A Lacanian Approach to Dreams and the Unconscious

A seminar using psychoanalysis and clinical cases to explore the unconscious.

This presentation offers an explication of key ideas from Freud and Lacan that guide the analyst’s work in the clinic. Dr. Rogers will explicate moments in a Lacanian analysis that illustrate the unconscious as an arc of experience. She will present two adult analytic cases (Kara and Fernando) to illustrate how patients become analysands, undertaking responsibility for their own explorations of the unconscious, guided by an analyst. The cases will illustrate the Lacanian structure of neurosis in its hysteric and obsessive forms.

Annie G. Rogers, Ph.D., is Analyst of the Lacanian School of San Francisco and Member of the Association for Psychoanalysis & Psychotherapy, Ireland. She is Professor of Psychoanalysis and Clinical Psychology at Hampshire College and directs its Psychoanalytic Studies Program. She also has a private practice. Her most recent book is Incandescent Alphabets: Psychosis and the Enigma of Language, published by Karnac Books.

    Hi – I live in Australia – but Love Annie’s work having read her books.
    Are you going to have a video of it?
    There are so many people who would be interested to see it and I can circulate it. or not if preferred. But would love to be able to see it myself. Thanks

      Hi Megan! Glad to hear you’re also a fan of Annie’s work and that you’re interested in the event. We’ve had a few other requests for recording it and we will do our best to make this happen. However it depends on approval from the speaker, so we can’t promise anything. Will put it up online if it happens! All the best, Amanda (secretary of Lacan in Scotland).

      Hi again Megan. Just to let you know we’re unfortunately not able to record the seminar due to the clinical cases being presented (in order to maintain confidentiality). Sorry about that. We are hoping to start recording our events in the future, so hopefully there might be something there of interest. All the best, Amanda
