Clinical Encounters with Psychosis from Lacan and Beyond.

The Southeast Florida Association For Psychoanalytic Psychology, The Florida Psychoanalytic Center and the Ticho Foundation present a memorial conference in honor of Donna Bentolila, our friend and colleague who died last year and whose 70th birthday would have coincided with this event. Our invited speaker is the internationally renowned psychoanalyst, Françoise Davoine, who dedicates her talk to the memory of Donna with whom she enjoyed close collaborations over the years as well as a dear friendship.
In the morning presentation, Madness and the Social Link, Dr. Davoine will discuss one such point of connection which occurred through the Lacan Forum at the Austen Riggs Center. Dr. Davoine had been invited as an Erickson scholar to transcribe the work that she and her late husband, Jean-Max Gaudillière, had produced during their four decade long weekly seminars at the École des Hautes Études en Sciences Sociales (EHESS) in Paris under the title “Madness and the Social Link.”
Dr. Davoine’s presentation emerges out of that collaboration, touching in particular on a poignant conversation she remembers having with Donna in 2017 sparked by Freud’s “curiosity” in the first pages of his book on W. Jensen’s Gradiva (1907). Here Freud writes about the dreams and delusions of characters imagined by creative writers as “valuable allies and their evidence is to be prized highly, for they are apt to know a whole host of things between heaven and earth of which our philosophy has not yet let us dream. In their knowledge of the mind they are far in advance of us everyday people, for they draw upon sources which we have not yet opened up for science.” As a testimony to Donna’s common engagement with these creative allies, Dr. Davoine will discuss how the work of writers such as Toni Morrison, Jack Kerouac, Kurt Vonnegut and others give us precious tools for our work with psychosis, trauma and primitive psychic states.
1. Participants will be able to identify cultural and psychological crossovers between madness and society.
2. Participants will recognize ways in which literary representations of dreams, delusion and madness enhance psychoanalytic conceptions of psychosis and primitive mental states of all patients.
3. Participants will learn innovative treatment modalities and clinical interventions derived from the presenter’s direct work with patients.
4. Participants will recognize ways in which theoretical insights into psychosis lead to more effective clinical treatment of major mental illnesses and primal aspects of all patients..
