|TICP Conference May 5, 2018: Dr. Ken Corbett|
PLAY CHANGES US: Reverie, Transition, Illusion, Potential, Self-Care
Presenter: Ken Corbett, Ph.D.
Saturday May 5, 2018
10:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.
Northrop Frye Theatre, NF003, in the Victoria University Complex at the University of Toronto
73 Queens Park Cr. E., Toronto, ON, M5S 1K7
This day-long event sets out to study play and psychoanalytic practice. How does the transitive work of playing allow us to practice and play the other, including the practice of preservation, and the rupture of resistance? How do we court transitional space, intermediate zones, and potential space as means to support the leap of play and the ongoing work of psychotherapy? How do we lean into the logic of play in order to sustain illusion and court reverie? And how might that logic – that practice – serve as a means of self-care?
Morning Address: Transit: Playing the Other
