Live Webinar

Coaching with Lacan

May 03, 2023
12:00pm to 01:00pm ET

This webinar will introduce practical approaches to coaching inspired by the work of Jacques Lacan.  Following a brief introduction to Lacan and his insights on the nature of human subjectivity, this session will focus on ways of applying two key elements of the Lacanian field:

  1. Attending to the unique patterns in a client’s speech and intervening as a coach through the use of language 
  2. Exploring the nature and importance of desire, in both client and coach

While the body of Lacanian theory is vast and has a reputation for being dense and difficult to understand, the aim of this session will be to distill a few kernels to stimulate practitioners’ thinking and offer ideas that can be immediately applied.  This webinar will be useful even for those who have never previously heard of Lacan.
