December 2018 Scientific Meeting Recording

"Unconscious Phantasy, Part 1"

The topic of unconscious phantasy is central to understanding the theoretical models developed by Melanie Klein, Wilfred Bion, Donald Meltzer and many analysts in the British object relations tradition. In 2017 the International Journal of Psychoanalysis devoted several articles to exploring this theme (Int J Psychoanal 2017 98: 779-859). In the spirit of fostering community conversation devoted to key concepts in psychoanalysis several scientific meetings were organized to explore this central analytic concept drawing on the IJP articles and other sources. As background, participants read the following papers that viewers may want to review prior to or after viewing this video. The papers will be emailed to viewers upon purchase of the video:

Bell, D. (2017). Unconscious Phantasy: Some Historical and Conceptual Dimensions. International Journal of Psychoanalysis, 98:785-798.

Weiss, H. (2017). Unconscious Phantasy as a Structural Principle and Organizer of Mental Life. International Journal of Psychoanalysis, 98:799-819.
