The Paternal Integrate and its role in the analysing situation

Nov 2, 2018

Lecture by psychoanalyst of the British Psychoanalytical Society and psychotherapist, Jan Abram…

Lecture by psychoanalyst Jan Abram at the Hellenic American Union

On the occasion of the Greek edition of D. W. Winnicott’s Deprivation & Delinquency, Jan Abram's address proposes the notion of a “paternal integrate” that constitutes the earliest form of the father in the psyche of the newborn. This concept interprets and extends Winnicott's very late proposal of the father as a whole object from the start of psychic life.

The lecture is delivered in English featuring a projection of the lecturer’s speech in Greek. Clinical psychologist Nektarios Koulos comments and psychoanalyst (SPF) Thanassis Hatzopoulos coordinates the event.
