What is phobogenesis? How does the phobogenic object fit into ideas of selfobject theory or Kleinian projection/introjection processes? Critical to present theory and practice is Fanon’s critique of the ideas coming from early theorists including Freud, Jung and Adler, particularly as his critique helps us to face into the challenges of considering race in psychoanalytic theory and practice as it shapes the subjective and intersubjective experience of both patients and analysts, both within the consulting space and in their personal and collective experience.
This discussion will center around a close reading of Fanon’s discussion of the dynamics and impact of phobogenesis on both subjects of whiteness and subjects of color. We will consider this contribution found in Fanon’s landmark text, Black Skin, White Masks and the direct implications his theoretical vision has for current work with patients of all racial, ethnic, religious, gendered and abled backgrounds. This presentation will be augmented with considerations coming from clinicians and theorists both within psychoanalysis and from outside our discipline, who have approached the implications of Fanon’s conceptualization in a variety of ways that can be helpful to clinicians in today’s current socio-politically charged contexts.

ONLINE SEMINAR IN PSYCHOANALYSIS: Hate Your Neighbour as You Hate Yourself: Hate, Racism and Exclusion (Keynote Speaker Patricia Gherovici)
To register, click here
About this Event
This seminar proposes to think psychoanalytically about symptoms of hate such as racism, discrimination and exclusion. After the Covid-19 pandemic and the growing awareness of violent discrimination, structural racism, and the impact of the Black Lives Matter movement, it seems that no analyst can be immune to the cultural context in which they work. It seems unavoidable to take a position.
In her presentation, guest discussant, Patricia Gherovici, will address questions such as: How is the current socio-political context affecting our patients and how do we work with this in clinical practice? How might the analyst's biases impede the treatment? How does that affect the ideal of neutrality? Is it enough to be aware of our unconscious racism and prejudices like heterosexism or gender normativity? How can we help psychoanalysis to develop and thrive in our currently conflicted situation?
There will a group discussion after the speaker's presentation and participants are invited to contribute.
2 CPD points will be awarded by APPI (Association for Psychoanalysis and Psychotherapy in Ireland).
Those with difficulty with the fee can write to firstname.lastname@example.org.
