April 16, 2022 Online seminar "Philoctetes-man in the labyrinth"

Dear Colleagues!

The Society for Child Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy and the Center for Child Psychology August invite you to a seminar


On the example of Sophocles' drama Philoctetes and Robert Silverberg's fantasy novel The Man in the Labyrinth, we will talk about the complexity of integrating the "wound" into mental space. The clinical material provided will help us think of complex cases, such as those in which the person becomes entangled in a maze of rigid psychic defenses that isolate him from the object and make him feel like an outcast.

Speaker - Ekaterina Koshkina, psychotherapist of the August Center, ODPP candidate.


Galina Guseva, psychotherapist, member of the IGO, member of the ODPP, teacher of the program "Psychoanalytic psychotherapy for children and adolescents"

Margarita Nesterenko - psychoanalyst, member of the IGO, president of the ODPP, teacher of the program "Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy for Children and Adolescents"

Psychotherapists of the Center for Child Psychology "August", candidates of the ODPP Sofya Aniskina, Maria Makarova, Irina Rybakova and Natalia Shustova will also take part in the discussion.

The workshop will take place on April 16, 2022,

Start at 16.00

Duration - 1.5 hours
