Dr David Bell has taught at The Tavistock Clinic London and The British Psychoanalytic Society for over 25 years. His lectures and seminars have been widely praised.

This series of online lectures now allows his teaching to reach a wider audience.

It offers a systematic introduction and overview of the development of psychoanalytic theory from Freud to the present day, always keeping in mind its contemporary relevance. It is aimed at two kinds of student: those who have little prior knowledge of psychoanalysis and also those who are already have familiarity with psychoanalytic ideas (such as psychotherapists, psychiatrists, psychologists) but would like to revisit theory in a structured and systematic way.

The course offers a chronological overview of the development of psychoanalytic theory. It begins with two introductory lectures that situate psychoanalysis within a broad cultural and epistemological context. This is followed by a systematic overview of key concepts in the development of Freud’s theory and then moves on to discuss the work of Melanie Klein. The course also examines the relation of psychoanalysis to culture, literature and socio-political theory.
