The CLA in conjunction with the NZ Forum will be running this year a training in Psychoanalysis within the Lacanian field. This year training will be based on the book 

Key Concepts of Lacanian Psychoanalysis

(Dany Nobus, editor)

In Key Concepts of Lacanian Psychoanalysis, "eight crucial Lacanian ideas are explored through detailed exploration of the theoretical and/or practical context in which Lacan introduced them, the way in which they developed throughout his works, and the questions they were designed to answer".

Welcome to the Centre for Lacanian Analysis

The Centre for Lacanian Analysis was established in 2006 as the first New Zealand centre for clinical practitioners and researchers, whose focus stems from the frudian field of psychoanalytic within the lacanian orientation. The Centre is a not-for-profit incorporated society and has formulated an annual program of seminars, lectures and clinical training sessions.

The Centre has a membership program, and current membership is composed of clinical practitioners, academic researchers, postgraduate research students, and individuals in professions, including those of visual arts and design, who have an ongoing commitment to engaging with the works of Lacan.

We have held a number of Conferences with distinguished local and overseas speakers and we maintain a programme of seminars and study groups.
