LacanianWorks welcomes you!

Hello,

I am Julia Evans who started to grow LacanianWorks in October 2010.

Over the years, the emphasis has changed. My three areas of interest are

1) A Lacanian clinic

2) Mental Health in the political landscape today

3) Finding texts which Jacques Lacan would have read

1) A Lacanian clinic :

– My practice is in Earl’s Court, London and appointments are available. Please contact je.lacanian@icloud.com to arrange a meeting or with queries.

– Over the last 30 years, I have belonged to many cartels, reading groups & working groups. See category ‘Groups & Cartels’ here and ‘Works in progress from the Lacanian (Freudian) Field’ here. Categories are also shown in the right hand column. Currently I am also involved with translating Seminar IV – see here or category ‘Translation Working Group’ on the right or here for related texts.

– There are texts from the clinic – see here or the categories shown on the right, under ‘1. Applied Lacanian Works’.

– I also include some of the discussion on the topic for the New Lacanian School of Psychoanalysis congresses.  The next NLS Congress is on 1 and 2 June 2019, in Tel Aviv. Its topic is “¡URGENT!”. Further details http://www.amp-nls.org/page/gb/170/the-congress

Greg Hynds will speak at the North West Regional Psychotherapy Association meeting in Manchester on Friday 14th December, 2018 on ‘Has understanding ever helped anyone get better?’. See here for details.

2) ‘Mental Health’ in the political landscape today

Shown in the categories are some of the texts I have written over the 15 years of action. My main involvement is through the Alliance for Counselling & Psychotherapy (https://allianceblogs.wordpress.com) and concerns statutory regulation, the use of counselling to authorise benefit payments, the suppression of non-Government-approved therapies, the closing of care facilities in the NHS and so on. Some of these concerns are explored in The Letter – Google Groups

3) Finding texts which Jacques Lacan would have read.

There is an index of the availability of these texts here or you can search by author here as shown in the list of categories on the right.

Texts by Sigmund Freud are shown here & Jacques Lacan, here

This remains a work in progress and the direction in which Lacanian Works develops is not guaranteed.
