An Intercultural Perspective on Psychoanalysis – Where do we stand now?

A Two Day Live Webinar with Prof Salman Akhtar

How can a ‘westernised’ psychoanalytic framework be used to think about the psychology of people from across the globe today? Where does psychoanalysis tap into something that might be considered ‘universal’ about the human experience, and where might it misconstrue the subjectivity of people from different cultures and societies? What does a psychoanalytic approach mean when we think about ‘power’ and ‘culture’ in the therapy room, and how do we navigate this complexity as therapists?

In this thought-provoking live webinar with Professor Salman Akhtar, we will use these questions to explore the intercultural application of psychoanalysis. We will consider both its impact and limitations across three sessions, focusing on the profession, theory and practice. Salman will draw on his wide-ranging clinical, academic, and personal insight to illuminate key ideas and help you understand the implications for practice.

Salman will speak from his experience as both a professional and an Indian-American person. These two sessions over two days offer time for integration and discussion and we look forward to a lively exchange of ideas to support clinical work with an intercultural lens.
