Program

We know very well the narcissism of the image that Lacan inaugurated with his "Mirror Stage." But later he moved on to an enlarged, fuller conception of narcissism, more suited to the subjectivity of the time. It engages the body in all of its dimensions, which extend from scopic contemplation to affirmation of the self, not without mobilizing desires and drives.

Objectives

Participants will be able to:

  1. Define “Mirror Stage” and “narcissism of the image.”
    2. Explain the clinical relevance of Lacan’s “Mirror Stage” theory.
    3. Describe what is meant by a “new reading of the myth of Narcissus.”
    4. Describe Lacan’s expanded theory of narcissism and how it is used in clinical work.
    5. Describe what is meant by the “industry of narcissism” in contemporary culture.
    6. Distinguish between the common notion of self-esteem and Lacan’s unique
    concept of affirmation of the self and its clinical relevance.

Presenter
