"Charles Chaplin or The Metamorphosed Sadness"

Since March 15, 2009, Lacanian Compass has offered a series of video conference meetings that allow our members and close colleagues from across the United States to meet between our face to face encounters so as to overcome the great distances that separate us and allow us to work collectively on a regular basis.

Another feature of our meetings is that we invite colleagues from all of the different Schools of the World Association of Psychoanalysis to join us, to offer presentations, and thus allow us to engage globally with our colleagues.

The meetings are held in a series, on the theme of the upcoming Clinical Study Days.

The Video Conferences are open to Members of the Lacanian Compass and by invitation or permission.
