The Dialogues in Contemporary Psychoanalysis Program aims to foster meaningful discussion on major current trends in psychoanalysis – in terms of clinical practice, as well as psychoanalytic theory applied to topics such as politics, history, aesthetics, literature and film, gender, and development.
