Making Sense of Kleinian Theory in Practice - 16 March 2016, London
This lecture forms part of the CTS course lecture series, organised by the British Psychoanalytic Association, and is open to external applicants only.
Time: 8:30 - 10.00 pm
Speaker: Julia Sandelson
Melanie Klein is regarded as Freud's theoretical heir. Her particular emphasis on the importance of 'unconscious phantasy' and 'internal objects' led to a new understanding of the process of personality formation. Crucially, for patients in psychoanalysis, it then follows that apparently entrenched and fixed difficulties can be identified and worked through, making possible psychic and personality change.
Julia Sandelson uses clinical vignettes to delineate and illustrate the way in which Kleinian theoretical concepts can be understood in the consulting room.
Venue: British Psychotherapy Foundation 37 Mapesbury Road, London NW2 4HJ
