Power and corruption in the individual and society – David Morgan
A demonstration of how a psychoanalytical understanding of destructiveness can contribute to the comprehension of fundamentalist politics, through an exploration of links between perversion in the individual and corruption in society. Clinical and research work with whistle-blowers, refugees and political theorists will be used as illustration.

Psychoanalysis and feminism – Ruth McCall
A discussion of the revolutionary beginnings of psychoanalysis, its changing understanding and depiction of the feminine, and to what extent it still remains a normative and anti-feminist stance.  Ruth will draw upon Freud, Winnicott, Klein and contemporary writers, and clinical vignettes.

Psychoanalysis and the excluded – Ruth McCall
An exploration of class, mental condition, race and intellect, and how far psychoanalysis has moved, or not, from Freud’s initial exclusions in anyone who struck him as
“low-minded & repellent… below a certain level of intelligence… or feebleness of mind”

Psychoanalysis and perversion – David Morgan
Corruption of the individual via the internet, work practices and market forces will be explored. David will demonstrate how pornography and other distractions lead to a disturbance of real relationships.

The Coming Out Diaries…

BBC recently screened the story of three teenagers and their coming out stories told in their own words. It follows the conflicts and dilemmas faced by three young people as they navigate their way through telling their family and friends that they are gay or transgender.

The British documentary Coming Out Diaries, was originally broadcast on the BBC last year, and screened locally on ABC2 in October.

If you managed to see a screening of it we would love to hear your thoughts…
