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".

Clinical Members of the Centre for Lacanian Analysis


The CLA, through its clinical members, offers psychoanalytic treatment for children, adolescents and adults. We welcome self referrals and referrals made by other health professionals.
