A day with Adam Phillips
Recorded Saturday 14 March 2020
This discussion focuses on the question of what constitutes an acceptable picture of change in psychoanalysis. Adam begins the talk by exploring the uses of the word “conversion” in psychoanalytic discourse and the idea of change within the thinking of key theorists.
The paper provides a platform 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?READ MORE...
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 consider what insights are most useful to help us navigate this territory. As part of this exploration, Adam is interviewed by Anouchka Grose, and discusses his paper with Judy Yellin, providing the space and time for us to examine these questions in depth.
CPD – An optional certificate of attendance for up to 4.5 hours of CPD, based on completion of a multiple choice questionnaire, will be available soon.
