Jung - Lacan Dialogues
This is the eighth in a series of Jung-Lacan Dialogues organised by the Jung/Lacan Research Network based at the Centre for Psychoanalysis, Middlesex University. It aims at fostering an engagement between two important and creative schools of psychoanalysis. What is the common ground between them? What are the intractable differences? Is it possible to find a common language or achieve mutual understandings? And what are the implications for clinical practice?
The position of the analyst
Is there any commonality between Jung’s idea of the role of the analyst and Lacan’s notion of the position of the analyst? And what are the specifics of the differences between these two important clinical concepts? Berjanet Jazani and David Henderson will elaborate the history and development of the terms and reflect on the implications for clinical work.
