Why War? A Psychoanalytic Enquiry

By Freud Lacan institute (FLi)

About This Event

In the most recent issue of the London Review of Books, Jacqueline Rose writes of the conflict in Israel/Gaza that there is a need to bring psychoanalytic understanding to the negotiating table. “One thing seems clear. None of this will just disappear if we ignore it. You cannot dream the unconscious away.” (J.Rose,‘You made me do it’: Jacqueline Rose on violence and its origins, LRB. Vol.45 No.23, 30 November 2023).

The Freud Lacan institute (FLi) chooses not to ignore it.

With reflective remarks by John O’Donoghue, Anouchka Grose, Jordan Osserman, and Jerry Fromm (bios below), this seminar organied by FLi offers a conversation about the psychical propensity for aggression in people, the disposition to violence and cruelty that hangs over groups, and the forces that render them latent and sublimated, especially at this extremely worrying time of global warring and factionalism. One of the gifts of psychoanalysis is the room it makes for aggressivity as a component feature of human subjectivity and the important ways this is sublimated. Taking Freud’s letter to Einstein “Why War?” and the essays “Thoughts for the Time on War and Death” and “Civilisation and its Discontents,” we will explore what psychoanalysis offers at this very sensitive time.

See Freud Lacan institute (FLi) website for readings in support of this event and details of upcoming courses and programs in 2024.

A View From The Exit

Theoretical and clinical presentations. With Daniel Roy (AMS, President of the NLS ) and Philip Dravers (AP, member of the London Society and Secretary of the NLS)

  • Programme to follow soon…
  • In person only.

“Who should we talk to about entering analysis? The most interesting thing would undoubtedly be to talk about it to those who have not yet entered analysis, and who perhaps never will. (…) Having located the address, I pose the question: Viewed from the exit, what is the entry into analysis? We don’t usually say that we come out of analysis, whereas we readily say that we enter it – could it be that we’re not quite sure we’ll ever get out once we’ve entered? In any case, it’s not certain that the practitioner of psychoanalysis has come out of it – perhaps he shouldn’t exit it (en sortir), but at most he should get through it (s’en sortir), if he can. Let’s say the exit all the same, since we say the entry.”

Jacques-Alain Miller, “Vue de la sortie (View From the Exit)”, in Comment finissent les analyses. Paradoxes de la passe, Navarin Ed., 2022, p. 71

Dear Registrant,

Following from our correspondence with the Department of Education, we are delighted to advise you that they will now be accepting applications from our registered members who are accredited psychotherapists of one of the four sections within the Irish Council for Psychotherapy (i.e., the 10 accrediting psychotherapy bodies), and who meet the criteria as outlined in the Terms & Conditions of the Department of Education’s Counselling in Primary Schools Pilot 2023-25.

Please find below the links to the Advert, Application Form and Terms & Conditions. Applications to be placed on the Counselling in Primary Schools Pilot panel is now ongoing, throughout the school year.

The Department of Education launched a Primary Schools’ Pilot Counselling programme last summer.

This programme is up and running and the Department is now seeking more involvement from Psychotherapists and Counsellors. The Department is accepting members on a rolling, continuous basis.

This initiative is important in beginning to address the gap in resources that school principals, families and psychotherapists are so familiar with.

All information pertaining to the Counselling in Primary Schools Pilot is available at the  dedicated webpage here. The criteria for inclusion on the panel is available in the Terms and Conditions for Psychotherapist and Counsellors, which has recently been updated, and the application is available here.  The FAQs for psychotherapists and counsellors can be found here.

The team are keen to offer help and support in answering any of your questions

If you or your colleagues have any queries please contact the Counselling Pilot Team inbox at CounsellingPilot@nulleducation.gov.ie

Agenda

  • 10am – 11am Seminar – “The End Times”
  • 11am – 11:30am Discussion / Q&A

About This Event

  • 30 minutes
  • Mobile eTicket

What is meant by the end times? What is the value of this phrase? We are ‘Writing the Disaster’ (Maurice Blanchot). Why did Freud “reinvent” the Death Drive? I will review my writing on the death drive and why this controversial concept has become so critically important in the clinic and culture. Lacan and Klein are alone in accepting, albeit very differently, this ultimate datum, which, in the absence of the father, permit psychosis and perversion to increase. And are we witnessing the death wish of humanity, or conversely is this the time for metanoia? Rob Weatherill will be discussing these questions on November 11th.

Rob Weatherill is a practicing and supervisory analyst in Dublin, a member of three psychoanalytic groups (IFPP, APPI and ICP) and a founder member of APPI. He has a master’s degree in psychotherapy from St. Vincent’s University Hospital as well as the European Certificate in Psychotherapy.. He taught psychoanalysis on post-graduate courses in University College Dublin, Trinity College Dublin and the Milltown Institute of Philosophy and Theology. He currently convenes two supervision groups that meet once fortnightly. He has published six books internationally and edited one other. He has written many papers published in academic journals over the last 40 years on the interface been psychoanalysis and culture.

Reform Irish Mental Health – Petition & Submission

Reform Irish Mental Health – Petition & Submission

Eoin O’Sullivan (psychotherapist) is an ICP registrant and IAHIP accreditant. In September 2023, Eoin contacted Rea Walshe (Consultant – Chairing Board Meetings) and the ICP Board of Directors regarding advocacy / lobbying.

Eoin informed ICP of a petition that he worked on for the last 1.5 years entitled ‘Reform Irish Mental Health’, P00009/23. Eoin was invited to address the Committee on Public Petitions and the Ombudsmen at the Oireachtas on 28/09/2023 in relation to the issues raised by the petition.

Eoin had to submit an opening statement on 18/09/2023 and wanted to include a letter of support from ICP on the issues he raised.  ICP agreed with the points outlined in his submission. Hence, ICP contributed to the final stages of lobbying for the issues the petition addressed via the letter of support sent to the Committee on Public Petitions and the Ombudsmen on 18/09/2023.

Eoin thanked ICP and forwarded ICP the Oireachtas links. Please find below the links to the petition and session. The session starts approximately 50 minutes into the video recording.
