Bringing together psychoanalysts and psychoanalytic psychotherapists of different theoretical orientations and affiliations working with children and adolescents in Ireland, this one-day symposium aims to create the opportunity for several important discussions and exchanges to take place which are both topical and relevant to psychoanalytically informed clinical practice with children. The symposium will also create a space for practitioners to get to know each other’s work and meet with others in this field. Arranged in three core panels, the work with children and adolescents will be examined and discussed across a range of themes. Each panel will be organised roundtable style with 4-6 presenters each speaking on a particular aspect of the theme, followed by a chaired discussion and participation from the floor.
6 CPD points have been awarded by the ICP for this event.
The Symposium will be followed by a Book Launch + Wine Reception:
“Lacanian Psychoanalysis with Babies, Children and Adolescents: Further Notes on the Child” Edited by Carol Owens and Stephanie Farrelly Quinn (Karnac, July 2017).
