On The Senate Select Committee Report on Intelligence from Frank Summers

Saturday, December 13th, 2014

FrankSummers

The recent release of the Executive Summary of the Senate Select Committee Report on Intelligence has once again raised the distressing issue of psychologists involvement in the Bush Administration torture program and the role of APA.

As psychologists and psychoanalytic clinicians, I think we have two ethical obligations: (1) to do what we can to see that psychologists who have been involved in torture are held accountable for their actions;  and (2) to see that the APA be held responsible for its actions to the extent that it colluded with torture policy and with those who participated in illegal techniques.  Making public the Executive Summary of the report of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence is the first public admission by the US government that it has conducted a policy of torture in detention centers around the globe.   (more…)

January 15, 2015 – 8:30 p.m. – IPTAR West, 140 W 97th St, New York NY

Birksted-Breen discusses the mode of attentiveness that she calls bi-ocularity: one eye/I on the immediate and one eye/I on that which is not present, the” there” of the unconscious, the lost connection, the non represented. She distinguishes it from Bion’s notion of “binocular vision”.. Bi-ocularity entails a necessary gap in the images, which also corresponds to the temporal gap of (more…)

INTRODUCING LACAN: ON THE THREE REGISTERS at Après-Coup

Friday, October 17th, 2014

Après-Coup PSYCHOANALYTIC ASSOCIATION

Wednesday, October 22, 2014
8:00 pm – 9:30 pm

INTRODUCING LACAN: ON THE THREE REGISTERS, Seminar

LILLIAN FERRARI, DAVID LICHTENSTEIN, PAOLA MIELI, ADRIANA PASSINI, MARK STAFFORD, MARTIN WINN

This seminar, which requires prior familiarity with Freud’s basic texts, is intended as an introduction to

Jacques Lacan’s theory of the Real, the Symbolic, and the Imaginary as structuring human subjectivity.

Lacan’s conceptualization of these registers is an essential tool for understanding both the impact of Freud’s

Copernican revolution on 20th-century thought and the direction of treatment in psychoanalysis. Our

goal is to show how all three registers are operative in these central psychoanalytic concepts: the subject of language, the mirror stage, the unconscious, angst, repetition, and the drives.

MEETING SCHEDULE: The seminar will be held from 8:00 pm to 9:30 pm on the following Wednesdays: October 8 & 22, November 19, December 10, January 14, February 4 & 25, March 18, April 8 & 29, May 20, June 10.

MEETING PLACE: The School of Visual Arts, 136 West 21st Street (between 6th and 7th Avenues), New York City. Please ask at the front desk for the room number.

ATTENDANCE FEE: The seminar is open to everyone, and there is no fee.

 

REGISTRATION: For information, please call Martin Winn at (212) 677-1147 or check our website at http://www.apres-coup.org/
