The event is on the 4th floor and there is no lift.
Our trainings take place on upper floors, from Spring 2020 they will be accessible by lifts with the following specification: Type 1 provides only limited accessibility for persons using a manual wheelchair as described in EN 12183:2014 or an electrically powered wheelchair of class A described in EN 12184:2014. This car accommodates one wheelchair user without an accompanying person.
Voyeuristic sadism as a form of entertainment is on the rise, with contemporary popular culture steeped in stories of good against evil, in which evil tends toward extreme forms of sadism. Think of the films of Quentin Tarantino, or of the Scandinavian noir detective series The Killing, or of the fantasy series Game of Thrones.
In this half-day event, the psychoanalytic couple psychotherapist Amita Sehgal will examine the corresponding increase in public appetites for sadomasochism as a recreational activity.
She will outline some of the ideas in her recent edited book, Sadism: Psychoanalytic Developmental Perspectives (Routledge, 2018), which participants are encouraged to read, and she will consider a psychoanalytic understanding of sadism.
During the day, consideration will be given to the phenomenon of sadomasochism at different stages of the human life cycle: childhood, adolescence, adulthood and in later life.
The clinical implications of working with couples in which sadism features will be considered, and there will be the opportunity for attendees to present a case for discussion.
Participants can expect to gain a greater understanding of the nature of sadism and sadomasochism from the day, which is suitable for practitioners working with couples or individuals.
