The purpose of the salon is to gather in an informal setting to share basic and applied psychoanalytic principles that help you explore your interest in psychoanalysis and/or psychodynamic psychotherapy.

Description: As Covid-19 forced psychoanalysts, psychotherapists and many other healthcare practitioners to use online platforms, internet connectivity took on new meaning. While bothersome for both patient and therapist, technology glitches can offer an opportunity to see unconscious relationship dynamics come through in sessions, in a way they might not in the consulting room. While the therapist usually controls the frame through how they arrange their office, internet glitches can come from either the therapist’s or the patient’s side. These glitches can be thought of as either purely technological or as an unconscious enactment, more like a parapraxis. Both kinds of glitches can offer the opportunity to uncover meaning in the relationship. Exploration might help elucidate either the patient’s reaction to the technological glitch or the unconscious meaning behind a parapraxis glitch. Like a ‘Freudian slip’ of the tongue in a typical session, a Freudian glitch can be fertile ground for further examination and connection with patients.
