20 November 5:30pm-8:00pm AWST

Dr Grace Tarpey will explore the current crisis of loneliness. The global pandemic has caused isolation that has both generated and revealed systemic social, political and economic cracks but also psychological crises. Depression, anxiety and a disabling sense of emptiness is the experience for many at this time. Grace will show how psychoanalysis is an antidote to loneliness as it is a response to the existential void. Through language impacting the body the analyst stands in for the place of the Other to serve as a support for psychological and emotional suffering. As such psychoanalysis opens a time for desire and love.

For PACFA Registrants, this Networking PD counts as 1.5 hours of Category A CPD and will strictly be limited to 30 participants due to covid restrictions.
