This series will not be recorded.

The level of these seminars is advanced, you will need prior knowledge of psychoanalytic theory, and it will be more suitable for those with clinical experience.

Francesca Hume is a fellow of the British Psychoanalytic Society with a private analytic practice in London. She runs clinical and theoretical seminars in the UK and in several countries abroad. She has written about different areas of Kleinian theory and about analytic training. 

A series of two seminars to explore an analytic theory of Depression, Manic states and Mourning from a Kleinian perspective, and a third seminar to explore these concepts through a clinical case. The first two seminars will involve close reading and discussion of the two listed papers by Klein, addressing these themes.

Papers included in this series:

1935 paper: Klein, M, A contribution to the psychogenesis of manic-depressive states, IJPA, 16: 145-74.

1940 paper: Klein, M Mourning and its relation to manic-depressive states, IJPA, 16: 125-53 .
