WORKSHOP ON CHILD ANALYSIS

Let Me Think: A Psychoanalytic Critique of ADHD
Angelo Villa

Saturday, April 23, 2022
10:00 AM – 12:00 PM

Attention deficit and hyperactivity today form a major part of childhood pathologies. The extreme bodily restlessness of these disorders radically challenges the psychoanalytic clinic, based as it is on the word. Yet if psychoanalysis is to spare children practices that objectify and merely medicate them, it must rise to this challenge with its own radical insistence on what it means to speak.

Suggested Readings Freud: "The Creative Writer and Fantasy" [Der Dichter und das Phantasieren] (1908); "On Narcissism: An Introduction" (1914). Françoise Dolto: L'Image inconsciente du corps (1984).

Angelo Villa practices psychoanalysis in Milan. He is a member of the Associazione Lacaniana Italiana and of Après-Coup Psychoanalytic Association, and the author, in English translation, of Psychoanalysis and Severe Handicap.
