BION AND THOUGHTS TOO DEEP FOR WORDS

BION AND THOUGHTS TOO DEEP FOR WORDS

Psychoanalysis, Suggestion and the Language of the Unconscious

An online conference with Robert Caper

Friday, 09.04.21 – 19.00h – 21.00h (CET+1)
Saturday, 10.04.21 – 16.00 – 20.30 (CET+1)

What is the difference between psychoanalysis and suggestion? A patient, who is in some distress, makes a sizable investment of time and money in order to come to an authority holding out the promise of a cure. This authority has the prestige of an established professional discipline behind him or her, and may have been recommended to the patient by a trusted friend, family member or professional. The practice itself is unlike anything the patient has experienced in the past, and he or she is asked to give it the benefit of the doubt for some time. All of this sounds like a perfect set up for the practice of suggestion on a patient who is in pain and eager for anything that might bring relief.

MEDEA – Femininity, Motherhood, Love and Hate

Tbilisi, Georgia

The conference MEDEA – Femininity, Motherhood, Love and Hate will take place in Tbilisi, Georgia, October 19-20, 2018. The Committee of Women and Psychoanalysis writes: “We choose this title because “Medea” – from Colchis, today a part of Georgia – as a mythical figure, represents a universal and multifaceted archetype-a symbol and thus is an image of a powerful, omnipotent, pre-oedipal god-mother, is repressed into the unconscious of every female. In this sense the myth of Medea is a part of our intellectual, cultural and symbolic heritage. The overall theme “Medea” covers many COWAP issues: topics related to issues mainly concerning women, but also relations between men and women, masculinity and femininity in modern times, the outside world and its problems, the socio-cultural point of view and the reflection of psychoanalytic concepts.” The conference will host international but also regional speakers to enhance Psychoanalysis and the support of women’s issues in Eastern Europe.
