Adam Phillips is internationally acclaimed as an essayist, literary critic, cultural scholar, and practicing psychoanalyst. He is a renowned author who has been featured in The New York Times, The Economist, The New Yorker, The Guardian, and Newsweek to just list a few. Currently in private practice in London, he is the general editor of the new Penguin Modern Classics translations of Sigmund Freud as well as a regular contributor to the London Review of Books. He is also a Visiting Professor in the English Department at York University. Previously, he was Principal Child Psychotherapist at Charing Cross Hospital.

Adam Phillips is called “one of the finest prose stylists at work in the language, an Emerson of our time” by John Banville. He has published over 17 scholarly books and numerous essays on psychoanalysis, literature, philosophy, the history of science, sociology, politics, child psychology, and biography. The Guardian says “’Phillipsian’ would evoke a vivid, paradoxical style that led you to think that you had picked up an idea by the head, only to find you were holding it by the tail.”

This seminar includes a presentation titled “On Unforbidden Pleasures” analyzing, from historical to current day viewpoint, how particular behaviors are perceived in our society as acceptable and how that influences the individual’s wellbeing. This will be followed by a discussion on his latest book One Way and Another: New and Selected Essays, which focuses on psychoanalysis: its history, methods, and its preoccupations including desire, memory and narcissism. The seminar concludes with an in-depth interview examining the latest ideas about psychoanalysis and its application in working with culturally diverse populations in the community.

As a result of attending this seminar, the participant will be able to:
  1. Understand how “unforbidden pleasures” impact the individual’s wellbeing
  2. Learn how the psychotherapist shapes the therapeutic relationship
  3. Learn about the application of psychoanalytic concepts and principles into practice in the community
