Other Lectures
Mind - Delving into the depths
- A series of 6 Public Lectures by Neville Symington
These lectures are an attempt to delve deeper into the mind ... how might we understand the ways in which minds communicate with each other and what is it that obstructs such communication? The way we think about these things and the goals which need to be aimed for affects profoundly the way we communicate with our patients.

Controversial Discussions - a series of ten lectures by John McClean and Maurice Whelan
"The Controversial Discussions" was a name given to a series of meetings held in the British Psychoanalytical Society in London in the 1940's.  But discussions of a controversial nature have been a feature of psychoanalysis since it was founded, and our contention is that if psychoanalysis ever ceases to be controversial that it will have ceased to be a viable force in people's lives.

Bion Lectures
The Sydney Institute for Psychoanalysis is pleased to announce a group of 5 lectures on Bion. "The human animal has not ceased to be persecuted by his mind and the thoughts usually associated with it - whatever their origin might be". Bion.
