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 towards 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, Dr Amita Sehgal will examine the corresponding increase in public appetites for sadomasochism and will outline some of the ideas in her recent edited book, Sadism: Psychoanalytic Developmental Perspectives (Routledge, 2018), which participants are encouraged to read.
She will consider a psychoanalytic understanding of sadism, and 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.
