cognitive and identitarian approaches, Brenner rigorously theorizes autism as a unique subjective structure and mode of access to language that sits alongside the classical Freudian structures of psychosis, neurosis, and perversion.

In this talk, Leon will present us to his understanding of autism as a “mode-of-being”. We will examine the etiology of autism from a psycholinguistic standpoint, paying special attention to the autistic relationship with the voice. Lacan’s psychoanalytic teachings on the voice and its role in establishing enunciative position will be explored in depth and shed light on the phenomenon of autistic individuals demonstrating clear language proficiency but not engaging in its enunciation.

The presentation will cover a range of psychoanalytic, philosophical, and anthropological approaches to autism, with the aim of providing a comprehensive understanding of this complex mode-of-being. While prior reading is not required, the talk promises to provide an insightful and nuanced exploration of the topic.

BioLeon S. Brenner (Ph.D.) is a psychoanalytic theorist and psychological counsellor from Berlin. Brenner’s work draws from the Freudian and Lacanian traditions of psychoanalysis, and his interest lies in the understanding of the relationship between culture and psychopathology. His book The Autistic Subject: On the Threshold of Language (2020), is a bestseller in psychology in Springer publishing in 2021. He is currently a research fellow at the International Psychoanalytic University Berlin and the Hans Kilian und Lotte Köhler Centrum (KKC) at the Ruhr Universität Bochum.
