COURSE DESCRIPTION:

Previously undertheorized, increasingly resonating with all contemporary psychoanalytic cultures, the multidimensional and multi-perspectival spectrum of field theories and conceptualizations with implications for sensitive attunement to the (however variously conceptualized) field dimension of the psychoanalytic process, addresses challenges of today’s psychoanalytic practice with the broad range of clinical conditions, including those with deficits of symbolization and diminished capacity for reflection. Analytic field theories and field-related conceptualizations can be also thought of as a particular theoretical extension began by Freud of unconscious processes traversing individual subjects, with the field as a provision for new emotional meanings to arise.

The course will trace different sources and pathways of the concept as they pertain to the evolution of the concept in Latin America, North America and Europe. The purpose is to facilitate understanding of the contemporary complexity, proliferation and cross-fertilization of psychoanalytic field theories and concepts in and across all IPA regions.
