Event description

Description

Everyday psychiatrists, general practitioners, psychotherapists, psychologists, nurses and other health practitioners face the challenge of responding to phenomena which fall under the term anxiety. For over 100 years the psychoanalytic field has produced clinical literature that articulates these phenomena. This one day conference provides an opportunity to hear psychoanalytic perspectives on this most relevant question: what is anxiety? The clinical findings from the psychoanalytic field can inform the response to the handling of the phenomena of anxiety.

Psychoanalysis has found that anxiety is related to our wishes, desires and our relation to enjoyment. In other words it constitutes activity fundamental to subjectivity. Anxiety, therefore, is complex and its sufferer can be recommended a psychoanalytic listening alongside any other intervention.

  • Dr. Aisling Campbell (psychiatrist) Cork
  • Dr. Christian Fierens (psychiatrist, doctor of psychology, psychoanalyst, author) Brussels
