Introductory Lectures: Beyond the Couch @ The Institute of Psychoanalysis

Introductory Lectures: Beyond the Couch @ The Institute of Psychoanalysis



Ever fancied yourself a bit of a Freudian? Or perhaps you’ve always wanted to be in the know when it comes to the tribulations of the mind, but didn’t know where to start. Here is the chance for you to find out what’s what when it comes to cigar-smoking theories.

I loved these lectures when I attended them a few years back, and would warmly recommend them to anyone with an interest in, or plain and simple curiosity about psychoanalysis. Can’t promise you’ll be an expert at the end of it, but it’s a neat party trick if your relatives have the head for it. Only joking! DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME.

And farewell!


This two-part series of lectures on psychoanalysis, each followed by a discussion in small groups, provides an overall view of the core concepts in psychoanalysis and their main applications. Participants are provided with basic texts for each lecture. Further reading is suggested and is available in the Institute’s library.

The course is suitable for people new in the field, as well as those with experience.
