Jung - Lacan Dialogues

Jung – Lacan Dialogues

This is the ninth 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?


Is there any common ground between Jung’s and Lacan’s theories of phantasy? What are the differences between their approaches? Carol Leader and Lucia Corti will elaborate the history and development of this concept and reflect on the implications for clinical work.

Carol Leader is a Training and Supervising Jungian Analyst with the British Psychotherapy Foundation (BJAA) where she is also a Senior Psychoanalytic Psychotherapist (PPA). She worked extensively in theatre, TV and radio before retraining as a therapist in the early 1990’s. These days she works in full time private practice, consults in business and for projects in the arts. She lectures, writes and leads seminars in a range of professional training settings. Carol’s paper ‘Evil, Imagination and the Unrepressed Unconscious: The Value of William Blake’s Satanic “Error” for Clinical Practice’ won the 2014 British Journal of Psychotherapy’s Rozsika Parker Prize. Lucia Corti is a Senior Lecturer in Psychoanalysis and a psychoanalyst in private practice. She is a member of the Centre for Freudian Analysis and Research, The College of Psychoanalysts-UK and the Guild of Psychotherapists. She studied clinical psychology in Argentina and obtained a postgraduate degree in psychoanalysis at Brunel University. Her research interests concern the question of mourning, memory and transmission; the intersection between psychoanalysis and politics and the theory,  practice and transmission of Lacanian psychoanalysis.
