Senior lecturer in psychoanalysis

Jung – Lacan Dialogues

This is the third in a series of Jung-Lacan Dialogues aimed at fostering an engagement between two important and creative schools of psychoanalysis. What is the common ground between them? What are the intractable differences? Is it possible to find a common language or achieve mutual understandings? And what are the implications for clinical practice?

The Subject and The Self

Is there any commonality between Jung’s idea of the Self and Lacan’s notion of the Subject? And what are the specifics of the differences between these two important clinical concepts? Alan Rowan and David Henderson will elaborate the history and development of the terms and reflect on the implications for clinical work.

Alan Rowan is a Lacanian Psychoanalyst and member of the World Association of Psychoanalysis. He is also a Chartered Clinical Psychologist and a Systemic Psychotherapist who currently works as Head of Psychology Services within a Low Secure Forensic Hospital setting. He has published articles on a range of topics in the field of contemporary Lacanian Psychoanalysis and is frequently invited to lecture on post-graduate and professional training courses in psychoanalysis/psychotherapy.

Dr David Henderson is a psychoanalytic psychotherapist in private practice and a senior lecturer in psychoanalysis at Middlesex University. He has an M.A. in Jungian and Post-Jungian Studies and a PhD. from Goldsmiths. David is a member of the Association of Independent Psychotherapists (A.I.P.) and has recently published a book entitled “Apophatic Elements in the Theory and Practice of Psychoanalysis: Pseudo Dionysius and C.W. Jung”.
