Lady Balogh Prize: BJAA Jung Forum TPC event (online & in person)

This paper deals with themes of schizoid defences in an analytic couple. Powerful moments of acting out and a moment of synchronicity are discussed. The analyst, who identifies as queer, explores the theme of queerness and Jung’s unknowable psychoid unconscious. 

Please note this is a hybrid event - if you would like to attend online please specify or if you would prefer to attend at the bpf house please specify. I will send a confirmation email to all registrants a week before to confirm their preference.
