Half-Day Conference, 1.15pm - 5.30pm
Sexualities in Psychoanalysis
The Psychoanalysis Centre at UCL is proud to present the third half-day conference in the Psychoanalysis Unit's Interdisciplinary Programme for 2013-2014.
Infantile sexuality and the unconscious form the foundations of Freud's account and remain central to psychoanalysis. Historically however, especially in Britain, the focus on early infantile development, object relations, and the importance for future health of the first relations between mother and child tended to diminish the place accorded to sexuality in psychoanalytic theories and practice. More normative prescriptive accounts of sexual practices also tended to replace Freud's non-judgemental emphases. This conference reintroduces the centrality of sexualities for the practice and the theory of contemporary psychoanalysis.

Twenty Years of Developmental Lines: from the MSc to Now
To celebrate 20 years of MSc studies at the Anna Freud Centre, we are running an event which is open to all alumni from the MSc programmes. In 1993, our first cohort of six students began on the MSc in Psychoanalytic Developmental Psychology (PDP). Twenty years later, this MSc and new postgraduate programmes have developed both in size and content.
This is an opportunity for graduates of the programmes to come together with fellow alumni and past and present staff members to hear how their studies have been responsible for informing their work and development in diverse directions and fields. This event is an opportunity to hear from key speakers who have been instrumental in their fields as well as pivotal in the development of the Anna Freud Centre and its postgraduate programmes.
The afternoon programme will involve a series of short presentations and workshop activities led by AFC alumni – demonstrating the breadth of influence of the programmes, the wide range of careers and personal pathways taken by alumni, and hopefully to forge new links between us for future projects.
The conference will take place at the Anna Freud Centre on Saturday, 21st June 2014.
There will be a drinks reception held at the Freud Museum on Friday, 20th June from 18:00 - 20:00.
