ABOUT THIS PRESENTATION
This Seminar will explore the contours of the contemporary adolescent psychoanalytic clinic, focusing upon the knots and tensions immanent and emergent in the work, and mobilising an investigation of the manner in which adolescent symptoms – those pertaining by definition, to what we may think of as ‘the liminal’ – may be understood as specific responses to a rapidly changing Symbolic order.
