Circle for the Lacanian Orientation in Omaha
Division of Psychoanalysis,
Creighton University Department of Psychiatry
Two Seminars with Alexandre Stevens
Working in Institutions and Agencies
Friday, 1:30 pm - 6:00 pm, April 6, 2007
Omaha, Nebraska
"In the United States, many of the institutions and agencies organized to deliver mental health services follow a medical model in their organization and structure, though there are other models as well, such as the Recovery Model or the 12-Step Model used in many addictions treatment programs. The mental health clinician who works from a different orientation such as psychoanalysis will find himself or herself faced with challenges in practicing in such settings. We will examine how a psychoanalyst or psychoanalytically oriented therapist might practice in such a setting. We will also describe the organization of two different types of institutions established by psychoanalysts. The first is the Courtil, a residential and partial treatment program set up for children with severe mental illness. In contrast to programs serving similar needs in the US, the Courtil provides a treatment in which all members of the program truly focus on the particularities of the needs for each child. The Courtil does not provide a psychoanalysis for the patients that it serves, but the treatment is delivered by a varied group of clinicians that includes psychoanalysts and clinicians from different specialties, all of whom focus not on delivering ideals specific to their background or orientations, but on finding a particular treatment for each patient. We will also describe another new form of treatment established in Europe and South America, the Center for Psychoanalytic Consultation and Treatment, which delivers time-limited outpatient treatments by psychoanalysts to meet the clinical demands of our time."
Working with Autism and Child Psychosis
Saturday, 8:30 am - 6:00 pm, April 7, 2007
Omaha, Nebraska
"The treatment of autism in the United States is now limited to very pedagogically oriented behavioral treatments. We will describe the work done within the School of the Freudian Cause over the last two decades in its investigation and treatment of autism. While not providing a psychoanalysis in any way, the psychoanalysts who work with autistic children focus on the establishment of a relationship of the autistic subject to the Other, the world around the subject. This is done through an establishment of a different use of language for the autistic subject. We will also examine the varied forms of psychosis in childhood. This may include classic psychiatric presentations of psychosis such as childhood schizophrenia, but also the newer forms of psychosis of today, including ordinary psychosis and the subtle ways in which psychosis presents itself in the common new symptoms of today, such as addictions and eating disorders."
Alexandre Stevens is a psychoanalyst and psychiatrist, practicing in Brussels, Belgium, and Paris, France. In addition to the private practice of psychoanalysis, Dr. Stevens has been active in the organization of mental health institutions. In September 1982, he founded Courtil, a residential and partial treatment program that serves children and young adults with psychosis and severe mental illness, which now serves over 150 people. He was also involved in the formation of the Belgian Center for Psychoanalytic Consultation and Treatment, an outpatient treatment clinic that opened in January, 2007. He is a frequent guest speaker throughout Europe, Canada, and the United States. He has published over 100 articles in journals and books chapters, and his work has been translated from French into English, Spanish, and Italian. He has served numerous administrative positions, including President of the New Lacanian School, President of the École de la Cause freudienne, and Treasurer of the World Association of Psychoanalysis. A very active teacher, he is also the Director of the Clinical Section of the Freudian Field in Belgium and has worked in the establishment of Clinical Sections in other countries.
