Academia de Psicoanalisis

Theoretical specialization course and Psychoanalytic Practice

January 7, 2019
Sigmund Freud demonstrated, in creating the psychoanalytic doctrine, that all our behaviors, feelings and ways of relating to one another are determined by unconscious motivations unknown to ourselves, though not less powerful. Such motivations refer to the history of a subject, a story that is not expressed as a past chronologically "surpassed" but… [+] as a here and now in permanent repetition. The links that make us speaking beings, the history of which a person comes points, as a structure, a destiny for the subject. When listening to patients, we find traces of this destiny in all aspects of their reality: economic, professional, affective, sexual, as well as a deep disagreement of the person with all these things that, enigmatically, inhabit her. Wanting to know about this, position to which psychoanalysis makes place, operates a position of dignity with respect to the overwhelming character of the Other's desire. The ethics of psychoanalysis, transference through, installs a gap between what is written about me and the question itself. What do I want? How do I want to live my life? The Academy of Psychoanalysis represents, from the journey through these crossroads, a joint space of growth and limit to human discomfort. Such is the point at which research and therapy coincide. Who ignores, repeats. Who is willing to know ... who wants, has a life. [-]

In recent years, online degrees in health-related fields have become a popular alternative to traditional brick-and-mortar degrees. Online degrees offer students the flexibility to plan their schoolwork according to their own schedule.

Online degrees can help students and working professionals advance their current career, acquire an additional specialization, or even switch careers entirely. However, in the field of healthcare not any degree can be taken entirely online, as there is often a need for practical hands-on experience. Students of online health programs are therefore offered the possibility of internships and on-site visits in healthcare facilities, so that they could also acquire the necessary practical skills.
