Author Interview: Lockdown Therapy How the Pandemic Changed the Theory and Practice of Psychoanalysis

October 27th, 2022

Author Interview | Offered Live via Zoom

Program Description

A Pacifica Online Author Interview with Stefano Carpani and Monica Luci

In their soon-to-be-released book, Lockdown Therapy, analysts and authors, Stefano Carpani and Monica Luci, offer Jungian perspectives from world recognized analysts and their patients regarding how the Covid-19 pandemic profoundly changed the way psychoanalysis not only is practiced, but the ways in which psychoanalysts think about how and why they practice.  Based on a series of interviews with leading authors in analytical psychology as well as essays offering a more subjective, behind-the-scenes reality, this book offers a definitive exploration of the ways the pandemic has changed the theoretical, clinical, technical as well as practical approaches to contemporary psychoanalysis.

In this interview, Stefano and Monica will talk about some of the common themes that emerged in their discussions with world-recognized analysts as well as some of the surprising elements that surfaced.  Now, while still emerging from the recent global lockdowns and still dealing with the evolving variants of COVID-19, this interview will look at the ways in which the theory and practice of psychoanalysis may have been permanently altered.
