Academic Year 2021/2022
This module concentrates on two of Freud’s case studies as reference points for a psychoanalytic understanding of psychosis, 1) his analysis of Judge Schreber’s autobiographical account of his psychotic illness and 2) his treatment of the Russian emigre, eponymously referred to as the ‘Wolf Man’. Building on Freud’s case histories ithe module draws from Lacan’s Seminar Book III on the psychoses and presents how the psychoanalytic field provides a different account of psychotic illness which can provide a basis for listening for clinicians today. Attention will be paid to the potential for effective use of psychoanalysis in the treatment of psychosis today.
