This one-day discussion focuses on the question of what constitutes an acceptable picture of change in psychoanalysis. We will begin with a talk by Adam in which he will explore the uses of the word “conversion” in psychoanalytic discourse and the idea of change within the thinking of key theorists.
The paper will provide a platform for us then to examine what we understand is being changed. Is a process of conversion from one state of being to another even central to the project of psychoanalysis? If so, what is being shed or left behind, and what is being discovered or gained? In a historical moment when the idea of conversion is being deeply interrogated, we will consider what insights are most useful to help us navigate this territory. As part of this exploration, Adam will also be interviewed by Anouchka Grose, and will discuss his paper with Judy Yellin, providing the space and time for us to examine these questions in depth.
