Neuropsychoanalysis: Clinical Implications Course overview
A workshop with Mark Solms
Following the Tavistock’s successful workshop in October in which Prof Mark Solms outlined his new theoretical developments, a workshop on December 14th will focus principally on formulating clinical presentations using neuropsychoanalytic thinking.
Prof Solms will consider cases from the perspective of an emerging clinical model that draws on advances in affective neuroscience. Of particular significance to the model are recent changes to conceptions of:
- the affective basis of consciousness itself (the conscious id)
- the meaning of symptoms
- the actual task of psychoanalytic treatment to exemplify the implications for clinical technique.
Attendance at the October workshop is not a pre-requisite for attending in December, although some prior knowledge of Prof Solms’s ideas will be helpful in orientating delegates to the clinical discussions. For those looking to familiarise themselves with the theory that will be applied clinically during the workshop, Solms’s recent Frontiers paper offers a concise introduction.

This workshop is a joint event by the London Neuropsychoanalysis Society and The Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust, in association with the Psychotherapy Faculty of the Royal College of Psychiatrists and the Bloomsbury Neuroscience Group.
