Repetition in Analytic Experience
Adriana Passini

Friday, November 6, 2020
6:30 PM – 8:30 PM

Returning to Freud’s considerations on repetition in the analytic experience as a form of past behavior that emerges in the present, this seminar will study repetition in its dual aspect, both as an insistence of the signifying chain and as an encounter with an object missed by definition.

Suggested Readings: Freud: "Remembering, Repeating and Working-Through" (1914); Beyond the Pleasure Principle (1920). Lacan: Seminars XI, 1964, The Four Fundamental Concepts of Psychoanalysis, classes 4, 5, 10; XVII, 1969-70, The Other Side of Psychoanalysis, class 5.

Adriana Passini practices psychoanalysis in NYC, and is a member and faculty member of Après-Coup Psychoanalytic Association and a member of the advisory board of the American Psychoanalytic Association for Psychoanalysis in Clinical Social Work.

Dates: Meetings will take place on the following Fridays: October 9, November 6, and December 11 (6:30 PM – 8:30 PM).

Location: Online via Zoom.

Fee: $20 per meeting. For students with ID: $10 per meeting.
