About this training

Lacanian thought is on the rise in the humanities – these are ideas that seem well equipped to grapple with the deepening complexities of the 21st century. The Lacanian psychoanalytic clinic can also make an offer for our time – cutting a fresh path through the field of ‘mental health’ – reframing medical diagnoses as questions of subjectivity.

What will it cover?

The focus of the workshop will be the fundamental concept of Freudian and Lacanian psychoanalysis – the unconscious. For Lacan the unconscious comes from the ‘outside’ and appears in the disruptions of glitches of language.

Who is this course for?

This workshop is an opportunity to find a way into a Lacan for our moment in time. This course should be interesting and accessible for anyone interested in psychoanalysis, including qualified counsellors and psychotherapists as well as those in training.


For the past 8 years Conor McCormack has been a psychoanalyst in training with the Lacanian orientated Centre for Freudian Analysis and Research. He works in Bristol in private practice as well as for a National Health Service talking therapy clinic. Conor is also a director and writer known for his powerful, socially engaged filmmaking, including the BIFA nominated documentary Christmas with Dad and the acclaimed voice-hearing documentary In the Real:
