New Publication

BOOK PUBLICATION BY DIEGO BUSIOL

Friend of KLPG, Diego Busiol, has a new book, titled Lacanian Psychoanalysis in Practice. In his book, fourteen Lacanian psychoanalysts from Italy and France present how they listen and understand clinical questions, and how they operate in session. More than a theoretical ‘introduction to Lacan’, this book stems from clinical issues, is written by practicing psychoanalysts and not only presents theoretical concepts, but also their use in practice.
