Laplanche’s new foundations for psychoanalysis.

A clinical/theoretical day with Dominique Scarfone, September 24, 2016 

Dominique Scarfone has brought a French accent to psychoanalysis in North America.  He is one of the leading scholars on the work of French psychoanalyst Jean Laplanche, M.D.  His presentation will be clinical and theoretical, integrating Laplanche’s ideas into psychoanalytic practice. He will also present his own creative elaboration of some of these ideas.

Educational Objectives: At the conclusion of this program participants will be able to:

1. Attendants will be able to summarize Laplanche’s original contribution to French and world psychoanalysis.
2. They will be able to formulate a new conception of transference, based on the generalized theory of seduction. 
3. They will be able to describe the analytic stance required when dealing with delusional transference.

Dominique Scarfone is a psychiatrist, training/supervising analyst in the Canadian Psychoanalytic Society & Institute (Montreal French Branches). He is honorary professor in the Department of Psychology, Université de Montréal. A former Associate Editor of the International Journal of Psychoanalysis, he has published and lectured extensively internationally. He co-edited, with Howard B. Levine and Gail Reed, Unrepresented States and the Production of Meaning, (London, Karnac, 2013). His most recent books in English are Jean Laplanche: An Introduction (2015) and The Unpast: The Actual Unconscious, (2016) both published in New York by the The Unconscious in Translation http://ucsintranslation.com.
